I was recently told by someone I know that they think God enjoys people suffering, from 'innocent' people to babies. He allows it because He must enjoy it, this person reasoned, otherwise He wouldn't allow it and not intervene. I am at a loss of how o refute this person. I mean I told the person of the Adam and Eve story and that God ultimately has a purpose for it, perhaps to make us stronger. Yet, they were insistent that they were correct (despite being Biblically illiterate). What are ways to relate God and the role of suffering to each other?
