OK, I really need to go to bed. I’ve got a Community Group discussion to lead tomorrow night about fasting. But that’s another issue.
This morning in class, Prof. Wasem brought up that it’s OK to not have all the answers when talking with people about God. We can’t have all the answers because we’re not Him – so why do we pretend that we do know all of the answers?
Then he brought up Katrina and conversations that will naturally come up…stuff like, “Was Katrina a tool of God used to punish a wicked city of sin?” I’ve heard that argument by some people, and that reasoning is all over the Internet. Of course, the sensible answer to such a question is, “I don’t know why God allows disasters like this to happen. I really don’t know.”
Well, now we don’t have to say that we don’t know anymore. Last night on the radio, I heard the real reason for the hurricane and who’s really to blame…
Yes, friends, it’s the fault of the all-powerful Illuminati, the arch-enemy of humanity who get the blame for everything by conspiracy-theorists like the preacher I discussed in one of my first posts in MattDanTodd Land. They are using a weather maker for population control and to make lots of money.
See? We don’t even have to ask the tough question – Why does God allow bad things happen to good people? (aka theodicy). Instead of pointing the people asking these questions towards God and examples in Scripture (hello!?! Job!!), we can just blame it all on the Illuminati. Isn’t that convenient?
The caller was laughed off the air by the radio host. Good for him.
Man, it’s late. At least my nose isn’t going to be cut off. My eyes feel like sandpaper, though. Good thing I bought eye drops tonight.
