Did you know that the question was given to Jesus, a question we are famiilar with today which goes something like this, "Why would a just God let a
child die? Or let someone be born blind, or be born with XXXXX defects" or what have you.
This person, asking this question, thinks that all the people in the Special Olympics are worthless, they wouldn't want to be them, that's why they
point to them and say "OMG, God is horrible, look at that FREAK!"
Here's what Jesus had to say when confronted with that Question:
Luke 13 There were present at that season some that told him of the Galilaeans, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.
2 And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things?
3 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
4 Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem?
5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.
6 He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.
7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why
cumbereth it the ground?
8 And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:
9 And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.
What is Jesus saying here about "sinners" and the people who point to them and say, "look, bad things happen to bad people?" But not only that,
because Jesus says more.
He clearly says, that these things happen to us all, which clearly means that all life has worth, no matter how unfortunate they may appear.
And Jesus concludes with the parable, which goes on to show that perhaps a person seems unfruitful now but through God, may yet prove more fruitful
than yourself who pities them and curses God for their sake.
John 9 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
Look, again, the question of sin, or misfortune. A man born blind, why was he blind? Was it because of sin?
No, he was born blind "but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
Abortionists, Liberals, Democrats, Godless heathens, Atheists, they all use these poor unfortunate persons as evidence that God is cruel and
non-existent, and that not all life is worth living.
They are the very mouths of Satan himself.
