The Lie that God Takes No Responsibility for Natural Disasters

Selected highlights from this sermon.

Is God responsible for natural disasters? Ultimately, yes. In some cases, He’s indirectly involved by allowing the fallen Earth to run its course, or by allowing Satan to stir up a storm as in the book of Job.

In other instances, God Himself directly causes the disaster. The flood of Noah’s time, the earthquake that swallowed up the sons of Korah, and the storm on the Sea of Galilee were all caused by God and noted as such in the Bible.

Whether directly or indirectly, God is in control of all that happens. But the purposes behind devastating natural disasters are something we will probably never know.

The sun shines on the just and unjust alike. So too, disasters happen to both believers and unbelievers.
