Katrina: God's Judgment on America

The hurricane was an act of God upon a sin-loving and rebellious nation. It's a warning--and a call to repent.

And today, February 6, 2008, the same could be same of the tornado disaster that occurred at Union University in Jackson, Tn. The wrath of the Lord has been visited on the affiliation of the Southern Baptist Convention as punishment for their sanctimony of false piety. Sound ridiculous? Of course, but no more ridiculous than this hateful drivel from David Crowe.

And yet, God in all His power visited destruction not upon the French Quarter where there are acts of depravity every February including drunkenness and women exposing their breasts,but all around it where the God-fearing Catholic and Evangelical poor support the least liberal Abortion laws in the U.S.A. The French quarter is just fine, stayed high and dry, thank you. God spared the home the busiest strip and Jazz clubs and chose instead to devastate the Mississippi coast; they must have been very,very evil, indeed. One other thing that has always puzzled me about the Big Guy's wrath: why does He hate trailer parks so much?

It is amazing how people use Christianity to justify such negativity. Sometimes in life we are tested. When bad things happen and we scramble around looking for a scapegoat declaring "God is punishing us because of gay people or Jews or Blacks or whoever" = then we fail the test. We demonstrate our love of God best when we demonstrate love for each other, not by sugar coating prejudice with a lot of phoney religious sounding rationalization.

I have never been ashamed to be a "Christian" until now, when I have become so very aware of how many people use that term with such disregard for what it actually means. When did "love your neighbor" become "judge your neighbor"? I am disgusted by the level of moral superiority I have seen some so-called Christians exercising int he face of such human suffering and tradegy. I suppose by their logic all the starving and AIDS-stricken people in Africa are "bad" too? Children who die from child abuse were wicked? Suffering is punishment from God? The Bible specifically speaks out about that in several passages...read about the blind man that Jesus healed with the mud, how hte Pharisees questioned what sin must have caused his blindness. Read the book of Job. Hey, how about just cracking your Bible open for a change, and see what God has to say instead of speaking on his behalf? Judgmental Christians, "judge not lest ye be judged". Be Christian, or be quiet! "Christians" like you do more harm than good!

I know that God loves all the gays, the prostitutes, the drug addicts etc. that Lousiana and any other state in the Union, for that matter, have to offer. God sees them as misled sheep that have lost their way and are standing very close to going over a very high cliff. They don't see the danger that is ahead of them because the ones that see it are not warning them of it. I put the blame fully on the phony pastors and preachers that do know that there is danger ahead for these lost sinners but do not warn them. Instead of preaching repentance and turning to God with all of our hearts with clean hearts and clean hands they preach a watered down prosperity doctine to pad their own already thick fat wallets. Satan is alive and well living in America's churches!! The multitudes of souls that will be lost shall be required of them.

Did you know that the Garden District in New Orleans, one of the areas least affected by Katrina, is the area where most gays live? Did you know that Louisiana recently passed a law to ban same sex marriage? Seems to me God loves gay people and hates Lousiana's hypocrisy! Put that in your bigoted pipe and smoke on it, Mr Crowe!

Mr. Crowe was indeed right on the line. I believe that these harsh judgments that are falling on America are God's wake up call. He is trying to wake us up from our slumber before worse things come upon us. In Deutoronomy 28 God offers His chosen people a choice. If they obey Him and follow HIs precepts then they will be blessed, if they don't then the many curses will fall upon them. Just because a people is chosen, as America has been, does not mean that it will be exempt from suffering the consequences of turning its back on God. I had a vision many years ago of what will happen to this once great nation if she does not turn back in humble repentance to the God that made her a great nation. What I was revealed to me is so horrible that it almost defies description. Let us all turn back to God and get our houses in order before it is too late....and no one will be able to work. God help us all!

Anyone remeber the 1980's? A time full of greed, exploitation of the needy and the poor. Remember how it gave way to the 1990's and the attitude of yets start the new millenium with a clean state, lets end hunger, poverty, lets cancel third world debt and give them a fair chance. Then came Bush, the neo-cons and their idea of reshaping the world for the interests of America. Remember the SALT and peace treaties the USA ripped up to put Nuclear weapons in space, remember the civil and legal rights taken away from people. If it is the work of God could it be that God is angry with the Christian neo-con for destroying the best chance this world had for peace?

...Causes the rain to fall on the wicked and the righteous. Sound familiar? I think rather than focus on the outward appearance, we should focus on the heart. There's much to be said for repentance, Amen. Oh, check out the book of Amos sometime. If you recall, the city of Jerusalem was the city of God's own people. When it turned wicked, He brought his wrath upon it. I think Mr. Crowe is dead on with his write-up and it calls forth a Scripture to mind: "When a trumpet sounds in a city, do not the people tremble? When disaster comes to a city, has not the Lord caused it?" (Amos 3:6)

Maybe some people should consider removing the beam from their own eye and not worry about what other people are doing.There is one verse that one should ponder: Save when there be no poor amoung you;for the Lord shall greatly bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance.The past 4yrs poverty has risen.The USA has an infant mortality rate of Malaysia.More people died in NO because the funding for the levees was cut every year since 2000.Maybe this is a wake up call to love thy neighbor.

"The hurricane was an act of God upon a sin-loving and rebellious nation. It's a warning--and a call to repent." Um... plenty of Americans can be quite sinful, in demonstrative ways that would (seemingly) please Mr D Crowe... but plenty of Americans play no part in the 'great' sins of New Orleans and Biloxi. Mr Crowe is 'barking' up a tree with no 'meat' in it. He not only misunderstands the Bible but also abuses it along the way, his little way. It goes, then, without saying that he misunderstands God as well. Sad.
