Last summer, the discovery of several new giant craters in Siberia drew worldwide interest, launching wild speculation that meteorites, or even aliens, caused the gaping crevasses. And now, scientists have found even more of them. In July 2014, reindeer herders discovered a 260-feet-wide (80...

 The end of the world as we know it could come in any number of ways, depending on who you ask. Some people believe global cataclysm will occur when Earth's magnetic poles reverse. When north goes south, they say, the continents will lurch in one direction or the other, triggering massive...

 Melting ice triggered by global warming may make Earth whirl faster than before and could shift the axis on which the planet spins, researchers say. This could also affect sunset times, as the length of Earth's day depends on the speed at which the planet rotates on its axis. Prior research...

 If you live near the Gulf of Mexico and you observed an unusual tinge of color in the ocean earlier this month, it wasn't your imagination. The strange hue was caused by a phenomenon called a "red tide," and beaches in states from Florida to Texas were closed to protect people from potential...

 Two species of venomous sea snakes that were thought to be extinct have been discovered slithering off the coast of western Australia. The brownish-purple leaf-scaled sea snake (Aipysurus foliosquama) and the yellowish-brown short-nosed sea snake (Aipysurus apraefrontalis) once lived among...

Earth’s magnetic field is not about to flip. While the intensity of this field has weakened in the last couple hundred of years, researchers have found that this doesn’t mean it’s about to reverse. Humans have lived through dips in magnetic field intensity before. However, there are debates about...

Shallow ditch-like groves running horizontally across the moon's surface represent underlying structural failures, like cracks in a sidewalk. Ultimately, scientists at NASA predict, these failures...

Is God Using The Weather To Judge Us?

Grace Through Faith:

Q. I live near Joplin, MO  where an F5 tornado struck last weekend.  Please help me because I know as I go to Joplin and help with our church I will be asked why God allowed this to happen, and I would like to be able to answer them from God’s word. We don’t know why God allows storms or stops storms or why they hit where they do. But He is in control of them and He sees the big picture and He’s God  who are we to question Him, so basically I feel confused.  Also there are a lot of people saying that when disaster strikes it’s God’s judgment on their sin and if that’s the case wouldn’t all of us need to take cover because we are all sinners?

A. For me this is a simple issue.  There was no bad weather before there was sin.  You can make a circumstantial case from the Bible that it had never even rained on Earth before the Great Flood.  Extreme weather is one of the enduring consequences of that judgment, so if you’re looking for someone to blame don’t blame God.  Blame the one who brought sin into the world and made the judgment necessary.  As far as weather is concerned the only thing God promised is that He would never destroy the Earth by water again (Genesis 9:13-15).

I also don’t think the Bible supports the “God is in control” idea in the universal sense in which most people think of it.  Certainly it’s true that eventually God’s will is going to be accomplished on Earth and in Heaven, but for now the whole world is under the control of the evil one (1 John 5:19).

As for judgment, the Bible says when God uses weather as a tool of judgment men’s hearts will fail them for fear (Luke 21:26) and the hail stones will weigh 100 lbs. each (Rev. 16:21) so you really won’t want to be around when His judgments begin.  Thankfully, God won’t judge the world until He has taken the Church out of the way (1 Thes. 1:10).
