It makes me sad to hear people say things like, “God spared me from that tornado”.
Of course, the same statement can be applied to any disaster, natural or otherwise. Why does it make me sad? Because the implication is that “God” did NOT spare those people who lost their lives, homes, family, etc.
And so I pose some questions:
Can anything other than Good come from God?
If everything “came” from God, than everything is perfectly good, is it not (note that I’m not talking about morally “good”)?
Why would a perfectly “Good”, Loving, Accepting, etc God impart disaster?
