Be you Christian or Jew,are you to blame for the evil that befalls you?
This is a serious question prompted by my reading of the scriptures.
Throughout the OT/Tanakh the destructions,wars etc that the Hebrews face is caused by their own sin,their own transgression of God's covenants and
their own lack of faith.
There are countless verses on this matter.For example,in Joshua Ch 7,just one man's sin brought disaster to 1000's people.
So,does this mean that an unbelievers sin has no effect on a believer?
The abundance of evidence tells us,yes.Even if some wicked/evil event touches a believers life,it is because he/she or another believer has sinned,not
because the perpatrator is a sinner
Does this also mean that,even though the scriptures are to be spread throughout the world,that maybe those of the Jewish and Christian faiths should
spend more time worrying about their own followers than worrying about the sins and evils committed by non-believers??
