This morning I awoke to the sound of thunder and flash of lightning; as it shook the house, I cowered under my sheets. I imagined the Greek God Zeus throwing his lightning rods toward earth. I then recollected a verse in the Book of Prophecy:
In this world, landslides, thunder, earthquakes,
And great winds are all from the anger of God. 6-91
From a religious prospectus, this may serve as a teaching tool that God is not happy about the actions of mankind. In the Bible, God destroyed the earth because of mankind’s evil behaviors, albeit with the exception of Noah. But can we somehow utilize science and physics in explaining natural catastrophes and also relating it to human behavior. Let us first look at thunder and lightning. They are composed of a plethora of energy derived from many sources. The same came be said of the power of the earthquake. But what is the source of these energies. Can they be from God? Could the Greeks have been correct in their depiction of Zeus?
In the Book of Prophecy, it is said that the Universe is the body of God. God also calls himself the Moon/Sun (Tsukihi).
I shall teach you step by step that this world is
the body of God. Ponder, and look at it. 3-40
We can conclude that God is composed of an enormous mass of energy that is generated from the universe.
The true and real God is Tsukihi (sun/moon) 6-51
We know that the moon and sun can affect what occurs on earth, including the weather. This is explained by the energies generated by the sun and moon.
If the universe is the body of God, we are also part of God; more specifically our bodies are part of God. We like God are composed of energy. Our thoughts are composed of energy. Our thoughts are energies that gets converted to actions and released into our surroundings. Walking and talking are examples of the conversion of energy. There are positive and negative energy, corresponding to positive and negative thoughts manufactured in the mind. Stress is negative energy produced by our minds. We know that stress can negatively affect our bodies. But can negative thoughts like greed, arrogance, and self-love accumulate and cause the build up of negative energy in the universe (body of God). We have 7 billion people generating evil thoughts (negative energy) every day. Could it be the evil thoughts and behavior of mankind that generate the energies that produce the natural disasters that we see? Could the naturalist be incorrect in blaming global warming? Were the Greeks correct in their interpretation of angry God throwing lightning rods at the people below? Or is it plausible that the lightning and thunders are not directed to anyone in particular, but a way of releasing God’s anger that are generated by the people below.
