This the game called "you can't win". There is nothing you can say that will make a difference. I have had this conversation many times with religious people. It always comes down to the same thing:

God knows the entire "master plan" and we puny humans only see our small slice of the pie. God loves us and cares for us and wouldn't do anything that's bad for us. Just like a parent who takes his child to the doctor to get a shot (pain) which is really for the child's good, so too God gives us pain which is really for our own good.

Give up, my friend, because you lost this game once you began to play.
