This quote about sums it up. Elie is reflecting on his experience near the end of the novel,
"Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust. Never shall I forget these things, even if I am condemned to live as long as God Himself."
Also a child being hung in chapter 4 pretty much destroys Elie's faith in a benevolent God.
