So, are all the Old Testament accounts of God using nature to punish sinners a myth, or is it true? Also, the ancient Hebrews believed that God sent signs, such as the rainbow, to communicate with people.
Was the story of Jericho and it’s tumbling walls merely an earthquake that got attributed to God’s intervention, or does God carefully choreograph natural events to do his will? How about Sodom and Gommorah? Or the story of the flood? Were ancient people just superstitious, looking for an explanation of things they couldn’t explain, or does God really send lightening to strike people down? If so, how are we to tell when it’s God’s intervention or just a random act of nature?
