Why do bad things happen to people?
Could it be because we have wronged God in some way and this is his punishment to us?
Funny how some folks,like Pat Robertson,feel that the people in Haiti some how deserved this earth quake because back when the French owned their country the people decided to make a pact with the Devil that if the France went away so they would make God go away.
You know back in the time of Jesus people believed if you had some issue be it physical or mental,either you or your parents were to blame.It was God way of punishing you for the ills of family members.
Now I don't know about you but I feel God is loving and kind and although we probably get him upset from time to time I do not believe he is out to get us.
It's to bad a person who professes to be a man of God would think so narrowly about our creator that he would send fire and brimstone down on us for a so called pact made by an ancestor with the evil one,hundreds of years ago.
God made us each who we are and as such does not go out of his way to punish an entire population because of the wrong doing of some.
We are not placed on this earth to be anymore then who we are and we are asked by God to love one another has he loves us.If he loves us why would he want to destroy us? Would it be to teach our fore fathers a lesson? Does this father want his children shaking in their shoes every time they do something stupid? This makes no sense to me at all.
I believe that Mother Nature is who she is and the world ebbs and flows because God set it into motion many millions of years ago.In its time,like in our own,it will end.
We have catastrophes on this planet to give us the opportunity to make good on helping each other.We are here to make thing better,not worse and in most cases we try to.
The United States is one of the most generous countries in the world and I think most of us believe we need to help others.
Now if Pat Robertson wants to take anything away from this disaster it should be that most Americans are at their best when others are at their worse. We love to roll up our sleeves and pitch in.
We're there for the under dogs of the world no matter which country they belong to.
