Evil directly influences and causes suffering so therefore they run hand in hand. Many people question God for him allowing evil to be real. Why would he allow evil to be known if he knows how bad things can get. Depending on how one views the concept of “God,” they can explain evil and suffering. God, in some views, can be defined as all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-loving (Reuter, 8/29).
