To purchase the entire DVD set of the Summit Lecture Series, visit summit.org.When someone has something bad happen in their life, it is not due to their moral evil. Jesus very explicitly taught against that: About this time Jesus was informed that Pilate had murdered some people from Galilee as they were offering sacrifices at the Temple. 2 “Do you think those Galileans were worse sinners than all the other people from Galilee?” Jesus asked. “Is that why they suffered? 3 Not at all!
