First I would like to say that we humans are all in the same boat as regarded by God. We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Our good is a relative good to temporary societal norms. We live in a broken and fallen world. Continuing in theological discourse, we are all appointed once to die in the flesh as commanded by God due to Adams’ original sin. God has been totally honest with all of us.
Many theologians believe that the soul will exist forever. As a Christian, I believe that God shall destroy some souls in the lake of fire such as the soul of satan; otherwise, souls saved by Christ Jesus will live forever with God and receiving life continuously from God.
I have put into context the worst of bad which is death. All others fall within this context as lesser bads. Treating the lesser bads which are by far the most enumerated, I bring to your attention that the Holy Spirit of God is speaking to each soul, warning of dangers and guiding unto prosperity. The One’s that listen through the ears of Jesus hears God more profoundly.
The Ones that hear profoundly from God takes heed as exampled by a person hearing from in dept sources within their subconsciousness and getting a feeling not to board an airplane, and obeys their feelings while others thinks the person is crazy until later the plane crashes. All Others didn’t hear due to the noise of the world and non-belief in God. I shall admit that at this time noise of the world prevents me from hearing God’s Holy Spirit, that small still voice, most of the time. God is not finished with me; I am working on it.
FALLEN WORLD: this answers the question of why do bad things happen to good people. The world is so noisy that we can not hear God most of the time. God is continuously warning of danger and directing our path in each person’s spirit.
God knows everything from beginning to end in one instant. We live our lives so that we experience and learn what God desires we know. God could have created all of us as robots who questions nothing, but we would not have learned about God our Creator; we would have not learned that we must absolutely obey God, our Heavenly Father. For disobedience separated us from God which lead us unto the curse of death. Regardless of how good is your bible toting Grandma, we all are under the curse of death; can not hear God over the noisy world, and have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Your Granny is at the top of being good relative to social norms, but we all are in the same boat; thereby, bad things happens to good people. After all, the Son of God was crucified in this world, and this was very bad.
Yet for many years You had patience with them, And testified against them by Your Spirit in Your prophets. Yet they would not listen; Therefore You gave them into the hand of the peoples of the lands.
[ Israel’s Rejection of Christ ] I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit,
Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake.
the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
[ The Coming Rejection ] “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
[ The Parable of the Wheat and the Tares ] Another parable He put forth to them, saying: “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field;
but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat and went his way.
But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the tares you also uproot the wheat with them.
Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”
“God makes to rain on the good and the bad.”; Will Myers.
Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” “I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
It is appearance that if we don’t keep our brothers, than our brothers can become very destructive. This is another reason why bad things happen to good people…those brothers of our.
