Major quake strikes off Japan, setting off small tsunami
A powerful earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan on Friday evening, rattling buildings in Tokyo and setting off a small tsunami.
It also jarred nerves in a nation still recovering from the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March 2011 that killed thousands of people and triggered the world's worst nuclear crisis in a quarter century.
Some roads were closed and rail services suspended in the northeastern prefecture of Miyagi, where a one-meter (3-foot) tsunami rolled ashore. It was followed by four other waves ranging from eight to 16 inches. Only minor injuries were reported immediately, including five in Miyagi and five on the outskirts of Tokyo....
Gil Rugh said or, wrote: .... We should be moved with compassion when tragedies take place but we must have a proper perspective about tragedies. The God who created everything continues to be active in His Creation. He sustains it, directs it, and controls it. The Father and the Son are involved in the Creation. The Deist position that the Creation goes on by the working of natural laws without Christ's involvement is not biblical. The Scriptures from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21 speak of His personal and direct involvement. Such is our comfort and confidence in times such as these if the Creator Christ is our personal Lord and Savior!
