Why Bad Things Happen Even To Good People

Why do bad things happen even to good people? Why is there so much suffering in the world?

Religions are hard-pressed to find a convincing answer to these questions because the existence of evil, suffering and pain in our 'lived life' is incompatible with the omnipotent, omniscient and completely benevolent notion of God. If the creator of the universe has all positive virtues and no negative attributes then there connot be any evil or suffering in the world.
