Today Joel and I address the unhappy topic of the disaster in Haiti. As with any natural disaster, there has been much public speculation trying to answer the question, "Why?" We as humans have an inherent need to understand our world. In many ways, this is positive. But what do we do when the unexplainable comes along. Oh certainly, geologists can provide technical, materialistic answers as to the physical causes of the earthquake. But ultimately that leaves us empty. Because God has created us as both material and immaterial beings, a simple materialistic answer only satisfies part of us. Ultimately we want to know, "Where was God in all this?" Was this really the wrath of Gaia or a result of a pact with the Devil?
Stay tuned as Joel and I disuse the biblical evidence about what can and can't be known.
