Is it the right time to hit Japan after that earthquake?
March 14, 2011 5:06am CST
We knew well enough that japan had been destructively destroying our reefs and water resources out of their endless shark killing, and more... we have lots of videos of them in the net... we have some reports of them in the net... we have endless argumentation about the right thing to do against them. But is it okay to ressurrect such discussions now that they just got hit but a massive earthquake? I don't know with you but I wouldn't blame the others for airing their concerns about the ways of Japan in fishing...just that there is always the right time to do such things... What do you think?

At this point of tragic happening I don't think it is fair to bring out all those issues. We're talking about lives lost and current situation the Japanese people are going through. Whatever happened, it's already beyond people's control. Now is the time to become one and help each other out instead of blaming each other. This may serve as a warning to everyone though and maybe would serve as a lesson for all of us.

With the possibility that 10,000 lives have perished as a consequence of the earthquake, I feel that it would definitely be the wrong time in which focus on the country's fishing. I believe that the Japanese would be understandably focused on recovering those who have been lost as a result of this traagedy; and on rebuilding the towns and cities that were destroyed. And I think that we should be, as well.

Natural disasters are always a hard thing to accept and move on.But something are beyound our control so we have to accept them.At this moment japan needs all attention and support from every country.Natural dissasters like Tsunami are always a hard thing to cope with and its not gonna affect a single country but its impact would be on the whole world.So we all need to be united and work towards making a nice world where we could all live happily.

Natural disasters are definitely not random, nor do they just kill people indiscriminately. They are very precise - right down to the person. If you want to see it that way, then yes, this is retribution for all the vast quantities of killing that the Japanese people have done over the years, plus the fact that they frequently hunted in our territorial waters to do so, under the false pretenses of scientific research! When are people going to learn that you cannot kill another living being without paying for it - sometimes with your own life. I watched as that tsunami wiped out a whole fishing village in seconds. We should all really take a personal lesson from this instead of thinking that it has nothing to do with us. But we must be careful with our response to such situations. What comes to mind is what Jesus had to say when pressured to respond to a woman caught in the act of adultery in John 8:7, KJV "So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." & then in John 8:10-11 "When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more." So if even Jesus, who was perfect & without sin, did not stand in judgment, then who am I to stand in judgment against another? Our first response, therefore, should be just to love & to help others as soon as it is needed. This was Australia's response to Japan & we were among the first to send significant help to the region.

For me, this is no time for blaming! We should rather pray for them. If Japan indeed committed that transgression, then let God judge them. We are not sinless either we should remember. So, instead of thinking of the faults of Japan and its people maybe we should rather concentrate on self evaluation. While we may not be destructively destroying our reefs and water resources are we living life holy enough to make us invulnerable or exempted from the wrath of God? All these things happening around should serve as an eye opener. Instead of seeing the fault of others let us look at our own life. Are we living life the way God wants it to be or we are living like there is no God at all. Don't wait till the next strong earthquake and subsequent great waves hit you also. Should it happen to us are we prepared? How could we ever escape it? God has given us one way to escape and it is here in 2Chronicles 7:14 - "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

Are you serious?? Many innocent people are dying, I can't even count how many missing children they're still waiting to find in Sendai. Everyday the number of the victims raises, and the possibility of a nuclear disaster are still there, even if they're not as high as foreigner newspapers are saying. Bringing out those issues is just stupid and unfair.
