If God is so good, why do bad things happen to good people?

Sickness, war accidents, natural disasters, tragedies-they come to the just and the unjust, the Christian and the non-Christian, the moral and the immoral. Yet, if God is so good and all-powerful, why doesn't he just wipe out evil things in this world? The question often arises after any tragedy, but especially when it affects people who you would think should be immune to such things.

In addressing this question, it is important to remember that God originally created the world perfect.

But he also gave man the freedom to obey or disobey. When Adam sinned, death and suffering become an inevitable part of life.

The Answer is Jesus Christ, for he may not calm the storms in our lives, but he will calm your heart during the storm. If you are now experiencing the storms of life, I pray that you seek Jesus Christ, seek and you will find, knock and the door will open.
