“Tornadoes and God” I personally do not agree with Piper’s claim that fierce tornadoes are the fingers of God. Also, I do not believe that God directly determined the tornado to kill all who died in the natural disaster, including babies and children. The Bible states that Jesus holds all of nature together. Yes, I believe that God can prevent natural disasters. On the other hand, I still believe that sometimes God shows us He causes natural disasters as a judgment against sin. I do not…

When you go to give your presentation, you put up a slide with only that definition on it. How well do you think that presentation will go? Probably not real great because the context is missing. When one’s only focus is on the conclusion, or the answer, the process of learning, and…
