There are different opinions on the subject. I for one have no problem with seeing this act as a judgment upon New Orleans, and a wakeup call for the rest of this nation. Some might say that such a storm is just part of how God set things up, but this seems a little bit deistic to me. Did God not wind up Katrina Himself and direct it where He desired? If so, what is the message that we should be getting from such an act?
