I Peter 3:13-14
However, we know from personal experience and other verses in the Bible (Habakkuk 1:4, 13; Hebrews 11:37) that bad things do happen to good people.
Yes, bad things can and do happen to Christians.
The promises to Christians are in the future tense (“There shall no evil happen to the just”; “he shall not be visited with evil”). The Bible never says that bad things don’t happen to Christians, but that they shall not (in the future). Someday this will be true; those who know Christ will spend an eternity in Heaven where nothing bad will happen to them. However, for the present, bad things still happen to us as Christians.
