Your post is beautifully put. Why does the pain and suffering being there before the person chooses non love bother you? It seems like you've already answered that in your earlier points? Free will is why the pain and suffering is here in the fallen world, before the first sin there was no pain and suffering, God saw it was all very good. And is this not Satan and his angels world for but a short time?, because of their rebellion against the one true God, maker of all things People have to choose to love God, if they were forced then it wouldn't be love and as such if they choose to follow Satan and a life of sin their actions bring harm. But no pain and suffering is too strong for a person to handle if they give themselves to the Creator. God will not test you beyond your limits.
