Hello Thank you for the follow! I have a question that I hope you may be able to shed a bit of light on. Actually, it’s a question that my friend asked me and I’ve been a bit torn on how to answer. Does God create disease and natural disasters? If so, why? If not, why doesn’t He stop them? I would appreciate your response greatly! -In Christ, Michael
Please first know that we tiny little human beings with our 3 lb. brains and stupid idol-craving hearts couldn’t possibly answer the huge question of planetary problems. The Bible (not surprisingly) doesn’t say much about it, except that disaster and disease will happen. In other words, God doesn’t need to defend Himself since He’s God.
But I’ll try to provide some biblical and logical reasons here. Please note that to an unbeliever, these answers will sound stupid. But the Bible told us that would happen, even when Jesus died, and believers will reason it out through His Spirit. So I’m not here to convince anyone, but rather humbly see things from God’s point of view.
