One final explanation for why bad things happen in this world is that God withdraws His hand of protection. God rarely does this, but it does sometimes happen when we persist in sin or consistently misuse and abuse God’s gifts
None of us would deny Jesus the incarnation as a man, even though He appeared guilty on the cross. But we want to deny God His incarnation in Israel because it makes God look guilty. God looks guilty in Israelite history in the same way that Jesus looks guilty dying on the cross.
Storms are not from God; they are a result of nature having spun out of control. God’s involvement is not to send storms, but to protect us from them. When storms come, there are a nearly-infinite number of variables that causes them.
