Why does God allow bad things to happen to relatively good people?
Why does the Lord let the wicked ridicule and physically harm the generally righteous?
Why did the Creator allegedly create former-archangel Lucifer, give him a free will, let him rebel against God's authority, become renamed as Satan, and put him in serpent form within the Garden of Eden to lethally tempt totally-nude Eve to eat the slowly-fatal poisonous fruit of The Forbidden Tree in the Garden?
Why did the Almighty even create the forbidden Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil in the first place to destroy the sacred innocence of shameless public nudity, not create adequate-enough safety barriers to prohibit access to that Tree, and not more extensively and exhaustively convey to Eve the horrific far-reaching consequences against her (and her future offspring) by her simply nibbling or chomping into some forbidden fruit off some Forbidden Tree?
Why did God even suggest the option of eating some potentially lethal fruit off some potentially lethal Tree, and thus put the idea to do so into the minds of the mutually-naked married couple roaming around The Garden of Eden?
The answer is similar regarding why God created solar ultraviolet radiation for people to sunburn themselves with, cliffs to lethally jump off of to their deaths, poison to fatally swallow, fermented juice to become drunk with, fire for people to burn themselves with, rocks to bludgeon each other with, hemp to hang themselves and others with, and water to drown themselves and others with.
God never commanded anyone to misuse His environmental provisions to injure or murder themselves and/or others with. And would it have insulted Eve's power-and-knowledge-craving feminist intelligence for God to tediously belabor the inferior gender and former-male-rib with lengthy and repetitious dissertations on the ramifications of her ingesting poisonous fruit?
Just how much of a lengthy biological and anthropological treatise was required by Eve for her to simply avoid what she should have avoided? How hard is it, and how much academic endeavor and achievement does it take, to simply turn a light switch off and on, or utter a plain "no" or "yes" to something?
It is thus clear that although the Creator was not to blame for the sordid and diabolical tragedy of Eve and Adam sticking disallowed stuff into the big holes under their noses while in The Garden, He certainly was involved with and even responsible for it all happening.
Admittedly, He neither forced Eve and Adam to screw up, nor did any of the stumbling blocks (e.g. the serpent, the Tree) aggressively advance toward them, begging them to disobediently transgress; Eve instead deliberately went to them of her own free will, and was not involuntarily "born that way."
But the Creator Himself was the one who imposed the imperfect stumbling blocks into a purportedly "perfect" creation which had been called "very good" at the end of the first chapter of the Old-Testament book of Genesis.
Realizing that the dangerous situation in the Garden was not fail-safe, He had already thought up a Contingency Plan to compensate for the virtually inevitable that actually did finally and sadly occur.
That Plan consisted of part of Himself, a segment of The Holy Trinity called "The Son of God," to Himself become temporary finite to some extents in infinitesimal human form, and allow Himself to be cruelly and injustly slandered, humiliated, whipped, and tortured to the fatal extent of finally being painfully pinned on a cross in public view.
Being that the one so crucified on that cross was none other than the Creator of all that exists in the physical Universe -- according to the first chapter of the gospel of John, the first chapter of the New-Testament epistle of Colossians, and the first chapter of the New-Testament book of Hebrews, along with:
Proverbs 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the [south/west/north/east] ends of the Earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name? Surely you know!
-- we (and all other humans of the past) who presently are hopefully not considered trespassing (or having trespassed) on His planet, and who are (and have been) seamlessly integrated into and bodily part of His surrounding environmental entities, obviously have a current obligation to agree with, accept, and accommodate to His Contingency Plan of forgiveness....of necessity tied in with and related to that ancient Expiational Crucified Sacrifice concerning, and applied to, our occasional and understandably-regretted past and ongoing "sinful" non-compliance against His natural phenomena, processes, and Holy-Bible Operating Instructions.
But does the temporary agony and death which Jesus Christ experienced on some cross nearly 2000 years ago over in the Middle East make up for all the misery and suffering of a vast conglomeration of people before that time and since then? How has that atonement provided for all Earth's human inhabitants alleviated the distress of myriad human creatures?
Here is where the abstract concept, but also reality, of "eternity" becomes a vital factor.
Several things have been promised to and for those who believe and profess redemption because of Christ sacrificing Himself on that aforementioned cross.
One of which is the total annihilation of all around them which is irreparably polluted.
Another is total, complete, and permanent sequestration and separation away from the wicked non-compliant who (unlike God) are the ones to blame and at fault for "man's inhumanity to man" -- a horde of relentlessly-impenitent deviates who in no way would be content nor happy to permanently reside in a perfect-morality Heaven with the anti-feminist-sexism, anti-homogay/homosodomite-immorality, anti-atheistic, anti-agnostic, anti-fornication, anti-adultery, anti-pornography, anti-immodesty, anti-abortion-homicide, anti-thieving/anti-greedy-for-money, anti-vulgarity, anti-tattoos, anti-"palestinian" and "Bible-thumping/hellfire-and-damnation-preaching" religious right, plus mandatory close-proximity confinement near the King of absolute and everlasting holiness.
A third is the creation of new heavens and a new Earth in which temptation to sin, defiling the duressed, is forever no longer desired by anyone nor possible, along with the promise of supernatural and superhuman indestructible bodies never subject to decay nor malfunction, with astonishing creative-activity capacities now non-imaginable by mere mortals.
