There were some present at that very time who told him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices.  And he answered them, "Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans, because they suffered thus?  I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.  Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Silo'am fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who  dwelt in Jerusalem?  I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish."       - Luke 13:1-5
