Tornado – God’s Judgement or not?

A number of Tornados hit Minneapolis yesterday. One of the damaged buildings happened to be the church where the ELCA were meeting to discuss inclusion of homosexual clergy. The steeple of this church was brought down by the tornado. John Piper wrote on his blog that this might be a sign of God’s judgement. READ IT HERE.

A response to this post has been given by Greg Boyd. his church is also in Minneapolis.He argues that he believes John Piper’s conclusion is wrong and gives a number of reasons / questions. READ IT HERE.

I am not trying to say one is right and the other wrong – but I found it fascinating that two excellent theologians have a different approach to this topic. Boyd’s questions on his blog are excellent and need to be carefully considered if you disagree with him. I do hope Piper responds.
