This is absolute horseshit. Free will was a gift for those God loved most of all His creation. This love for Man was one of the disposing factors that led to the enmity of Lucifer and his insurrection against God.

Free will is not a curse, however, it is a test. God is very clear about this. It opens the world to the influence of evil. That is the test. Your free will, or use thereof, demonstrates your character. This opens up people to the evil acts of others, certainly.

How can free will exist if God is omniscient? Either he knows what every human did, does and will do or he doesn't, and if he doesn't it means he is not omniscient. And if God is indeed omniscient, then why the need to have a human live some eight decades on Earth before being judged and place either in Heaven or Hell? Wouldn't God already know my fate from birth?

No fucking shit it was given as a curse in the sense it was given as a test and mankind failed thus making it a curse. Most of the actual suffering humanity brings is done by itself. God will punish groups for the actions of individuals. Don't like it? Tough shit, humanity lost that opportunity with original sin.

The child is raped because of humanitys free will. He's not some super hero to call upon whenever you have a problem. He's God.

If your society is wicked and corrupt then innocents will suffer. If society had actually followed the teachings and acted righteous as a group then that would not happen.

You can't blame God for a child being raped. Thats on the rapist.

It's not his job to stop bad things from happening. Whats the worst that'll happen? You die? If you lived a righteous life why would that matter in a religious sense?

Mankind does wicked things to one another because mankind is inherently wicked. They failed the test. Through good works you can become righteous and make up for your nature.

Thats the problem with you atheist faggots, these supposed "gotcha" things are really a misunderstanding of the concepts themselves. They think they do but they don't really.
