• Your question is provocative because no one ever asks "Why do bad things happen to bad people?" or "Why do good things happen to good people." The reality is 'Stuff' happens to everyone and if you believe in God you believe in a grand plan that you can't possibly understand. I hate to sound cliche but your ruined life may be just the begining for a much more enriched life with your God or whatever. In death comes life in many forms. God speed...and always know you don't have to go it alone.
  • I believe that bad things happen to good people, not because they are good but because they have a false sense of of what "good" is. Good is not necessarily putting others before yourself. "Good" has to be defined by the individual, and as such to the mouse the cat is evil but to the cat the mouse is simply food. So to be good by someones standards you are not to another. To some always helping others while you are passed by is seen simply as weak not "good". Humility is not debasing yourself until you believe yourself worthless. Humility is being able to see the good others do as well as yourself. Regardless of whether or not a person believes in God. Whether or not they believe in life after death, "Bad" things don't happen to good people. Things happen and a strong, intelligent person will see the possibilities and continue to look and move forward with a good attitude. As others that are weak and expect life to give them things will see themselves as being taken advantage of or having bad things happen to them. Nothing that happens is good or bad it's simply how you observe it and how you move forward. The question we should be asking is not "why do bad things happen to good people?" we should be asking ourselves how to move forward to progress ourselves and those we can influence.
  • it does not mean that bad people never see the worst things........... every one have to bear sunlight,rain, storm equally....
  • It rains upon the just and the unjust- equally.
  • That is not true. It's not true that bad things only happen to the people who help others. Bad things happen to selfish people, too. That's why a lot of the time you hear about people cleaning up their act after something bad happens to them.
  • Based upon your information I would say because they lack humility and inflate the sense of their own "goodness". Their next step will probably be to curse God. Has to come not from observance but from inside.
  • Have you ever heard the expression "Life's a bitch"?
  • There is a misunderstanding that the life style mentioned is any kind of "protection" against bad things happening. It's also true of a bunch of peope praying for a seriously ill person to recover but sometimes they recover and sometimes they don't. If they recover it was only with the help of God and when they don't, they say, "God works in mysterious ways". Unfortunately a belief in God and living a "good life" has no bearing at all in one's life going very well or horribly. There is no "pay back". Unfortunately there is also no "heaven" either.
