Yes, God is in control of this

The recent earthquake that spawned tsunamis in the Pacific Ocean will undoubtedly lead to a debate on God’s role in the whole affair. Questions will be asked…

  • Is God good and just not powerful enough to stop this?
  • Is God all powerful but not good?
  • If God is both good and all powerful how does something like this happen?

These questions are old. They’ve all been asked before and they’ve all been answered before. God is good. He is sovereign over all creation. John Piper has explained how this is possible in an article he wrote after the World Trade Center attack on September 11, 2001.

His explanation still applies.
