These Natural Disasters? You pays your money and you takes your choice.

During this election cycle, we will be talking about the big natural disasters.  And, as usual we all have our theories.

The environmentalists believe the big storms are a result of humanly caused climate change.

The followers of the Bible believe natural disasters are a result of abandoning God. 2 Chronicles 15:2, "God will stick with you as long as you stick with him. . . but if you leave him he’ll leave you." When God removes His protection, we are at the mercy of the wrathful gods.

Finally, there are those who believe disasters are a part of natural cycles seen from the beginning of time.

If we believe natural disasters are man made, we will have to eventually follow the Greenies in some of their solutions.

If we believe natural disasters are supernaturally caused, the Church will have to go all out to bring people to God.

If we believe disasters are just inevitable cycles of nature then we will have to work on how and where we build.
