No, Christians aren't in denial about God causing earthquakes. What is wrong is to say God caused earthquakes with malicious intent. Earthquake and other disasters are the result of a universe that has become corrupted. That is, trouble, life and sorrow as we know, be it caused by mankind or through national disasters, are present as a symptom/consequence of a fallen world (a world where evil entered after the fall of man). God uses earthquakes and yes, even causes them for the purpose of judgement, grabbing our attention, or showing His power. No Christian will deny that. it is true that's unsettling to think that God allowed/ordained the major earthquakes we know of, like what happened in Japan, or in Italy. I dont' have the answers as to why these were allowed, but I can't say that every single earthquake that has ever occurred in human history was the result of punishment or God's wraith. I can't say that because that would be me assuming things about God, presuming him. Yes, God has used earthquakes as form of judgement, but that's not with ALL earthquakes. For the most part I believe, earthquakes and other disasters are the biological process of this universe, brought on, like I said, as the result of a fallen world. Now, Being that this question wasn't sincere but more of a rhetorical backlash against God, i would say that instead of venting all your anger at God based on the things you've heard on TV and in media, and based on some limited knowledge you have of the Bible, I would say you should read the Bible yourself and as God for guidance -- don't just slander him and write him off. There's more to God than what you've seen or what you perceive, and he's not some evil capricious being up there just slashing people left and right. If that's what you think, you're dead wrong. God is much more that that. He's a loving God who is also a God of justice, one that loves you so much, even if you hate him. He died for you, you know.
