There was a scene, in this second installment, where a little girl, who could talk to God (George Burns), asks God, “Why do bad things happen?” God replied, “I always had trouble making one sided things.”
He goes on to explain that every front has a back, every light has a dark, good has evil, sickness has health, and so on. What in life does not have an opposing force or opposite side?

Yes there could be other ways of god telling us when what we are doing is wrong, or unhealthy and so on.

I was always taught that pain is the devil's work. So don't blame God, blame satan.

Without pain, we don't fully comprehend joy. Without darkness, there can be no light...etc, etc...
The universe seeks a balance.
How does " pain" save your life?
Imagine people who are tortured to death by some psychopath its simply " cruel" beyond belief but this happens also in the animal kingdoms they tear each other apart.
I just feel its unacceptable and the creator could have chosen a better way to translate what is " not right" from what is right...
