It's normal to question faith or even lash out at God at times like these. Nobody wants to see people die. Well, most people. Being overwhelmed with feelings of doubt, fear or anger is just part of being human.

I don't for a second pretend to know what God's plan is for anyone; I have a hard enough time to understand God's plan for myself. One thing that I know in my heart is that in times of tragedy, we should be reaching out to each other with love and mercy. I believe that this is what God wants us to do.

So I will pray for the victims in Japan. You don't have to, and that's okay. I would simply urge anyone to show compassion to Japan in whatever way makes the most sense to them.

I pledge to stay on topic brother.

Here in south Florida people are clueless! If TSHTF today they would be on their own.

I have attempted my own little survey, and these people are literally clueless!

Just let me get out of here before it goes under the sea!!

Thanks for that info, Vox. My mom finally heard from her brother in Tokyo. He said things there were relatively "normal" ...considering...except for difficulties with telephone service. He had to travel to a friend's house because phone service to his apartment was disrupted. I was not there for the conversation so I couldn't ask for details. All he said was that he was okay where he was and had power, food, and pretty normal conditions. Of course my mom is elderly and has been seriously ill for some time, so I'm not sure if he would have let her know of any hardships or scary details. He certainly did not talk about the nuclear power plants with her.

I hope you stay safe.

As for everyone else and all this talk about God, some of the Japanese are Christians. Most members of my family who are Japanese did convert many years ago to Christianity from the pagan faith of their culture. But I would guess, from what I remember of my short visits there, most Japanese are not Christian. A lot are Buddhist or Shinto or agnostic or atheist. To those of you who are Christian, I ask, does this mean you are not going to pray for these people? That statement saying "I hope they know God" sounded kind of negative. I'm sorry, no, a lot of Japanese probably do not know God, at least not in the same way a traditional western minded Christian envisions God. In this case, then, I would ask, does God know us? I believe he does and will give his people, ALL of his people, the inner strength and resilience to get through the horrible things nature is throwing at us.

Neither a saint nor a sinner can safely play golf in a thunderstorm. Good things and bad things happen to the just and the unjust. That's just the way it goes. Earthquakes are not God's way of smiting the wicked. If the end truly is near, we are all going to have to bend over and kiss our butts goodbye. Today it is earthquakes and tsunamis in Japan...tomorrow possibly Yellowstone blows in the USA. So all the judging and finger pointing (not necessarily in this thread but elsewhere in this forum and on the web at large) and declarations that disaster struck because some country did this or that thing wrong in the eyes if God is just plain...goofy.

Yes there is God, and the divine consciousness is within all of us.

God does not choose between us because God is supremely benevolent.

God does not control us because free will is a gift given to all.

God EXPECTS us to love and cherish each other just as God does us.

In this we have failed...

So, we get little wake up calls. They get louder. Still louder. And LOUDER until his voice can no longer be denied.

All we are expected to do is love one another. Instead, we eat till we die of obesity while starving our Brothers and Sisters in other parts of the world. We drink ourselves into oblivion numbed by our football and pretzels while we allow our governments to mercilessly destroy our Brothers and Sisters for the natural resources of this earth. We idolise tits and ass rather than the indomitable spirit of those who suffer while we turn a blind eye.

You think Japan has it bad? This is just getting started...

Repent.

Final Warning

These disasters are not catastrophes, they are opportunities for the world to come together in Brotherhood.

Step out of your coma.

With Love,

Your Brother

Some people like to rubber neck at car wrecks as well. Others prefer to help the victims, find the cause, and educate people so that another wreck does not occur.

Share your info and updates. I'll share mine. Let the readers decide what is relevant to them.

With Love,

Your Brother

i believe you mean coma....I don't think i'm capable of stepping out of a grammatical device


people are entitled to their beliefs. I was raised Irish Catholic, I went to catholic boarding school....that alone has beaten any scrap of "God Fearing Woman" out of me. I will not lay stock in a hypocritical faith.

Oops, my index finger has a stuttering problem. Sorry


I do not blame you for stepping out of that den of serpents.

Love one another. That is all I am asking.

In the time I've been at ATS I swear I have never seen anyone start a thread this way.

I guess it's getting to that point that it just dosn't matter that much anymore. WTF.

Any way, The only thing that could be worse, in this case of the whole country of Japan. Is if the land mass that is Japan, just sank beneath the waves. It seems it's almost that bad. What is it like, half the population is stranded? Nowhere to go ? No homes, no work, no food, no water. God help 'em. I was pretty bent at the Japaneese when I seen the threads a while back. Showing their traditional whale slaughter. Guess Posiedon
finally found a verdict. Seems almost like karma anyways. I'm just say'in noway was I this psst about it.
To many innocents.

Maybe more people SHOULD be bringing God into this. Not to derail thread, but if you are going to knock down God, in a situation like this, I can not hold my tongue . The original poster was sincere, your post was just hateful.

What I believe does not matter, but lets not knock down peoples faith.

Well let me bring some logic in this thread.

If God exists, this wouldn't be happening.

And to be fair, if what is happening is "the will of God"...

Then of what use is praying?

You god is sick.




Actually this is happening because god exists to test your faith in him and you failed miserably. The people in japan are now in a better place. You think you'd rather be on this earth or in heaven. This tsunami was God's mercy to believers in Japan.

See here's the deal. Many skeptics act all like it's crazy when people think about high elevated places to go in a major flood yet when it happens then everyone does it. That's just what you do. It's like they are afraid of dealing with things. It's like they are mad because you are getting ready when they are not.
