Since you opened the door to the theological perspective, I think its fair to give you a little theological correction. Tsunamis would NOT have occurred before the Fall of man as the Bible states that God created the Earth “and it was good.” Tsunamis are certainly not “good.” The consistent Creationist approach would be that earthquakes and Tsunamis are a residual effect of the global catastrophe that was The Flood of Noah’s day and the subsequent raising of the continents and their separation afterward. Also the Bible states the “earth groans” as woman in labor, awaiting our Lord’s most imminent return.p>No doubt you’re going to take a lot of heat for your perspective. Keep up the good work. br> — Paul /p>
Wonderfully put, Mr. Neumayr, wonderfully put. Thank you for putting our world’s most recent calamity into proper perspective.
Kofi and all the secularist Kupcakes (thank you, Jed Babbin) may pin together their tickytacky UNarks of salvation. But they willfully ignore the most hopeful promise. The LORD God covenantally guarantees to man that “I will never again destroy every living thing as I have done.”
“I establish My covenant with you; and all flesh shall never again be cut off by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth. This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations; I set my [rain]bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth. And it shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the [rain]bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” Genesis 9:11-16
Somewhere in the world, every day, the sun refracts light through water vapor in the rainy skies, and rainbows appear. And every day the LORD sees those ‘bows and holds His covenant in His mind. He will never again flood us out unto death. From God’s perspective those devastating rollers ripping across the Indian Ocean basin amount to no more than ripples in a bathtub. We ought to thank Him that He doesn’t create these awful waves every day!p>”See now that I, I am He, and there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death, and I who give life. I have wounded, and it is I who heal; and there is no one who can deliver from My hand.” Deuteronomy 32:39. But temporal death by water is nothing, compared with eternal death by fire for those reprobates whom God calls “accursed” and “adversaries”. Gospel of Matthew 25:41-46; Hebrews 10:26-30. When we each face the ultimate Judgment Day that eternal Ark, the Lord Jesus, God the Son Himself, will save His people. br> — David James Hanson br> Fayette, Iowa /p>
This piece was simply outstanding. The paragraph:
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
