You are mistaken in your view. God IS love. He made it exist. It is his greatest attribute. The scripture says with evil things God can not be tried, nor does he himself try anyone. He Sent his only son to die for us so that we can be redeemed. And as the creator of all good things, he can undo all the harm that man has done. Soon he will, then we will welcome our loved ones back from the dead. Sickness, death, suffering, pain will all be removed. God has permitted man to use his free will in order to show us that we were not designed to rule apart from him. We cannot direct our own step let alone others. And we have no power to change the plagues of man.6
You’re setting the definition of “good” at not letting bad things happen. But we know this isn’t true. For example, we all know that a helicopter parent that never lets their child experience anything bad is not a good parent. We know that people born unable to feel pain are in constant danger, to the point of near disability (don’t realize how hot the pan is, etc…) We know a forced apology isn’t worth sh*t. All the “good” deeds of a man done against his will, do not make him a good person. We know that progress is driven by discomfort, and that hedonistic lifestyles usually lead to poor quality of life and in society to a general lack of development and improvements. In his infinite knowledge and wisdom, and goodness, God chose to use His infinite power to create a world where some of that goodness could exist. And that included allowing bad things to happen.0
This Negative disintegrating force is the Integrating Power working, so to say, at a lower level relatively to that at which it had been working in the organism that is being dissolved. It is not another power. Both the Bible and common‐sense tell us that ultimately there can be only ONE power in the universe, which must, therefore, be the Building‐power, so that there can be no such thing as a power which is negative in itself; but it shows itself negatively in relation to the particular individual, if through want of recognition he fails to provide the requisite conditions for it to work positively.
But I think the answer you are looking for is this: God is impersonal.1

Bold of you to think you know what "good" is on a godly scale. I'm atheist, but I can still recognize that this argument fallacious, because you don't actually know all the repercussions of what happens.
Even ignoring that, if you were to think that freedom was the ultimate good, then you would also accept that people who are given it may do bad, and stopping it would be you betraying the ultimate good, yourself.5
We’re human so we can’t be all powerful all good and all knowledgeable God can be the creator of the universe would be all powerful god sets the rules in which we live by so we can be all good, God knows what we’re going to do but he lets us have free will so he can be all knowledgeable. If human didn’t have free will we wouldn’t be able to choose good over evil we would just be doing good but that the same time we would just basically be like robots1
Why don't you try actually READING the kjv Bible! It's all in there. Free will! People have free will! Through God's prophecy, he knows all things are set for a reason, changing anything would make God a liar and Satan equal to God. The meaning of life is to thwart Satan's plans.7
... Or... wait for it... "All Powerful, All Knowing and All Good" are subjective and meaningless terms, and they are human centric! Should have finished school kiddo. God is God.
A lion will kill a rival male, eat it's children, and mate with it's females, plus fight to the death all it's life. A human doing that would be regarded as "evil". But to the other lions it can't be, as it's emulating what they do.
You're struggling with critical thinking.5
Trying to apply logic to an imaginary being isn't very logical.11
Still trolling Christians with click bait I see. I'd like to know what you believe as it doesn't seem to be in God. I take it you are really an atheist.7
God is All Powerful, All Knowing and All Good.
God is not our servant to be forced to fix our mistakes.
God help us and show us the way, but we fix our own mistakes.4
God is All Powerful, All Knowing and All Good. Just because you you can not does not mean God can not...1
Just ask him.4
And this is probably the main reason why I left religion.
I've always understood that god and monotheism is the main aspect, but when I think about it deeply with all his traits, the ones you mentioned, he seems kind of messed up and sadistic.
God is more than capable of creating a reality where only good exists and he could have created something other than humans or program them to be another way e. g. make them incapable of feeling sadness.
Even if god never created humans and the animals we have in this world basically ruled it, look at how sadistic it can be too, I mean how many animals kill and eat other animals, it's simply a cruel world and Mr All Powerful decided to make it that way, which says it all, but apparently the devil is the bad guy, I mean what does he even do, punish people in the hellfire, that god created for none-believers, basically doing his dirty work.
