Tennessee governor on tornadoes: 'The wrath of God...'
ATKINS, Ark. -- Residents in five Southern states rose Wednesday to widespread clusters of destruction caused by an unusually ferocious winter tornado system. At least 54 people were killed and scores more were injured.
"The wrath of God is the only way I can describe it," Gov. Phil Bredesen of Tennessee said after surveying the damage by helicopter. "I'm used to seeing roofs off houses; houses blown over. These houses were down to their foundations, stripped clean."
The governor said 1,000 houses in Tennessee were destroyed. President Bush announced he would head to the state on Friday to view the damage....
America is becoming a "cesspool" likened unto Sodom and Gaomorrha -- and men perceive it not
Proverb 14: 34) Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.
"We" are just like an adulterous woman -- UNFAITHFUL
GOOD has been turned back and every evil way has been exalted
TRUTH has fallen along the wayside and men refuse to stand HER back up
GOD has become a mentally entertaining proposition for so many who only see HIM as the means of fulfillment for their own selfish desires --- Far too many profess THE LORD, YET ***HAVE NO*** RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD "THROUGH" HIS SON
Many have been deceived by teachers who only cater to their ""itching ears"" -- JUST LIKE POLITICIANS DO !!!
GODS WORD SAYS -- There will be suffering in this life and persecution will come -- there is a Hell TO SHUN and a HEAVEN TO GAIN -- there is a Damnable Way and there is THE WAY OF TRUTH -- there is a Broad Way and there is a NARROW WAY --- THE QUESTION IS -- WHAT WILL man SURRENDER himself TO -- JUST WHAT WILL man "LOVE" -- YES, WHAT WILL man SEARCH OUT WITH his Whole Heart ???
"We" have become Masters of "Compromise" and Hellishly "Justificative"
The Church's response to such happenings, [URL=http://www.sermonaudio.com/sermoninfo.asp?sermonID=10505121331]]]The Role of God in Natural Disasters[/URL].
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: The providence of God not only works in the selection of governmental leaders, including the worst of ones such as Nebuchadnezzar, but also in the happenings of nature. What happens is never the fault of "Mother Nature" but of Father God. This includes such tragedies as Hurricane Katrina. There is nothing that happens by chance, even the outcome of the roll of the dice. Everything is under the control of God. While we cannot understand God's infinite purposes with our finite minds. We do have a human responsibility and accountability, while at the same time living under the sovereignty of God.
We should be moved with compassion when tragedies take place but we must have a proper perspective about tragedies....
