February 2010

 

   

 

My dear friend,

 

Needless to say, my message “Earthquake in Haiti: Judgment or Geology” has angered many people – heathen and professing Christians.  Let me share with you a couple of e-mails I received.

 

First, here is an e-mail from Robert, an employee of Habitat for Humanity International:

 

Take your racist, superstitious crap elsewhere.

 

And here is my reply:

 

I will add you to my prayer list, Robert. Jesus bids you: "Come and follow me."

 

And here is Robert's reply:

 

I think your time would be better spent in rethinking your hateful screed.  Do you really think your god has appointed you to speak for him?  Do you really think you can take god's place and stand in judgment of these, your Haitian brothers and sisters?  By your own rules, this presumption puts your eternal soul in peril.

 

Now, here is an excerpt from their Web site @ 

https://www.habitat.org/how/factsheet.aspx

 

What is Habitat for Humanity International?

bulletA nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing ministry.

"Christian housing ministry"? Does Robert's e-mail sound "Christian" to you?  Notice he doesn't even capitalize God, and uses the angry phrase "your god."

After praying about it, I did not respond to Robert.  The Bible admonishes us to avoid vain babbling.  "Avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith" (I Timothy 6:20, 21). 

 

Next, here is an e-mail from Alan:

 

I'm a born-again Christian, and very active in my church.

If this was truly an act of God against voodoo, why would God not also punish nations around the world that do not practice Christianity, and haven't practiced Christianity across the records of time?

If God wanted to punish those in New Orleans, wouldn't He have brought on a natural disaster in which there was no recovery from? Why would He punish the innocent and born-again Christians?

And if you are going to cite encyclopedia references, you may want to try something post-1950. We've learned a lot since then.

 

And here is my response:

 

As for the encyclopedia references, I am sure that you realize newer encyclopedias are politically correct. They do not mention the serpent-worship and obscene rites of voodoo. They do not call it sorcery.  They call it a traditional religion of Haiti. Anyway, we haven’t learned anything new about voodoo.  The devil worship of voodoo has not changed.  Devil worship is still devil worship.

 

As for the earthquake, as Christians, we know that God is the omnipotent Creator whose ways are often beyond understanding.  And He does not have to justify and defend His actions to us. 

 

But this we do know: In the case of Sodom and Gomorrah, God would have destroyed the righteous with the wicked if Abraham had not pleaded with the Lord to save the cities if ten righteous were found. You know the rest of the story: ten righteous could not be found. So, the Bible clearly tells us that sometimes the righteous may be destroyed with the wicked.

 

In the case of Job, he was a righteous man.  He questioned God about the suffering of the righteous: he desired understanding and justification for the ways of the Lord.  And God answered Job out of the whirlwind: 

 

“Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare if thou hast understanding. . .”

 

God reproves Job for passing judgment on God about matters that he does not understand – the mysteries of God.

 

Then Job repented: “Therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not . . .Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

 

As Christians, we know that the Lord God exercises perfect justice in His government of the world.  We must not question God’s judgment on a country that practices sorcery.   

 

Isaiah prophesies a judgment of doom on those who practice sorcery in Is. 47:9 - 15.  Woe unto the man or nation that practices sorcery!  Woe unto Haiti!

 

Murmuring against acts of God is attacking God’s justice. 

 

We must not condemn God’s judgment.

 

We must not judge God.

 

Like Job, we must humble ourselves before the Lord God Almighty: “Therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not . . . Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

 

Peace and grace to you,

My dear friend, who are we to murmur at God’s judgment against a country that practices voodoo?

 

Christian missionaries have been evangelizing in Haiti for many years, but Haitians refuse to repent of voodoo.  Why is it unjust that the Just One would send doom on a country that practices sorcery?

 

God never has to defend or justify His actions to us.

 

Like Job, we must repent for passing judgment on God about matters that we do not understand: “Therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not . . .Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

 

Murmuring against acts of God is attacking God’s justice.  

 

We must not condemn God’s judgment.

 

We must not judge God.  

 

God never has to defend or justify His actions to us. 

 

Peace and grace to you,

 

Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.
