Why Does God Allow Nature Disasters?
Why does God allow natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis? I always find it interesting that people want to blame God. When there are natural disasters, what do insurance companies call it? They call it an “act of God”. That is right. They blame God for things like that, but you never hear them crediting God when things happen that are good in the world. No, you end up seeing that the world wants to blame God for everything that they think is wrong and they want to blame Him. The fact is hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis and these things are an act of, the effect of sin in the world. You can go back to Genesis chapter three and see that when Adam and Eve fell, there was a curse. Well, how far did that curse go? When we can look at Romans chapter eight and see that that it affects the entire universe? Romans 8:18-24:
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. 24 For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
So all these things are the effect of the fall.
