Is God responsible for natural disasters?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we will discuss the very controversial topic of natural disasters. Now this is a very sensitive subject matter and understandably so based on recent catastrophic events that have rocked these United States especially in recent weeks. The truth is natural disasters have been raging upon our earth since the beginning of time and they’re documented within the pages of the Bible also. People’s lives can be ruined by these disasters and the reconstruction of cities can take years to complete. I don’t pretend to have all the answers but I will share with you what God’s word has to say about it. Whenever hurricanes, earthquakes or tsunami’s occur in various parts of the world, the inevitable question becomes “are these disasters caused by natural weather cycles, or are they ‘Gods divine judgment’ or perhaps even a ‘work of the devil?'” The answer to this is complex question is in fact ‘yes’ to all of the above, or a combination because scripture points to all three possibilities.” – Pastor Carl
