Divine Disaster Plan

Daniel Propson on Learning the Difference Between Judgment & Mercy

Every so often a high-profile Christian will explain a natural disaster like last year’s hurricanes in the following way: The victims were sinning, so God sent down punishment upon them. It is not—in most cases—particularly wise or discerning men who make such comments, and most rational people (Christian or otherwise) dismiss this explanation as absurd. Sending such punishment upon groups of people is the work of a wrathful God, and surely God is not wrathful.
