10 Questions That Every Intelligent Christian Must Answer, Question 6: Why do bad things happen to good people?

From the transcript:
That makes no sense. You have created an exotic excuse on God's behalf to rationalize it.

No sense? There is no possibility that an infinite God may have purposes completely beyond you? This lack of intellectual humility may be why it makes no sense to you.

But, I know this has been an answer to a previous question, but it applies here as well. Which good people are you referring to?
For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, 10 as it is written:

"None is righteous, no, not one;
11 no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one."
13"Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive."
"The venom of asps is under their lips."
14 "Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness."
15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery,
17 and the way of peace they have not known."
18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."

19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.

Romans 3:9b-20
