That was my thought too, when the Islamists said we "deserved" it because of our infidel ways.

When someone makes a statement like that about Haiti, it just gives the left more ammunition to attack Christianity.

The death toll could be as high as 300,000. Thank heavens for US aid, my prayers are with the victims and their families. I hope those waiting for rescue can hang on a little longer.

There's a BIG difference between a terrorist attack and a natural disaster. It takes men to create a terrorist attack. No men are involved in causing a natural disaster.

Yea, three pages later you were right
But back to my point, waitasec, have you heard of Korah's rebellion, when God used an earthquake to take out Korah and a band of rebels? It has happened.

I think God does allow for bad things to happen to wake up people. Sometimes its the only answer.

There are Christians on Haiti, what are you on about? Lots of voodoo too though, demonic spirits am I false to assert this?

Joking aside, do you feel God's Hand was in it (yes, or no would be great).

Crime ran rampant in New Orleans - Hurricane Katrina.
I'm sure there are many more examples and now Haiti.

It at least makes you think.
Very nice. I have to agree here. God held back on Sodom and Gamorrah for a time because there were still righteous left...then he brought his holy wrath upon them. In cases like these even the righteous may have to suffer. God's Grace is sufficent for all, despite our physical suffering. Paul's affliction was never taken away, yet the Lord delivered gentiles from theirs at times.

The bible is pretty clear. Satan is the prince of the air and because of sin allowed to manipulate the world. So God allowed this to happen but in no way caused it. Scripture proof is when Jesus was out on the sea and the storm came and Jesus calmed it Mark 4:35-41. 39 is the key verse here. Jesus rebuked the wind. Had God been the cause of the storm in life why would Jesus rebuke himself (ie God). So man has no place blaming natural disasters on God. It is all Satan's fault

God opened the earth. It was much more then an Earthquake.

Well I believe Dave was implying they may have been sent as judgment on us from God. I would tend to agree moreso with your view of those folks.
