Ken Ham: god’s judgment looks exactly like god’s non-judgment.

A sad thing happened at the creation museum recently (you might think “people attended”, and you’d be right, but that’s not what I’m talking about).  A lightning strike charged a piece of equipment and one of their employees touched it and got shocked.  Thankfully, his injuries were minor at most.

But people asked the logical question: Ken Ham has said in the past that natural disasters are punishment from god for homosexuality or other innocuous things, so wouldn’t this be god punishing the creation museum?  Well, Ham has responded:

“Well first of all, we certainly do say that ‘disasters’ and ‘personal tragedies’ are the result of God’s judgment–God’s judgement BECAUSE of our sin in Adam! Romans 8.22 makes it clear the whole world groans because of our sin,” Ham wrote. “The fact we get sick and die is because of God’s judgment on sin! But praise the Lord, God had a plan from eternity to save us from the consequence of our sin–He paid the penalty for our sin and offers us a free gift of salvation (Romans 10:9).”

So god’s judgment falls upon Christians just as much as gays, murderers, thieves, etc…just like you’d expect in a universe with no god, where storms and natural disasters struck at random, rather than on people who most offended the Christian faith.
