Any time there is a natural disaster we hear the anxious refrains of people who have bought into an understandable but erroneous view of God: Why did God allow this to happen? The answer is quite simple. It isn’t the role of God to contradict the laws of nature. Natural disasters are part of how our planet and atmosphere work. The question isn’t why God didn’t stop this. The question is how is God calling us to respond in light of Sandy.
