Readers Respond: Explaining How God can Morally Approve of Natural Disasters

Be the first to respond


According to Genesis, God deemed natural disasters to be 'very good'. What are you feelings on this? Is it immoral and unjust to label parasites, predators, and natural disasters as "very good"?

Or is there some way to read and interpret this biblical passage that makes God look more moral? If so, your solution cannot add anything new that's not already in the biblical text and cannot leave out any details that the Bible provides.
