    Whatever you do, avoid blaming our Creator for any natural disaster. He is no more responsible than you are. He only permitted this, just as he allowed 20 million people to lose their lives in World War I; 55 million in the Second World War; 100 million in the Spanish flu pandemic of 1919. He did not cause any of these catastrophic events.

    This will continue until he feels it is time to intervene in the affairs of men, as he did 4,500 years in the days of Noah.

    1 John 5:19 tells us that "the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one," and when He decides that Satan has had enough time to demonstrate his inability to rule this present world, it will be time to give the Devil the old heave-ho. Then the promises of Rev. 21 can be brought to fruition, and obedient ones can be restored to perfection, and receive everlasting life.

    Much better than the alternative, n'est-ce pas? Imagine being there to welcome back to human life in a gorgeous paradise all those millions, along with our own lost loved ones.

    Because when god created mankind with his omnipotence, and full knowledge of the past, present, and future, he decided that on that day, 3/22/14, these people would be killed via mudslide.

    Or he doesn't exist and it was an act of nature.

  • You think a God who is willing to flood the whole world and let nearly everyone drown just to make a point is going to give a crap about a mudslide?

    If God was real, He'd be a jerk.

    To find out why God allows suffering, we need to think back to the time when suffering began.

    That's kinda stupid. If you walk out in front of a car, you will probably die, and God gave us the knowledge to know when and where it is dangerous to live, and if you build a house where you are warned about the potential of mud slides, you put yourself in harm's way- don't blame that on God!

    Ask him, but if he really did do it? - then possibly he was chastising

    Washington etc

    God chastises those he loves.

    But you probably don't believe in God anyway.
