I don't understand this. There are so many verses in the bible which talk about God protecting us like psalm 91 for example. Then why do bad things also happen to christians? It simply cannot be that on the one hand the bible promises these things and then bad things still happen to christians this makes no sense! Imagine you read psalm 91 and you are totally naive and have a child-like faith which the bible encourages and then you take this verse for you and believe that nothing bad will ever happen to you. No matter if the other people around you are hit by bad things you believe that just as psalm 91 says nothing bad will happen to you. But what if it does? What do you do then? Then your faith will be totally shaken and you won't even know what's going on. And I think that as a consequence of this christians don't even really believe in these promises anymore or they somehow find a way to relativize them because this protects their faith in the case that something might happen to them because otherwise it would be even harder to cope with it. But when the bible promises these things then why do they not come true? The bible has to be right. If the bible is wrong then we all have a problem. I just don't get it. Maybe these things only become true when you totally believe in them and all those christians which bad things happen to do not really believe in these promises, maybe this is the explanation? But on the other hand the word of faith christians which are usually into this stuff also become sick. If they didn't become sick then this would prove that it works when you only believe in it enough.
