Does God Hate Haiti?

Pat Robinson, of 700 Club fame made the evening news again when he commented about the tragic earthquake in Haiti. He told about of the Haiti nation's fight for independence from the French in the late 18th century and told the story about representatives of the Haiti nation making a pact with the Devil to throw off the French.

Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere is well known for it's religious syncretism, known for its voodoo, sorcery and a Catholic traditon greatly influenced by the occult. But Robinson did finally get around to modifying his first statement!

The 7.0 quake crumbled entire villages, with bodies flying in the air and crushed under mountains of debris. Orphanages, churches, markets, homes, and government buildings all collapsed. Civil government has virtually ceased to function.

If God hated Haiti, there would be no missionaries there; there would be no aid pouring into Haiti; there would be no rescue efforts -- there would be no hope.

The cross of Christ declares that Jesus loves Haiti . Christ's people must do everything we can to alleviate the suffering, bind up the wounded, and comfort the grieving. Of course God does not hate Haiti?

If you have any doubts about this, take your Bible and turn to John 3:16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. That is God's message to Haiti." _____________________________:
