Squeezing the Middle Class (April 30, 2014)

With the buying power of the middle class shrinking, each political party blames the other and claims its own economic policies are the solution. But economists say part of the squeeze is coming from skyrocketing food prices caused by natural disasters.

The effect on the economy of things outside man’s control should remind us that God is ultimately in control. In fact, the Bible tells us that God sometimes used nature to express His judgment on unrighteous nations. Of course, not every natural disaster is God’s judgment on a group of people, but for those who take the Bible seriously, can we ignore the possibility in view of our nation’s cultural degeneracy?

Such a thought will make the scientific man of today laugh, as well as many Christians. That’s all right. They probably laughed at Noah, too.
