The God of the Hurricane: Blame and Defense

National Public Radio Senior News Analyst Daniel Schorr was so bold as to impugn God regarding Hurricane Katrina.  Pastor John Piper of Bethelehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota has passionately answered him.  Although Piper always speaks and writes with manifest zeal, he seems to write with a particularly jagged edge in this response.  This is fitting, because God is being questioned.  And God will never, ever be found on the witness stand in the courtroom of mankind nor will He be cross-examined by the blind and hardened blameshifters of America.  God answers to no one.  No one.  This is His glory, and for those whose eyes have been opened, this is our joy.
