Big Ten

You need someone at which to point a finger, right?

It’s funny how much of humanity blames our boss when things go awry. No, he doesn’t bring tornadoes, famine, tsunamis, or other disasters. The rest of us are much too busy preparing for the arrival of the victims of such strife.

You do know that natural disasters are also known as “Acts of God,” right? Force majeure (literally, “superior force”) is the legal term in the original French which is still included in most insurance policies and corporate contracts.

If you still wish to play the blame game, however, remember that in the Big Book, God kills 2,476,633 men, women, and children, not including those who perished during the big flood.

Satan’s count is a whopping ten. Just ten people in the entire tome and guess what?

ALL OF THEM WERE KILLED WITH GOD’S PERMISSION.

Stew on that the next time you’re praying for someone upstairs to save you as the hurricane blows or the waters rise.
