When it comes to disasters like hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the questions of convenience and of the species’ advancement disappear. Few if any people seem to be asking if the lives endangered by the hurricanes are worth saving. Instead, we all want to know how we can help.
Our world has suffered a number of natural disasters recently: two major hurricanes devastated areas of the U.S., and earthquake in Mexico claimed nearly 100 lives, just to name a few. As Christians, these kinds of events can threaten to shake our faith. How are we to interpret them? Is God angry at the world? Is He trying to teach us something? Is He punishing us? These five Christian leaders offer some insight into how to view natural disasters from a biblical perspective. Hopefully these quotes will strengthen your faith and encourage you that God is in control no matter what.
