  • I do not think this always happens...

  • This is not true, I have seen bastards die young, and the good live a long good life... Being selectively selective of lives you acknowledge does not make you right, or BILLY right for that matter. He is only looking at the few he knew, rather than looking at many that do not fall under this category.

  • That's a blanket statement.

  • I thought about that when my Mom passed away at 58. I was so angry, she never hurt anyone, she was a beautiful person inside and out, she died a horribly painful death. The only thing that helps me deal with it is knowing she was needed somewhere else because of how wonderful she was. Earth is just a stopping point on our journey and hopefully someday I will see her again, happy, healthy and at peace..

  • good answer mrsleftlane.

  • Beatiful, Mrsleftlane!

    OP - that is not always the way it is. GOD doesn't play favorites. Sometimes it simply is what it is.

  • Because god has nothing to do with. Life is completely democratic. The good die and the bad die. Some children are born with cancer and lukeimia. Some are born normal. It's the luck of the draw.

  • Maybe God is giving the "bad" chances to choose the right...He is just.

  • Only God or the Universe (depending on what you beleive) knows the answer to this. I don't even try to understand.
