Is It Just Me...

Or, are you as tired of reading and receiving articles from 'Christian' news outlets that claim they have the answer to Hurricane Katrina?

One group claims that New Orleans was a WICKED city, simply ripe for destruction, as if every other major U.S. city isn't! Another claims that they 'prophesied' this event (even though, upon close inspection of the prophecy, it was made last year during Ivan, which MISSED New Orleans, they just pushed it up a year!) And now the articles have begun flooding in that claim that the whole thing was not necessarily caused by, but certainly exacerbated by, the welfare state/system!

Why is it that we are so quick to claim God's judgment (especially when it promotes our agenda), but so slow to minister God's grace? Is it because there is little in grace that makes ME feel good?

I tire of a Christian community that has become so polarized and political that they no longer can step up and show the world the love of God without sending out articles and newsletters proclaiming God's judgment on all who disagree with them! GIVE ME A BREAK!

It is not that any of us know the dark things of the Lord, so stop the GUESSING, and get down to the business of doing God's work as outlined in the Bible... AND PLEASE NO MORE CHAIN LETTERS, ARTICLES, or PROPHECIES regarding Hurricane Katrina!!!
