    Would it be completely out of line for me to look at the bottom picture optimistically?

      I don’t think so, they now can rebuild the church….it leaves me thinking about why God destroyed the earth when it flooed with Noah…I wonder with all the sin, with all the evil if this wasn’t God’s way of taking care of it? I think it is ok to think of the great that can come of this. This church can rebuild, and make it even better, and stronger than before.

        I don’t think it’s quite the same thing as the days of Noah… if anything I think it’s making the statement, “You live in the age of Grace.”

        God destroyed the Bible Belt because of its sin? That would be ironic, and yet appropriate.

      possibly, you’d have to explain your thinking.

        The cross being left is a sign of hope; light shining in on a dark situation. A statement of strength in Christ and a hope in the hereafter. Though heaven and earth will pass away, His words will never pass away. We live in the age of grace and He doesn’t want us to forget that. Though many things seem important, nothing is more important than Christ and what He did for us on the cross.

        Or it could be a coincidence that the cross is left standing and it means nothing at all.

    Wow. Goes to show that wind and water can be far more destructive than a major earthquake. Even the lawn and the soil beneath it are gone.
