I am a life long Christian but I still have such difficulty in trying to understand why God would allow such horrific deaths....the torturous ways...all people but especially infants and children. I'm trying to accept it and to just trust God...but it so breaks my heart for the people who were so tortured. At least if they were killed instantly would be easier to accept.
