Why Bad Things Happen

I have been asked, "Why do bad things happen to good people"? My answer was quick and to the point: "There are no good people"

We all fall short and we all sin on a daily basis, so we all need Jesus to speak on our behalf to the Father. God does not see degrees of sin, meaning the 10 Commandments were not written in any particular order. Lying will buy you a ticket to Hell just as quickly as murder.

Man sees some people as better than others, but God does not.
