Why do bad things happen? Well, when God created the world the world was good. Genesis 1:10 God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together He called Seas. And God saw that it was good. Now we know God is perfect so He wouldn’t call something good unless it was perfect. But when Adam and Eve sinned (Genesis 3)their world wasn’t perfect anymore and pain, sin, and death came. This is why bad things happen. Don’t blame God, God made us a perfect world to live in. Sin corrupts.
