- Divine Audit:
When we see tragedies and bad things happen to people many people ask the question “If there really is a God then why did this happen to these people but not to that person?” “Why these people but not those people?”
“Why did this person have a bad thing happen but not that one?”
This is a variation of the timeless question
“Why do bad things happen to good people?”
There are many answers to consider and but one BiteByte of truth can be taken directly from mouth of Jesus himself as he taught about an incident “in the news” that occurred during his the time of his ministry on earth.Why bad things happen to people? Jesus comments! (Luke 13:1-5 NIV)
[reftagger title=””]Luke 13:1-5 (KJV)[/reftagger]
1 About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple.
2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered?
3 Not at all! And you will perish, too, unless you repent of your sins and turn to God.
4 And what about the eighteen people who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them? Were they the worst sinners in Jerusalem?
5 No, and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.”
