I use to be one of those people who doubted my faith when “bad things were happening to good people.”  I realized instead of pulling away from my faith, I should come closer.  Once I started coming closer, when bad things were happening was when I realized that they weren’t so bad after all.

Do you often wonder why bad things happen to good people?

I remember hearing one of my friends used to cry for this when her friend just passed away. She is a faithful Christian, and she doubted God on that. She wondered why a good person would die even she has been praying and faithful to God. Her friends who are also Christians told her not to doubt God, as God always has plans for everyone. We should just keep praying and believing in God.

I am not a Christian, but I believe there’s a reason for everything. Perhaps it might seem to be bad now, it is actually not that bad. There might be a lesson for it, or it’s just that we haven’t really see the good things beyond it.

I know Buddhism believes in Karma, not only the cause and effect in this life, but it might be the cause from the previous lives. I still haven’t believe in this yet, but this can sometimes explain why. I believe in the cause and effect in this life, and I think there might be a lesson for us to learn while we are in a bad situation. I also just read a book, “It could have been worse”.

When I was a child, elders used to inculcate into my mind that bad things happened to good people because it detests their faith. God never gives challenges to a certain individual if they can’t handle it. At first, I was skeptical and not until I find possible answers to problems. From then on, I always have a little faith within me and believed in God.

Sorry to interrupt the discussion but GOOD and BAD are quite relative. I doesn’t matter how you define good / bad. What matters is – how GOD defines it.

I remember a story (it will make everything clear) – a man met GOD and asked – I have never thought bad about anyone. And my neighbour is a corrupt man. Yet, I see him richer and myself so poor that I cannot even afford a show. There are multiple thorns punched in my feet right now. Why are you so partial?

GOD humbly replied – You know what was fate? Your neighbour was supposed to be the Mayor of the place and rule many. Due to his bad actions recently, I made him only a rich man  and that’s it. However, your case is different. You were supposed to be crucified but looking at your good deeds, I reduced the effect and made some thorns pierce through your feet. I know you did not like my verdict but I had to balance your deadly fate with positivity of your goodness. Slowly and gradually I shall reverse this bad time for you, just travel on the same spiritual path which you are on right now.

Hope the story made everything clear. If it did not, read one more.

An atheist once reached a temple and saw the GOD’s statue there. He said – you are fortunate. You are just standing here, still the world bows before you. I work for the day and night still get loathed. Why this imbalance.

GOD laughed at the innocence. GOD appreciates innocence. He instructed a heavely voice: Tomorrow morning 00:00 hours, you shall be at my position fr 24 hours and  I shall be away from here making you the master. Are you ready?

The atheist nodded.

GOD said – then there is a condition: Keep your mouth shut. I shall meet you tomorrow at 23:59 hours to discuss what you did.

The atheist was excited. After all, he will be GOD next day.

Next day, the atheist went inside the statue as an automatic arrangement. He saw a businessman coming there for some business idea. He said – my vehicle of material is punctured. Please help me out.

The atheist saw that he mistakenly dropped his wallet. A begger came there and offered a coin to GOD. He saw that wallet and took it as GOD’s grace and sat down there.

Some time passed and a sailer came there hoping for a safe journey. Suddenly, the business came back and accused sailor  of stealing his wallet. The police was about to arrest the sailor BUT…

The atheist (who could not tolerate the injustice) immediately spoke out: He isn’t the thief. That begger is thief. Let him go.

The statement was atheist was same as GOD’s own witness, who will go against? The begger was arrested and sailor set free to go.

That night, atheist met GOD and narrated everything. GOD replied – You created a problem. I clearly told you to keep your mouth shut. Everything was preplanned. That business man was actually a smuggler and demanding my help in his fraud business. That begger was a honest hardworking man. The coin which he offered was his hard earned money for the day. If he gets the businessman’s money, he will put it at right way. I do not see anything wrong in he taking the wallet. The sailor was supposed to die today. The only way to avoid this is: avoiding his journey from happening. So, I planned to have him arrested. (That sailor is dead now) Everything was as per plan till you violated the condition and failed to keep your mouth shut. Now, can you provide a solution to the problem which you created?

My Conclusion: We do see bad things happening against good people because we do not know what GOD preplanned for them.

If we stop to think a little bit we will realize when bad things happen to us its not because we are sinners or because God doesn’t love us, the main reason is for us to realize that God is the one who controls our lives and that he puts us in situations so that he can test our faith and see if we can trust him in issues that may come up in our lives, so that he can receive all the glory.

Shavkat, look around you, everything you see was created by the word of God. This word is Jesus. John 1:1-. Even today and forever we continue to live by this word. That is why if one believes and prays in this name miracles happen.

Everyone thinks he is good .Bad things happen to everyone just like good things happen to everyone.
When something bad happen to us we start thinking why me?
But if we look around we will find many people suffering from one problem or another.

Good and bad both of these are a part of everyone’s life. What I feel is God gives suffering to all. But his love ans support remains with people who are who are true to self and to others.

The kind of suffering that people undergo greatly varies and itis greatly kept under control by having dep faith in the Almighty.
