Why Does God Allow Disasters and Calamities?

Pray for those in the path of Hurricane Irma

Can’t ignore this big hurricane heading towards Florida though I’m at the other side of the United States well away from this storm.

I’m praying for the Lord’s grace to the people who will be in the storm’s path.

I think we all should pray.

Why Does God Allow Disasters and Calamities?[1]

INTRODUCTION:
When the water came, I was frightened,” recalled Sanga, 12 of the tsunamis that struck in late December. “We ran, and our home is gone.”
“From Thailand to Somalia, more than 150,000 people died in the tsunamis. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) first estimated children made up one third of the death toll. But…that percentage, if anything, might be too low. Children are much less able to run away, fight the water, hold onto or climb a tree…the youngest were simply unable to. While some children scaled a mango tree, evading the torrent, half the group [from an orphanage]—mostly babies and toddlers—did not make it.~ “The Most Vunerable Victims.” January 12, 2005, CNN.com.

When this event occurred, many questions transpired

  • Why did this happened?
  • Why so much destruction?
  • Why is there so much suffering?
  • Why were thousands of people affected?
  • Why were children and babies swept away from the arms of their mother?
  • Was Satan involved?
  • In the Book of Job, we learn that Job’s children were killed by a wind that collapsed the roof of the house & fire from heaven came down and killed Job’s servants and sheep.
  • Scripture states that Satan was involved (Job 1:6-12; 13-22)

PURPOSE:

  • We will cover the wrong views given from non-Christians, the wrong views given by Christians, the biblical response, and the big Why question people have.
  • I am going over the topic concerning natural disaster so that you know the Bible’s explanation concerning it.
