Al­low me to give my two cents opin­ion on the sub­ject dis­cussed in the dailies by Kori- na Waibuta and Rev­erend Akuila Yabaki re­gard­ing the state­ment “Nat­u­ral oc­cur­rences such as cy­clones should not be at­trib­uted to God or acts of God” ex­tracted from Rev­erend James Bhag­wan’s ser­mon. We all agree that God is in con­trol and He knows ev­ery­thing that hap­pens in this world. Does this mean that He is the one who or­ches­trates nat­u­ral dis­as­ters? Def­i­nitely not! Read the Book of Job and we will find that God al­lowed Satan to use na­ture’s el­e­ments but not to take away Job’s life. Satan has one aim and that is to de­stroy hu­man­ity be­fore they could re­pent, but God be­ing in con­trol turns the tide and uses nat­u­ral dis­as­ters and other calami­ties in life to give us a wake-up call and get right with Him. Our re­la­tion­ship and stand­ing with God will re­veal where we stand on the ques­tion if nat­u­ral dis­as­ters are an act or judg­ment of God or not.
