Why Does God Judge Some People More Harshly Than Others?

Why is it that in the Bible, sometimes God punishes some people severely for their sins, but other people receive no punishment for similar actions?

Responding to a question that was submitted here: Theology for the People: Ask a Question or Suggest a Topic, about why God judges some people more harshly than others in the Bible. Examples of this are with Michal (the wife of David) and Uzzah in 2 Samuel 6, the story of the two prophets in 1 Kings 13, and Ananias and Sapphira in Acts 5.

This principle can be seen in our lives today, where some people do evil things and seem to suffer no consequences, and in some cases succeed as a result, whereas many who endeavor to lead a godly life don't succeed or even suffer. David asked this same question in the Psalms because of what he experienced in his own life.

In this episode, three important considerations are brought up to help understand this dynamic.
