The actor said the hurricanes are "a spectacular display of God’s immense power" and he didn't send them without reason.
"When he puts his power on display, it’s never without reason. There’s a purpose. And we may not always understand what that purpose is, but we know it’s not random and we know that weather is sent to cause us to respond to God in humility, awe and repentance," he said in a video on Facebook.
The 46-year-old said the hurricanes should remind us that God "supplies our life, breath and everything else so that you and I reach out to him."
He asked his fans to use his remarks about the hurricanes as a way to answer their childrens' questions about why the storms were sent. "Remind them that God is the blessed controller of all things," he said. "He is the one who gives us peace, security and strength in the midst of the storm and that he uses this to point us to him and to his care for us."
Deism would imply I never recognized intervention and miracles in the first place.
seems creating the universe would be a miracle.
Today, deism is considered to exist in the classical and modern forms, where the classical view takes what is called a "cold" approach by asserting the non-intervention of deity in the natural behavior of the created universe, while the modern deist formulation can be either "warm" (citing an involved deity) or "cold" (citing an uninvolved deity). These lead to many subdivisions of modern deism which tends, therefore, to serve as an overall category of belief.
There wasn't much difference in the Old Testament with Yahweh as the god of Power and Wrath. The texts that were included in the New Testament (to the exclusion of others) softened him up a bit (although, he's still a thug who tortures people for the rest of eternity). In the Old Testament, he's just a tyrant and whatever he does just has to be accepted because might makes right. But in the New Testament, he's less active and Satan and humans are bigger sources of evil.
