What is happening?  Everyday we hear on television how the “wrath of Mother Nature has wrecked havoc” somewhere in our country.

Almost 1000 tornados have hit the USA this year so far, and more than 100 people have died.

Tornados have ripped through the mid-west and east.  Torrential rains have caused flooding in several states, with roads washed out, houses submerged, and cars with only their rooftops visible.

Fires in Florida and California have devastated many acres.  And now it’s time for the hurricane season to begin.

In China 5.5 million people have been left homeless from the terrible earthquakes that have hit there recently.  Nearly 100,000 people died in those quakes.

In Myanmar (Burma) 60,000 or more have died when a cyclone hit that country.  There is death, disease, and poverty everywhere for those poor people to contend with.  Their main religion is Buddhism.

I realize that China and Myanmar are not Christian countries, and perhaps God is judging them for that?

The book of Job shows us how God works as he controls nature.

See my article: God Controls Nature

Another helpful article explaining the origin of the phrase “Mother Nature that we use so much today is here.   God or Mother Nature?

There are also some people in this country today who actually worship Mother Nature, or Mother Earth.  This is a false religion but many take it very seriously.  They are worshipping the creation rather than the creator.

So, I come back to my beginning question:  What is happening?

Do you think God is judging this nation with the wicked weather we are experiencing?  I’d like to hear your thoughts on this.
