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.
All of mans hardships are imposed upon them by their fellow man. Creation work fine. So far, mankind cannot alter creation. but dey trying. If God were to kill the people who transgress his statutes, the planet would be without inhabitants. Those who believe in Christ are conscious of the hardships of others and they give alms to manage sufferings as sufferings cannot be eliminated. Not until The Christ returns.
