The unfathomable ways of “Our Lord”
Die Burger reports a wonderwerk (miracle): A petrol bomb was thrown into the Gereformeerde Kerk Pretoria-Noord Tuesday night last… but did not explode, even though it had hit a pew.
“The grace and hand of God quenched the flame”, yauped the reverend Pieter van Wyk.
Yet on January 18 the roof of the popular Reborn in Christ Church near downtown Sao Paulo gave way during the evening service, trapping worshipers beneath a mountain of rubble and wooden beams. Nine people died – including a 15 year old girl – and 113 were injured.
Now maybe it’s just me, but if you are going to credit “God” with the saving the Pretoria church, you must debit “God” with the destruction of the Sao Paulo church…
“God”. What a piece of work.
All I can think is that the poor curmudgeon hasn’t been laid in centuries.
