Sinners Above All?

There is some talk that God (or allah) caused the Tsunami to punish sinful acts (fornication and sexual perversion) committed in those areas. Is this true? The theory just doesn't hold water. What makes them think those same sins are not being committed in every city, in every country around the world? What, it's worse in Indonesia? The Middle East is not a den of iniquity? America, Canada, Mexico, Europe, China, Columbia, Brazil? - name one country that doesn't have these things going on to some degree.

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God Romans 3:23

Jesus spoke directly about just this sort of thing.

And some were present at the same time reporting to Him of the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices.

And answering, Jesus said to them, Do you suppose that these Galileans were sinners above all the Galileans because they suffered such things?

I tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.

Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were sinners above all men who lived in Jerusalem?

I tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish. Luke 13:1-5

Time and chance happen to all. Do something to help.

Neal Boortz did some investigating and recommends AmeriCares. They look pretty good in Charity Navigator
