Today, the day after Haiti suffered a devastating earthquake, Dr. Pat Robertson said that Haiti was "cursed" because its former leaders made a pact with the devil to free them from French rule. In essence, he implied that Haiti is cursed and got what it deserved. What do you think about Dr. Robertson's statements? Is he correct? If so, who brought the earthquake, God or the devil?
I still make John 10:10 the dividing line to determine what is of God and what is the devil. Jesus said, the thief comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Jesus said He came to bring life i.e. zoe the God-kind of life. Which category would you place destruction and loss of life in?
I do not believe that Dr. Robertson was malicious or cold hearted. I believe that he was attempting to explain why the earthquake occurred. I have no doubt that CBN will provide money and manpower to help the devastated country. However, some things are better not spoken and I think his statement falls into that category. No one really knows why these things occur and in times like this, we must trust our Sovereign God who knows best.
