Christian pastor John Piper knows exactly why tornadoes recently hit Marysville and Henryville, Indiana.
Wanna take a guess…?
Oh, you know exactly where this is going, don’t you…
We do not ascribe such independent power to Mother Nature or to the devil. God alone has the last say in where and how the wind blows. If a tornado twists at 175 miles an hour and stays on the ground like a massive lawnmower for 50 miles, God gave the command.
This is a word to those of us who sit safely in Minneapolis or Hollywood and survey the desolation of Maryville and Henryville. “Unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.”
Every deadly wind in any town is a divine warning to every town.
God’s will for America under his mighty hand, is that every Christian, every Jew, every Muslim, every person of every religion or non-religion, turn from sin and come to Jesus Christ for forgiveness and eternal life. Jesus rules the wind. The tornadoes were his.
God is sending the tornadoes as a warning. REPENT!
(How do you know when a Christian is truly out of touch with reality? They refuse to allow comments on their website. Piper doesn’t want to hear about how wrong he is. He’s perfectly fine with a one-way conversation.)
Anyway, maybe he’s just auditioning for an opening at Westboro Baptist Church.
Talk about twisted theology…
To any Christians out there, don’t defend this guy. And don’t stay silent. He’s full of shit and you know it. Say so openly. ***Update***: Good start right here.
Piper is approaching Pat Robertson levels. Robertson said on the 700 Club that if the people hit by the tornadoes had just prayed, everything would’ve been ok:
“If enough people were praying [God] would’ve intervened, you could pray, Jesus stilled the storm, you can still storms”
At least most Christians admit Robertson is crazy.
Piper, on the other hand, is still considered a “widely respected” evangelical pastor. That has to stop.
For anyone wondering where tornadoes *actually* come from, I’m just gonna leave this right here.
