I don't think God's political...He's moral....

And neither God nor man will stop Mother Nature from her work. There is no judgement on the matter.

Don’t forget the tsunami threatening Hawaii and today’s earthquake in the LA area (mirroring the earthquake in BC that started the tsunami.)

God has given us the sun and moon and stars and trees and spring rain. He created all of this. We get the parts we like and the parts we don’t. It’s an all or nothing deal.

Are you nuts? What, are you expecting the UN building to get blown away? Go read a conspiracy book or watch a documentary on Bigfoot...those of us sitting in the path of this hurricane are not interested in karma...i highly doubt God has the UN on his mind....

God often has intervened in Nature’s work, i.e. parting the sea, calming the storm while on the boat, winds that brought the quail as meat for the Israelites, hail and brimstone on Soddom...etc.. The mastery of God over nature is axiomatic for Christians and Jews. There is no doubt Sandy is God’s permitted will.

Bravo. From a sermon from my pastor in the wake of a comment on the Xenia 1974 tornado (”Look what God did to Xenia”):

“God created nature but He does not control it. Nature follows it’s own rules.”

God in His sovreign will allows things to happen. He allows what He does and who do we as mere mortals try to rationalize what He does and the purposes. Could Sandy be a wake up call of sorts from above? Its very possible.

It seems sometimes that those that believe the most in the Creator are the ones that make him out to be really stupid.

He runs a CAT1 storm into the U.S. to teach us a lesson? In what, making sure the storm drains are clear in front of your house?

I think he has better things to do.

It will be interesting when we find out how much of it was a choice. That we limited ourselves and didn’t celebrate all of it.

Entirely too Calvinistic a reading and I would just bet the other day you were down on Mourdock, the Republican candidate for Senator from Indiana.

He's pretty Calvinistic you know ~ and so are you ~ INCREDIBLE.

When Matthew refers to rain, he's really saying that anyone inside a field is affected by the field. What he didn't say, but which is really Calvinistic, is there are those who are OUTSIDE THE FIELD ~ and you can recognize them (the truly saved) by their behavior. On the other hand Matthew is also saying that rain usually doesn't make decisions on who to drop on, but if you think about it Matthew didn't have the tools at hand to test the hypothesis.

So, which is it ~ is Matthew speaking as a scientist, a climatologist, or maybe as a religious commenter and teacher?

So many questions; so little time!

The reprobate mind given by God in Romans 1 is one of the things imparted by God on all ungodliness and unrighteousness to a society under judgment, making no note of political affiliation. You can see that in the anger and hatred of those responding here.

It is difficult to, once having delivered the message of judgment, to go and sit under a gourd and see what the society will do. Be patient. You have fulfilled your responsibility. Others have endured the anger and wrath of those who have been warned.

Ordinarily God works in ordinary ways. But He is still in them. I have no doubt that God will be at work in even extraordinary ways during this storm...there will be the miracles of survival afterwards as there almost always is. Many will experience the power of Nature and Nature’s God. God will be shown I am confident.
But, can you defend your position that ordinary nature is outside of the mastery of God?

This is a perfect example of the irrationality of religion. What evidence is there that this is some kind of punishment and not just a natural occurrence.

If we were under judgement the whole country would be destroyed. I suspect Sandy will be worse for Obama than anything else.

Opinions may vary, but I seriously doubt that a low Cat-1 (and weakening) storm is indicative of the wrath of the Creator. Just sayin’...

IMHO when God judges us, the judgment will be far far harsher than Sandy. Sandy wont be fun but I don't believe it will be anywhere near as bad as the media is hyping. For those in the path good luck. Prayers up.

Given that Waffle House only closes for a Cat II or greater, the theological implications would staggering.
