What Does This Mean?


Last night the above sixty foot tall statue of Jesus was struck by lightning and burned to the ground (read more about it here).

What does this mean? Is the world coming to an end? Should we all run for cover?

Frankly, I don't think it means much of anything.

It does however, make me think of a fairly significant bible verse.

Exodus 20:4, "You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."

God is Sovereign, and that includes lightning! I think He hit his intended target.

Eric,
Heard it on the 5.00am news today. That verse popped into my head, and I guess, many other Christian heads.

Someone will make a big religious story out of the event.

Micah and John,

The world will probably be a better place without it!
