It has been a week since the earthquake with a magnitude of 8.9 shook the land of Fukushima in Japan. The strong earthquake has been followed by a tsunami that wiped off almost the entire place. Thousands of lives have been lost and numerous infrastructures have been destroyed. These followed by the nuclear crisis brought about by the explosion of one of the reactors in the nuclear plant in Fukushima that also killed people.
Whenever calamities happen, people tend to blame everything to GOD.
In an article written by Bro. Eli Soriano entitled, Its Not God’s Fault; Blame the Hypocrites! it says;
“If only they are using their power to think, their allegation that “if there is a God, why is he permitting these things to happen?”, they should have realized the truth that there are things that happen on earth beyond the control of all humanity; proving that somebody more powerful than man is doing such thing. Their criticism, if investigated, will compel them to believe in the existence of God.
Although not all catastrophes are acts of God; there are those caused by the recklessness and irresponsibility of men (Rev. 11:8)”
“And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.”

With all the calamities, destructions, struggles and hardship in our lives in this world, why do you think humanity was able to survive and move forward?
It is because there is GOD, the creator of the universe. GOD loves all the people that HE created.
“We love him, because he first loved us.” – 1 John 4:19
Thanks and glory be to the loving GOD forever and ever!
