    “Surely the reason Christ said, ‘Father, forgive them,’ was because even in that terrible hour He knew that this was the message He had come through all eternity to deliver.”
    —Elder Jeffrey R. Holland

Five Scriptures That Will Help You Get through Almost Anything

In this month’s New Era, John Bytheway offers scriptural answers to the question “Why do bad things happen to good people?” The article is called “Five Scriptures That Will Help You Get through Almost Anything,” and here is the list:

  1. We Know That God Loves His Children! (1 Nephi 11:17)
  2. We Know That God Allows Evil to Exist in the World (Moses 7:26–33)
  3. Our Work Is Not Finished! (Alma 14:13)
  4. The Atonement Is Not Just for Sinners (Alma 7:11–12)
  5. One Day, the Lord Will Reveal All Things (D&C 101:32–36)

Read the full article, and see whether you agree with his interpretations of these scriptures and his arguments regarding how they answer the question posed above. It’s a different sort of article for the New Era—it’s long, dense, and chock-full of additional scriptural references. In any event, it’s well worth the read.
