When we ask "why would God allow...?", we need to remember Good Friday and Easter Sunday. It is on those days "when God allowed" the death of His own Son.
Christ is flogged to satisfy the crowd, yet they demand that He be crucified. Pilate hands him over to be crucified. Christ, bearing his own cross, would soon exchange His own life for the crosses we bear. (John 19)
Pray that we understand Christ's death and soon-to-be resurrection was an exchange. Our sinful lives were redeemed through the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ.
