I don't believe you can point to chapter and verse that proclaims Katrina to have been Divine Judgement upon the US for sin.

In fact, when one does examine the Biblical accounts of actual judgement, it is quite clear and quite drastic.

Speculation that this was God's doing is just that: Speculation.

The last 2 (3 if you count Iran) major "acts of God" have devastated radical muslim populations.  Katrina killed less than a thousand, so I doubt you could call that "God's wrath".  If one were very religeous and believed in "Gods Wrath", I dont think it takes a rocket scientist to know what side he's on.

There were many accounts of people (Al Querda maybe) saying that Private? Katrina had joined the ranks and they were estatic of the "judgement" that aLLAH was doling out.

First off According to your definition a hindu who prays to his "god" Krishna or whoever, if he does it in arabic then he is praying to "Allah" But is his "allah"(god) the same  as ours? clearly no. So then just because A Muslim prays to his "Allah" does'nt mean he is praying to the christian or Jewish God named YHVH. The four symbols transliterated from the Hebrew alphabet  sounding out the word "YAH-VEH." The Muslim prays to a moon god who demands animal sacrifices. He prays to a god who demands blood and submission. Just cause Muhammud stole some bible stories (got them all completely wrong BTW) then tucked them into his Quran does'nt mean it's the same god. He took some Jewish & Christian stories then melded them with Arabic paganism (Walking about the Kabaa etc.) then called it a religion. But in my book  (and all jews and christians) it's not the same "God" they are talking about it's a false god of the moon and pagan myth. Clear enough?

Now that he has clarified what he meant, (it wasn't clear that he meant muslim extremists) I have to agree.

If the wrath of Allah at his worst can only kill 1,000 Americans, then the muslim extremist version of Allah is a big pussy.

I said it.

Same thing as the Tsunami.

So, if Katrina was sent to punish us, wouldn't it hold true that the same 'God' (there is only one TRUE God, the Living God, and Allah sure isn't it) sent the Tsunami, the earthquake, etc which punished his OWN people FAR worse than Katrina did to us.

My sister believes that if people have enough faith, they can stop hurricanes.
If your church had convinced you that all you gotta do to stop a hurricane is just believe hard enough, and then the hurricane still comes, what are you going to feel?  Hundreds of people died because you didn't have enough faith?
Completely ridiculous.  Churches like that disgust people who MIGHT be going to church if there was a right church.




You can always ask for Him to be merciful . . . but too many people forget that He has determined how things work around here and He won't alter things for your convenience.  Because of her faith that hurricane may have been diverted.  But it was going to hit somewhere . . . there comes a time to ask that you are given adversity because you can handle it . . . so that others might not have to face it.  Ask for His help in facing the coming trial.  But the trial must come . . . one way or another.  He won't change the laws he has made for nature on this world.

If Katrina was God's judgement on the US and it killed a measly 1,000 folks . . .

What in the hell do they call the US Marines?

The Devil Dogs have been kicking their asses in large batches for quite a while now . . .

Along with the USAF, the Army , and the rest of the Navy.

It's amazing.  We kick their asses back into the Stone Age, beat the shit out of the largest army in the Middle East, punch through Baghdad like shit through a goose, kick the ass out of shitloads of their guys, bomb their cities into rubble, take over their countries, fuck their women, and general bitchslap them in every engagement . . . but the hurricane was God's wrath upon us.

Pretty shitty God if you ask my opinion.

Indeed.

Tens of thousands died in that earthquake, plus the tsunami killed hundreds of thousands, plus other recent earthquakes in the region have killed tens of thousands....

So if the number of people killed in a natural disaster is an indicator of God's wrath, who is God really pissed off at?

As Eric Idle once said: "God gave us this land, and He also gave us these tanks and machine guns, so **** off!"

It is an utterly silly thing for the terrorist sympathizers to say, but when a person embraces evil and wants to become judge jury and executioner on anyone they don't like, it shouldn't be a suprise to us that they try to point to a darn hurricane as justification for their evil. Evil makes people really really stupid.

I for one am rather amazed that hurricane Rita didn't hit with the cat 5 -4 force that was originally expected.  I have a feeling that prayer may help.  (Or the russians and japanese didn't put enough energy into their hurricane manufacturing machine.)

There is solid Biblical teaching on prayer effecting world events, natural disasters, and individual lives.

Jesus Himself said that nothing is impossible to those that believe. He also said, however, that it rains on the just and the unjust.

The Bible teaches that men ought always to pray and not to faint, and that God answers those prayers, but it does not say that those prayers are always answered in the affirmative and that nothing can bad can happen to good people.



Texas got spared the worst of Rita because of a high pressure area sitting right over our heads.  Whether God put that high pressure area there is up for debate, I suppose,



It could be a natural thing, or it could have been ordained by God. Only the Divine Society knows. We are left to guess and have faith.



Why should any Christian take the responsibility upon themselves of trying to be God?



No Christian with any sound grounding in the Bible takes it upon themselves to "be God". They do, however, pray, fast, and seek His blessings and help in all sorts of situations. Earnest and passionate prayer has saved nations before and spared them from all sorts of horror.

In the War of 1812, for instance, as the Brittish marched from burning Washington DC, they were hit by a tremendous storm and tornadoes touched down right in the middle of Brittish troops, scattering them and demoralizing them.

What could have been the defeat of our nation was turned into victory.

Somebody was praying over that one.



That IS the other half of the story.  My sister is under the impression that the Bible commands her to be Christ, instead of interpreting the verse as a statement that she is Christ's.



First John chapter 2 commands that those who claim to know Christ ought to walk just as He walked. Christians are indeed called to be Christ to the world, meaning that we are to be as kind, giving, loving, forgiving, patient, and selfless as He is. That does not mean, however, that we can walk on water and calm storms.



You may interpret this as Christian bashing.  Sadly, sometimes the church does it to themselves, at times.



Christians are often easily misguided. False teachings and ideas masked in a Christian-like theme are pandemic these days. The folks that fall into these excesses, however, are not bad Christians or bad people, merely weak in their knowledge of scripture and proper doctrine.

If she is truly one of God's children, then God will lead her into a better understanding of these things, and will teach her that hurricanes don't happen because she didn't pray hard enough.

There are things that could be changed if people sought God more and with more passion, and there are very real consequences to them, but I don't believe the hurricane falls into that category. Jesus and the Apostles were on a boat in the middle of a gale, but God wasn't angry because Jesus was getting some much needed rest.

Sometimes stuff just happens.
