Earthquakes and tsunamis are not caused by "God"

Job knew suffering was not because of mistakes and revenge,
as jesus comfirmed in the gospel.

Love (= acceptance =mercy) is the biggest command, above any incomplete beliefs.

Well, can you prove that god didn't do it?

I mean whose to say that god didn't punish the haiti people?

If we believe that god did kill all those people via an earthquake, we can grow from the learning experience, and bring us closer to god, and thusly, god creating this earthquake, brings us all closer to god, and that's what is best.

God works in mysterious ways.

Look its brought some people closer together raising money for the poorer and the damned by god.

I'm glad I believe that god did this, it allows me to see that he didn't strike down my local city in an extreme horror, but to someone elses country, letting me know I still have a chance to try harder to please him.


It's a growing experience.


Soooo... god kills thousands of people because he wants to bring us closer to him.
Rather like an abusive spouse. "Do you think I like hitting you?!" SLAP SLAP SLAP!!!!


Your post doesn't prove god works in mysterious ways... but the human mind certainly does.

EDIT: I just read your subsequent posts and now I get it, lol. My initial reaction was knee jerk and just goes to show me not to jump to conclusions, lol.

Maybe god allowed himself,
to bring himself closer to him,
which is not judgment,
but functional.

IF god exists he hurts himself for a reason,
so search the reason instead of running away from it.

If TRUTH exist truth hurt itself for a reason,
so search the logical reason instead of running away from it.

Job knew it was not judgment.
Jesus explained us the U-turn of logic.
So why does god through us make a u-turn
from heaven to hell to heaven.
Why ?
first formulate the question,
because the question is partly already the answer.

Not sure I follow... but you make it sound like god is a teenage emo girl that cuts herself.

maybe that teenage girl is a reflection of what really happens,
although god needs to become that teenage girl to allow himself to do that.

So god is in the whole process of the person's life. The pain and fear of the people, and the hope and helping. Is god also in the earth that shifted? Or is god only in the people made of the earth?
