2006.09 Hurricanes—Out of Control?

Article Summary:
Natural disasters like Katrina stagger humanity with destruction, suffering, and death. Does an all-powerful, loving God intentionally send hurricanes and earthquakes? The God who “hurled a great wind on the sea” to drive Jonah to repentance controls all creation—from sparrow deaths, to storm paths, to rulers’ rise and fall. Hurricanes are God’s “merciful megaphones” to get man’s attention. The crucial message of every calamity is “Repent and follow Christ.”

And there arose a fierce gale of wind, and the waves were breaking over the boat so much that the boat was already filling up. And He Himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” And being aroused, He rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Hush, be still.” And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. And He said to them, “Why are you so timid? How is it that you have no faith?” And they became very much afraid and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey Him?” (Mark 4:37-41)
