Maybe God needs to revise his strategy because obviously not too many see any value in adversity. For most, hardships do not make them better. They make them worse. Looks like God did not do a thorough study before he devised his grand strategy.
Secondly. The vast majority of people who were born into hard times end up going through life having hard times and end up going to their graves having never knowing anything but hard times. Looks like God's specific purposes for bringing us through times of hardships is nothing other than pie in the sky.
Lastly, there is no correlation between having hardships and hating evil. That is no more than preachers seeking to con people.
