Even the New Agers understand the simple maxim: If you don’t get the message the first time, God will deliver it again (although New Agers, not understanding God, call Him “Source” or “Gaia”). Well, God has delivered on his promise, and the terrible tsunamis in Japan are driving the message home for them.
Shinto and Buddhism make a mockery of Christ and his sufferings for your eternal salvation. Not only is the cataclysmic destruction being heaped on Japan a punishment for their refusal to convert to the One True Religion, but also various and sundry other offenses.
Does cutting the fins off of sharks and throwing them back into the water to die a horrible death constitute being good stewards to the lower animals? Just for the pleasure of eating the shark’s fins, these brutal people toy with one of God’s creatures. And they eat many other strange ocean creatures, as well.
Though the Lord may have allowed them to languish,manufacturing small electronic goods until they realized the One True Faith, He would not forbear their vicious brutality in WWII, nor the Rape of Nanking. Since they have not attoned, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were merely prelude to their current misery.
Our God is an avenging God. Merciful to the sharks and to the memory of those who suffered at the hands of the yellow ones, avenging to their perps. When will people get this right? Johnny Cash laid it out in his famous “I Walk the Line”: Because you’re mine (dear Lord), I walk the Line.
