"God" as "he" is conceived, is a LOGICAL IMPOSSIBILITY.

God is said to be Omniscient, all-knowing, knows everything that's going on;

Omnipotent, all-powerful, controls everything that's going on;

and all-Good.

Now, he can be any TWO of those things -- take your pick; but god CAN'T be all three, if words are to have any meaning at all.

He can be unknowing of all the evil and suffering going on in the world {especially that done in his name!};

can know all of what's going on, but be unable to stop it;

but he CAN'T be both the first two things, and be GOOD, in the same sense that we commonly use the words "good" or "kind" or "loving" or "compassionate" to describe ourselves or our neighbors! To say that "we just can't understand god" or "god has different standards than we do", is nothing but a {traditional} cop-out that completely perverts the meaning of "good" to mean, as a word, one thing when it comes to our ordinary standards of behavior, and a totally different meaning ONLY when applied to "god".

An entity can't be ALL black AND ALL white at the same time! Of course, an entity can be MIXED colors, and a god can be PARTLY good and evil. But that is not how religious people define him! People are finally getting sick of dealing with this nonsense conundrum.....
