Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

I personally stumble over this "go to" response when describing the need for the Lord.

Why does God let these things happen to the vulnerable and innocent?

I was reminded that no one is sinless (innocent) no, not one. And we are all vulnerable to different destructions.

There are many more examples in the AV Bible to answer this and related questions.

I have copied a few, just to get us thinking and hopefully put to bed the distress in the painful 'why' in this case.

-Ezekiel 18:23 = Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

-33:11= Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

-2 Peter 3:9= The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long suffering to us-ward, not willing that anyone should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

-Romans 5:8= But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

-5:14= Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adams transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

-1Corinthians 15:25= For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

-15:26= The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

Galatians2:17= But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is therefore Christ the minister of sin? God forbid.

2Peter 3:18= But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever.

Amen.

Every blessing that God allows,

Xx Val

I am a Canadian living and working in the UK. I live in a small village near Windsor, with my husband of 20 years (thanks love!) We have two nearly grown up gals of 16 and 19. (thanks again, love!) Finally, we have two small dogs that make sure we get out into God's pastures, what ever the weather, whether it's nice or not. I am always glad when I'm out, as I can concentrate on prayer. Sometimes the prayer is interrupted with other dogs and their walkers, but I am grateful for the opportunity to get out and clear the head and heart. I have been a saved Christian since 1987 (thanks John) and have seen my husband and children saved since 2011ish. (thanks so much Barry). We have seen the humble beginnings of a Bible believers church. While people may come and go, the ones that have found, tried and made up their own mind what they do; we study the inspired, infallible word of God, praising our Lord Jesus Christ through prayer and fellowship. (thanks again, Barry). In my moments of pleasure, sometimes at unreasonable hours, I read the scripture through notes I have taken from studies. I also, write and illustrate. This is a new adventure for me, I would love to incorporate these things into the blog and share it with you! XxVal Mumma Bear Wellness is a new blog, sharing with you my own experiences through the tangled web that is GP vs Holistic views. This will NOT be a forum for tussles as I explain in the first post, both can work together. I would love to hear about someone's experiences in relation to the post topic! Until then, go and have the best day you can with every blessing!
