UPDATE: BTW, in case you’re asking, the purpose of this post is to examine the idea that God is attempting to “tell us things” when good or bad things happen.
Why is it that some people say that God is “telling people” something when things happen with which people agree? For instance, what is God “telling people” with natural disasters?
Why is it that when hurricanes hit places, or when punishments happen to people you don’t like or don’t agree with, God is suddenly “telling us something”, BUT, when things happen that shatter what we think about how God is supposed to work, then that can’t possibly be God telling us something??
