Does God Allow Evil?

I grew up hearing it.  "God 'allows' evil to occur.  He uses it to teach us." But the idea that God would allow horrid things to happen to the people he loves in order to teach them is like beating one's children as a method of instruction or believing that rape or torture are acceptable methods of discipline.
