Actor and Creationist Kirk Cameron took time out of his busy (?) schedule to talk about Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. In video taken this morning at an airport in Orlando (Florida), Cameron explained how the natural disasters were obviously signs from God.
Climate change, of course, didn’t factor into the discussion.
God wanted us to be humble, so he killed dozens of people in Houston, decimated an entire island, and is still creating chaos in the Caribbean.
… One thing we know about hurricanes — and all weather — is that this is not Mother Nature in a bad mood. This is a spectacular display of God’s immense power. And when He puts His power on display, it’s never without reason. There’s a purpose. And we may not always understand what that purpose is, but we know it’s not random. And we know that weather is sent to cause us to respond to God in humility, awe, and repentance…
Even if that were true, that’s not a God worth worshipping.
If God wanted us to be in awe of or inspired by him, here’s an idea: Spare us the senseless deaths. Just say hello. Don’t send a hurricane (or Kirk Cameron) to do it on Your behalf.
