There’s certainly a school of belief that God does sometimes express his wrath through natural disasters, and there are biblical verses to quote: “The LORD Almighty will come with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.” (Isaiah 29:6)
But as a punishment for not believing a scientific theory? C’mon!
As we reflect on the significance – if any – of these terrible hurricanes, let us remember two things; firstly, of course, to pray for the poor people suffering, at this time, and secondly, one thing that has not made (and is unlikely to make) the anti-Trump broadcasting news here in the UK – that President Trump donated one million dollars of his personal money to the people of Texas and Louisiana.
Over to you – are these hurricanes a punishment for not “believing in” global warming?
