Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

Brock worked hard to support his family. And when his career took off, he felt like he had life by the tail—until the day the car he was in was struck by a large truck. In an instant, his life changed dramatically, leaving him to wonder why bad things happen to good people.

In his frustration and anger, Brock sought to understand. He’d never wanted to be poor. He’d worked hard to build a successful career, and to have it taken away—by someone who chose to text and drive—was hard.

After questioning God, Brock became a changed man. The accident robbed him of his financial security and a career he loved, but it softened him. His relationship with Jesus Christ and his compassion for the suffering of others grew.

Brock sees the evidence of God’s love for him not in monetary success or in the good or bad things that happen, but in his children’s love and his wife’s kindness. Brock’s hope in Christ teaches him there are good things to come.

Why do you think God allows bad things to happen to good people?

There are no "Good" people, the question isn't "Why do bad things happen to good people?" But "Why do good things happen to bad people?" Because God is Merciful.

But as God has Declared in His Inspired, Infallible, and inerrant Word :

Genesis 6:5 KJV : "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."

Genesis 8:21 KJV : "And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done."

Ecclesiastes 7:20 KJV : "For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not."

Job 14:4 KJV : "Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? Not one."

Psalm 14:2-3 KJV : "The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3. They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one."

Psalm 58:3 KJV : "The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies."

Job 15:14 KJV : "What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous?"

Sometimes I just wonder "was that really necessary? Was there no other way I could learn this lesson than go through this trial?" I wish there was a clear-cut answer to that question.

As it is written:

“There is no one righteous, not even one;
there is no one who understands;
    there is no one who seeks God.
All have turned away,
    they have together become worthless;
there is no one who does good,
    not even one.”

– Romans 3:10-12

Some people including myself get touched by God and just dismiss it as luck or science or normal chance. Some people need a heaven sent hammer to the head to wake up.

Beautiful and heart wrenching. But Tbh, No One should go bankrupt because of 'Vis Major' accidents like this. Beautiful, inspiring as always..just frustrating that predatory insurance companies make billions while wonderful people like this have thier livelihoods stolen from them
