Natural Disasters are not Caused by Sin

During disasters such as the one in Houston we as Americans pull together as a country to help our fellows.  I don’t mean to be controversial but then again I am writing this as The Backyard Preacher.

Often times when natural disasters strike their is a current of belief within some evangelical leaders and followers which believe God is punishing the victims for their “sin.”  Most of us can see how absurd this is. Yet these are very evil statements. People have suffered and died and “Christian” leaders condone the deaths as punishment for being gay etc…

I have not heard much in the way of this line of thinking recently although what if those on the left stated “The hurricane is because of God punishing Trump voters.”  Or “God is punishing those who for years have fought inequality.”  Do you see how stupid those statements sound.  Yet these statements are made when a natural disaster strikes more liberal areas of the country.

My goal in this is to show the stupidity to think God sends these disasters, and how evil it sounds when people speak with pleasure at the suffering and death of others.  And they call the left ungodly.
