Were They Worse Sinners?

To read the Bible in a year, read Luke 13.1-21.
Some people told Jesus what Pilate had done to the Galileans, killing them while they sacrificed to God (Luke 13:1). Did they report with the implication that those Galileans were worse sinners than Galileans who had not suffered the same fate? It sounds like it from the response of Jesus, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (vv. 2, 3). He then mentioned another incident from which people were concluding the same thing, but Jesus again refuted that thinking (vv. 4, 5). However, He said the same thing that repentance applied to everyone then living, and since He made a universal principle of it, we must say that it applies to us also, and that is, we must repent, otherwise we will perish.
Do you want to perish? If not, you know what to do.
