God’s imperfection

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

25 Iyyar 5767
Question
Kindly tell me if the following implies that God is imperfect. Statement: If God were indeed perfect, He could achieve all of His ends without human suffering.
Answer
G-d is perfect. By definition. Human suffering is mainly caused by man himself. In the odd cases it is G-d's full responsibility; Hashem with his infinite wisdom does all for the sake of man and his benefit, even if we can't always understand how and why.
