  • Bad Things Happen To Good People Analysis

    I believe that bad things happen to good people. Better yet, I believe that terrible things happen to the most innocent of people. Nothing bad ever happened to Hitler; the millions of innocent jews he killed did not deserve their gruesome deaths. Orphans as young as children do not deserve a life without a parent to guide them through it. A lot of times I ask myself, Why? Why do things like this happen to good people, why don 't I ever see bad people suffering? A lot of times I turn to God and ask him this rhetorical question which I know will have no answer to.

    Why does God let bad things happen to good people? A question that will be asked until we meet our Father in heaven and get to ask Him directly. I think we need to unpack a few things in attempt to answer that question. First, where did evil come from and when did it begin? Has there always been evil in this world? Did God bring evil into this world or did we? To get a baseline for this question I think we need to establish “bad things” and where it derived from. Secondly, do we have freewill or…

  • Volunteering Reflection
