A lot of bad things happen to good and bad people.  I really can't believe that there is a God that watches everything we do and punishes us for doing bad things.  I think we all need some kind of religion that encourages us to behave well and treat our fellow man well.  Howevr, I don't think I will ever figure out how or why Jesus died for our sins.  Thanks for your insight....dc

      For purposes of our forum, does Gnostic scripture talk about Jesus dying "for our sins"? Anyone?
