There has been much confusion through the years, especially in religious circles, about whether God sends bad things on good people to teach them something. You have probably heard someone say: “Well you know the Bible says,” and they quoted something that was foreign to the Bible. How many times have you heard somebody say, “God will not put more on you than you can stand?” Many times no doubt, but that statement is not in the Bible. It is what they heard someone say they
thought someone heard that the Bible said.
