* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi'' uses an extremely dark take on this in the backstory of [[spoiler: Miyo Takano, making this trope the root cause of both her megalomania and as a result the Endless June]].

To counter this idea, the faithful may choose to believe that God works InMysteriousWays, so He may allow bad things for a higher purpose. One common argument is that evil results from [[SlidingScaleOfFreeWillVsDestiny God allowing people]] [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill to have their own free will]]. Alternately, perhaps GodIsFlawed.

* In ''Series/{{Deadwood}}'', Reverend Smith is suffering from some kind of brain disease, but doesn't do himself any favors by continuing working and thinking it's God's will that he got sick. Doc Cochran says "If this is God's plan, Reverend, He is a son of a bitch." He later [[RageAgainstTheHeavens yells at God]] for allowing people like the reverend and the dying soldiers he met in the Civil War to suffer so badly.

** ''ComicBook/JustAPilgrim'': the titular pilgrim, an ex-Special Forces type who found the Lord in prison, survived the end of the world when the sun moved closer, drying up the oceans, and found the last remnants of humanity hiding in the Marianas Trench. Throughout the entire book his faith in God wouldn't be out of place in Warhammer40K, but he finally snaps when a mutant race of jellyfish takes over a little girl. His last act before his heroicSacrifice is to toss out the Bible he wanted the surivors to take.

* ''Series/AllInTheFamily'': Season 8's "Edith's Crisis of Faith." Her steadfast Christianity -- she defined it far better than Archie ever did or could -- is one of Edith's defining traits, and makes her who she is. So when she witnesses her son-in-law, Mike, and the family's friend, Beverly [=LaSalle=] jumped and brutally beaten in a robbery attempt, and Beverly dies of his injuries, Edith wonders why God allowed the bad guys to win. She temporarily renounces her Christianity ... until Mike tells her that maybe God didn't want this to happen, but merely it was just bad guys being, well, bad guys. Edith realizes that some things aren't meant to be understood -- i.e., why evil exists in the world (a large reason why Mike years earlier renounced his Catholic vows) -- and that she has not only good memories of the family's friendship with Beverly ... and a lot more to be thankful for.

planning to do a page on The Season to be Wary, which this story is from. Plus it might actually be Pay Evil Unto Evil.
* This happens to a black preacher in Creator/RodSerling's "Color Line". Then again, if ''your'' youngest child died screaming in a fire set by jumped-up Southern whites in a lynching mood, and your revenge on the white rabble-rouser who stirred up the mob [[spoiler: turns into a creepy case of NotSoDifferent by switching race with the guy and using his own words to get a mob to kill him]], you might feel that way too.
