Is Bad Health A Curse

If a person dies before 70, does it mean that there is something wrong with his spiritual life? The Bible says that we should live to three-score and ten. If not, then what is wrong?

Well, the most difinitive answer to that question is that Jesus died in his 30's. Think about it.

Where does it say there is any guarantees as to how long somone will live? Where does it say we should live to three-score and ten?

Hi; I would just like to add my 2 cents here; sometimes also people die young due to someone else's sin; my late brother was murdered by a man who was drinking. I also have a cousin who lost a young son in Iraq; sin has consequences for everyone, sometimes the innocent too.

Titus 1:7 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began. God has blessed us that abide in Christ with eternal life for our souls. Paul prayed and stayed in hopes that we all prospered even as our souls prosper.

(ii) He prayed this knowing that Christ has taken back ALL power & authority in the earth and that we are no longer debtors to sin & death but unto life. And if we speak to this mountain (of sicken) and tell it to be cast into the sea, and believe in our hearts that it shall be as we speak it, then the sickness shall be cast away from us.

I believe that the scriptures said that man can not abide without the Spirit more than 70 years. But with the Spirit of God I Believe all things are possible; and if you can believe they shall be for you as well?

I think most of the apostles died before they were aged 70.

Ex 15:26. If you will.... then I will put none of these diseases on you.
Deut.28 Promises good health, long life, freedom from enemies and addictions if you follow God.
Eph6:3. Honour your parents....and you will live long on the earth.
Ps. 103.
And many others that tell us if we do right God will bless. That's the norm, but don't put God in a box. He still has the right to decide otherwise.

Many times we have problems which stem from our nations government and others' sins. I've seen that abortions, war, and pollution will affect many people even if some are persoanlly innocent from these activities. Daniel was a righteous man but he was captured with the rest of them.
Achan sinned and they stoned his whole family. Most of them didn't even know what happened but they paid for it.

The 70yrs. isn't referring to christians. We are promised long life. It can be 70, 100, 95... Sin brings death. Not taking care of yourself brings early death.

Randy, no it does not mean if a person dies before 70, that there is something wrong with his spiritual life. It means we live in a decaying world where there is sin and sickness all around us. It means our mortal bodies are subject to sickness because this earth belongs to the price of the power of the air. Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world." Jesus's kingdom is perfect without sickness. This earth is filled with evil and sickness and sin which can reak havoc to the body.
