You sound serious, so let me give you a serious answer as a computer programmer (who has his own problems with faith).
The FIRST thing you learn as a programmer new to a computer programming language is how to create “Hello World!”.
In other words, how do you print something back to a computer user.
The second thing you do as a (young) computer programmer is to change the tutorial to something like “Hello Phil!”
The third thing you do (again, as a young programmer) is learn about loops so that you can print out to the computer
“Phil is the greatest human being EVER” 100 times.
Then you understand God’s problem: because you are basically praising yourself (as a programmer) it’s meaningless. You can tell the computer to praise you a brazilian times, and it still means nothing because you told the computer to do it.
So what God did (and PLEASE, hard core believers of ANY denomination, don’t hate me - this isn’t theology, it’s philosophy) is go and create a bunch of universes, most of which were simply “Hello Worlds” where he only got back what he put in.
Then He created this universe in which evolved these curiously strange creatures which had free will. These creatures didn’t have to “praise God” because God programmed them to do it, they praised God because they CHOSE to!
The side effect of this “free will” thingy is that many of them chose to take a machete to others they didn’t like.
And God decided that those who chose to praise Him would have their suffering (which, in the grand scheme of things like the age of the universe is frankly an absurdly short period of time) redeemed upon death.
Is it the “best of all possible worlds?” Perhaps not. But it may be the best of world’s which are possible in which free will exists...
