Why do bad/good things happen to good/bad people?

Why-Do-Bad-Things-Happen-to-Good-People1-930x300Thesis: Bad things happen to bad people, good things happen to good people (according to Job’s friends, Pharisees, & prosperity preachers…& those who believe in karma).

Antithesis: Good things happen to bad people, and bad things happen to good people (according to Job, Jonah, and King Solomon) (the problem of evil & suffering).

Synthesis: God loves both the same, so bad/good things happen to good/bad people (according to Jesus, Paul, and just all throughout Scripture…this is the Gospel…love despite circumstances…).

Unfortunately, that answer doesn’t satisfy everyone. See the discussion that followed in this Facebook thread.
