Common Misconceptions: Bad things happen to Good People?

                                                                  Q. Part 1: Right now I don't know if I believe in God or not. I got this feeling because of recent Tsunami devastations. I didn't quite understand how God/nature can destroy so many innocent lives when they didn't do any bad karma, even if there might be few people who had done bad karma. I also couldn't understand how so many people were destined to die at the same time even though they didn't have anything in common.

                                                                  Q. Even after doing lot of pious activities, devotional services one still undergoes lot of suffering? Why?
                                                                  What is the solution? Good people go through bad things and Bad people go through good things? Why?

                                                                  Q. I like to believe that God exists, but sometimes things happen in my life which make me believe otherwise. Please help me.

                                                                  Life is full of experiences and challenges which test our faith and bear potential to strengthen it.  For doubt to arise as you describe is not uncommon. But it is resolvable by reflecting upon the conception of God expressed in Bhagavad-gita, which will likely result in an adjustment of what conception of God we presently ascribe to.
