So our free-will resulted in a tsunami around Christmas that killed 10,000+ people?
Or are natural laws above god's influence. Surely he created everything in this world, so he must have created the mechanisms in nature that allowed for such a thing to occur.

Yet again another rubbish argument.
If nobody lives near a volcano and it errupts...then is the volcano erupting "evil" / "terrible" / "disatrous" ...no.
As soon as humans are present it is terrible, evil, suffering, disatrous, flawed by design.
Your argument is ridiculous. You are also arguing that suffering causes the god of classical theism to be illogical.
Who are you to say what all loving means for an all powerful being?
God can control all the elements, but he will not interfere with the natural course of life.
Hitler in heaven? Not a chance.

Are you referring to Pascal's Wager? The main problem with it, is you have already assumed "Christianity" is correct.
What about the countless other religions that claim the same divinity and truth.
Are they wrong?
