"Why do bad things happen to good people?" ..... Romans 3:23 says "for ALL have sinned and
fall short of the glory of God" .... THERE ARE NO GOOD PEOPLE.
Ecclesiastes 7:20 says "Surely there is not a righteous man on earth who does good and never sins" ..... 1 John 1:8 says " If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us" ...... Also read Romans 3:10-18, it goes into ...detail about us.
Every human being on this planet DESERVES to be thrown into hell at this very moment... (Romans 6:23)... Every second we spend alive is only by the grace and mercy of God... Even the most terrible misery we could experience on this planet is Merciful compared to what we DESERVE, which is Eternal hell in the lake of fire.... So the Real question would be, "Why does God allow good things to happen to bad people?"
Romans 5:8 says "God shows his love for us in that while we were STILL sinners, Christ died for us" .... Why does good things happen to bad people? ..... Despite the evil, sinful nature of the people of this world, God still loves us. He loved us enough to die to take the penalty for our sins.... If we receive Jesus Christ as Savior (John 3:16, Romans 10:9), we will be forgiven and promised an eternal home in Heaven... What we DESERVE is hell.. What we are given is eternal life in Heaven if we come to Christ in faith .... So if you ask me "How you doing?".. I will tell you "Better than I deserve".
God bless you (reader)!
