If God is so perfect, then why did he create something so imperfect allowing pain, suffering and daily atrocities?

God created everything perfectly. And he created people with free will. True free will means you can do things as perfectly as God does, or do them any other way. All people at one point or another choose to do things not the way God would want them to be doing things. Some people choose to do a lot of things not the way God would want them to do things. And this leads to pain, suffering, and attrocities. You can’t blame God for evil. Because God is not a dictator, He created people with free will. When people abuse this great gift of free will, it’s not God’s fault. 


Not only can you not blame God for suffering, you should be thanking Him daily for not allowing evil to run without restraints. If God allowed all evil people want to do, we would destroy ourselves and this planet a long time ago. Of all the bad things that could happen to you every day, you should be so greatful only a few bad things happen occasionally.
