Q: Why do tragedies affect “innocent” people?

Ken Ham answers: Since 9/11, people have often asked why God would allow such a terrible tragedy that killed “so many innocent people.”

Now, while I do not in any way want to take away from the grievous nature of these horrible events and the devastating impact on so many families and friends, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind us of one of the realities of this life—that all of us will die one day!

In Luke 13, Jesus gave two examples where people were killed in “tragic” events, and both times He asked the question as to whether the victims were “worse sinners” than others. We read the following:

There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish. Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all other men who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:1–5)

In a modern context, we could take this passage and apply it this way: Those people at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Pennsylvania who were killed by the terrorists—were they worse sinners than others? The answer would be, “No, not at all. But you need to repent!”
