It was on yesterday Friday, when I attended the weekly Good Friday pray and I have to listen to a sermon before the prayer part begin. The preacher was talking about the Earthquake that happened recently in Indonesia such as the 7.6 Richter scale earthquake that happened in Padang.
“All the disaster that strucked Indonesia was because of our unfaithfulness to God. Therefore, God came by giving us a warning such as this to reprimend our action and renew our faith to God”, said the preacher. Hearing this startle me from my weekly doze off from hearing the Good Friday sermon. All of this disaster was caused by our unfaithfulness? But what about the faithful ones who got buried in the Earthquake? Must they suffered the same tragedy as those who aren’t faithful? Not to mention there are innocent children and babies who got killed during the disaster. Is this God’s way of justice?
The sermon then answer, “To those who are faithful who died in the disaster, that is just a consequence of the tragedy. Nevertheless, they will go to the Paradise and live happily there forever”.
Well, now that’s just sad. Giving a reason that the recent disaster which struck Indonesia was caused by the unfaithful people to their God is just an incoherent talk with no proof. How about Swiss, Germany, and other European nation? They consists of majorly non-muslim and so far God is giving them the time of their life with no disaster. Is God too busy bullying our nation and killing innocent children and babies instead of giving His divine message to beer drinking, weed smoking, and prostitute loving people out there?
It seems that God has trouble shooting up His magic to save innocent children from the rubble. Is that more an effective way to send a message that He existed? Anyway, I was laughing inside my head with all that sermon he gave us yesterday. And on the evening, Ujung Kulon got strucked by earthquake and all the people in the office building ran out to save their live. I guess God was angry at me since I laugh at him during the sermon.
