They blame illegal logging and mining with regards to the effect of Typhoon Sendong visiting Iligan, Dumaguete and Cagayan de Oro in the Philippines. It is a very tragic ending leaving 950 plus people dead, mostly children and women who were helpless to save themselves during the flash floods and still more people are missing.
Its not the time who is to blame, to finger point what sector or authority is to blame. Ask ourselves this question, what did we do that caused God His anger and removed His protection on these land.
Man should realize that God is telling them something why these things happen. It is about time to ask God for forgiveness of the sins we commit to Him. It is time to get ourselves more on our knees praying, thinking not of ourselves but others and most of all asking God to forgive us.
I pray that the people of God should start to move now and pray and serve others and tell them about the Gospel of Christ. We need God above all, we are nothing without Christ.
2 Chronicles 7:14 says
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous. The days of the blameless are known to the LORD, and their inheritance will endure forever. In times of disaster they will not wither; in days of famine they will enjoy plenty.
