Moral consequences of 'test' theodicy
When God supposedly allows disasters and sickness, many think He doesn't wrong people because He tests their steadfastness (...not to mention natural calamities are distributed in a "random" and unequal way).
Then, by this logic, you're not a criminal if you torture some persons or deliberatly infect them with sickness.. JUST to test their psychological stamina, no?
Some apologists replied: "Only God has this right. Special pleading? No! Because, being their Creator, He owns them".
Could you tell me what you think of their answer?
