Bob Thiel's "god" Has Tired of Punishing Americans With Tornadoes. It Now Moves To Budapest Where It Is Causing Flooding

Thiel's god is apparently growing weary of using tornadoes to punish filthy American sinners.  His god has moved over to Europe where it is punishing godless Europeans by causing massive flooding on the Danube. In Budapest, the remarkable thing that has risen from this is that the ultra conservative and the ultra liberal parties have all united to help preserve their city.  Political ideologies have went by the wayside as they fill sand bags together under the hot sun.  Somehow I think Thiel's god misjudged these people.

Thiel, the greatest Christan to exist since Dave Pack says this:

Flooding has been in the news in Europe:
June 7, 2013
The crest of the flood-swollen Danube River surged toward the Hungarian capital of Budapest today, while communities along the Elbe in Germany braced for high water as the river churned toward the North Sea.
Elsewhere in central Europe, communities were beginning to count the cost of devastating floods that have hit Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic.
At least 19 people have died over the past week, and experts say the economic damage in Germany alone could top 11 billion euros (US$14.6 billion).
The Danube’s crest left Austria today and entered Hungary, where Prime Minister Viktor Orban warned that water levels were above the all-time highs.
“It is now certain that we will face the largest-ever flood on the Danube, so we must be prepared for the worst,” Orban said Gyor, a western city on the Danube.
The Bible shows that God uses weather to get people’s attention. Sometimes to punish, sometimes to lead to repentance, and other times to consider that God, not humankind, is in control.  God does use weather to get peoples’ attention:
10 “Because, indeed, because they have seduced My people, saying, ‘Peace!’ when there is no peace — and one builds a wall, and they plaster it with untempered mortar — 11 say to those who plaster it with untempered mortar, that it will fall. There will be flooding rain, and you, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall tear it down. 12 Surely, when the wall has fallen, will it not be said to you, ‘Where is the mortar with which you plastered it?’” 13 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in My fury; and there shall be a flooding rain in My anger, and great hailstones in fury to consume it. 14 So I will break down the wall you have plastered with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be uncovered; it will fall, and you shall be consumed in the midst of it. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. (Ezekiel 13:10-14)

Bob wants them all to know that he loves them so much that he is praying for them.  I don't think any of them want or need his insincere prayers.

Of course along with that prayer he has to throw another scripture bomb from his pissed off god.

My prayers are with those affected by the floods and other recent severe weather.
Jesus taught:
7…And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:7-8).
8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)
The sorrows and troubles are just beginning and will get much worse.

Well good! That cranky bipolar god is leaving us alone for awhile! He seemed relentless for awhile. Glad he moved on to browner pastures where the people are miserable in the first place and probably won't even notice -- it's just one more tragedy among so many.

Let's hope he's tired of abusing us and stays away for awhile. We could use the vacation.

Of course, Booby's god sounds an awful lot like Satan the Devil, but in the world of the Cult of Herbert Armstrong, who can tell the difference.

Or maybe it's just weather.

It's like Sigmund Freud said, "Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar" (not that I actually know how that relates to weather, mind you).

Thiel notes: "The Bible shows God uses weather to get people's attention..."

Thiel is stuck on this Bronze Age paradigm and is wrong. His God is weak and lacks communication skills.

The Bible also speaks of unicorns and the four corners of the earth held up on pillars. It also calls a bat a bird and confuses epilepsy for demons and the symptoms of schizophrenia and temporal lobe epilepsy for revelation and prophetic musings.

Not all "the Bible says" should be quoted as fact or used to define any real Deity IMHO. Bible God needs an update from the Hubbell Telescope and Cal Tech. dd

From what I've noticed, Christians in the US run the gamut, from the open mindedness of being willing to admit that Bible God was a construct of Bronze-Age humans, to the extremist views that we need to be against having gay people in our culture, etc.

If Thiel's god really had unlimited power over the weather, he could strike any sinful place at any time with a tornado. Instead Thiel's god uses tornadoes primarily in spring and summer against people in the middle of a continent where cold air from the Arctic can flow unobstructed southward and slam turbulently into moist tropical air flowing unobstructed northward.

This god in his mercy generally spares sinners the scourge of tornadoes in the lee of mountain ranges that obstruct the north/south movement of major air masses. In such places he resorts to floods, avalanches, dust storms, lightning strikes, blizzards, earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes, ice storms, and so on--each apportioned according to the sins committed in the particular locations where those events can be expected to occur as a result of natural processes.

This god is a master of the coverup. The most miraculous thing he does is mask his miracles so that no one can produce hard evidence that they are miraculous.

So true.

See, we believed in the trinity in WCG. Father, Son, and Satan the Devil.

Isn't it funny how god notices you sinning more or less depending on where you live? God hates those penguins in Antarctica most of all, because he's always punishing them with the shittiest weather. They look so cute and harmless, I wonder why god has it in for them? In the bible belt, he punishes everyone with tornadoes every year. But in sunny California, there are no tornadoes or hurricanes, and you can easily go 10 or 20 years without a significant earthquake. God likes Californians. So, I guess Prophet Thiel may have a valid point since, after all, he does occupy the moral high pressure system...

We had a "God may be trying to get our attention" watch last night until 10 PM but He was a no show. Conditions weren't quite right for an appearance apparently.

The Deity will try again today I am told.
