actually, there are 4 options for every disaster which occurs: 1) God didn't know it was going to happen. 2) God knew it would happen, but couldn't do anything about it. 3) God knew it would happen, and let it happen. 4) God caused it to happen But God is all knowing, so the first one is clearly not the case, and we know that God doesn't want anyone to go to die (and go to hell) to the third one is not true either. This leaves two options, either God causes these disasters, or he is unable to prevent them. .. It's funny that you brought up Noah's flood. You see, most people think that God destroyed the earth with the flood, but he didn't. In the Hebrew language there is no way to differentiate between the causative and permissive forms of a verb. True, in most all of the translations of the Bible the causative tense is used, but it is also a perfectly viable translation which claims that the permissive tense is the intended one. Age, I'm sure you've heard someone at church talk about the umbrella of protection.
