A few days ago we saw the terrible destruction of a 8.9 earthquake upon Japan. The question arises; did God judge the Nation ? or was this just a natural disaster that God had nothing to do with ? This depends on which God we are talking about. If it is an impersonal type of god, like a force of mother nature then this is only a fluke of nature. However, if this calamity is brought on by the holy God of the Bible, we have a much different picture.  Now we can either praise Him or hate Him. Has He done evil or is this justice?                    
              As we contemplate on the answer we must take in the fact that there must be an objective morality outside of ourselves. If mankind is the sole judge of right and wrong, then there must be many rights and wrongs! This is why the scripture says; All the ways of a man are clean in his own eyes; but the LORD weigheth the spirits. Prov.16:2. How is it that there are so many opinions of morality ? Can they all be right ? Sure they can . All that is necessary is to get rid of any absolute standard of reasoning and simply feel your way through life. You can be your own god, set your own standards based on your feelings.Is it any wonder the LORD says ; There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. The word of God tells us: ....God cannot be tempted( tested ) with evil, neither tempted he any: (with evil ).           James 1:13b                                                                                                                                                              Whatever happen to Japan can happen to any Nation. The Lord warned us that as we near the end there will be an increase in all kinds of disasters; disease, pestilence, famines, earthquakes, etc. Matt.24.   I  believe the Lord in his wisdom allows these calamities to take place to bring mankind to him. Run to the cross in    repentance, crying out to the Lord Jesus Christ and your sins shall be forgiven you.          Rom.10:13                                                                      His servant, Chaplain Peter
