Just watched one of many interviews on the TV on the terrible tornado damage and loss of life in the South East here in the States. I think it's about 250 killed now. So hard to watch.
But an elderly lady said "it was God's will and we just have to accept God's plans and go on."
What do you think about her explination of this horrible event?
Good things happen to good people, bad things happen to good people, good
things happen to bad people, and bad things happen to bad people. The point
is that things happen; God sends rain and both the good and bad get wet. We
live in a universe where all the forces of nature are simply just doing their
thing and we are in the midst of it, we shouldn't think God likes us if we are
very blessed or hates us if we are under a lot of stress, those things are just
things everyone has to deal with. Scripture teaches that we have an appointed
time to die; it has been in effect since sin. That event was a nasty thing as far
as I'm concern, I hate death, I'll be glad when God deals with it once and for
