We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine


Why Does Calamity Occur on the Earth?

God’s Word informs us why calamity occurs on the earth:

“When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.” Isaiah 26:9

&

“I am the LORD, and there is no other, besides me there is no God; I equip you, though you do not know me, that people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the LORD, and there is no other. I form light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity, I am the LORD, who does all these things” (Isaiah 45:6, 7).
