Fires of hell
Many people waited too long and perished as they tried to escape the weekend infernos.
"People need to understand that a late departure is the most deadly," fire chief Paul Rees said.
Recovery teams moving into burned out towns in Victoria state found charred bodies on roadsides and in wrecked cars – grim signs of futile attempts to flee the raging wildfires fed by 100 kilometres-an-hour winds, record heat and drought. The number of deaths was expected to surpass 200, and a few fires were still burning.
I saw a photo today that will forever haunt me. (It's here. Click if you can stand it.)
But, according to these fet-o-philes, it's because God was angered by Victoria's recent relaxation of its abortion laws.
Yesterday (Monday 9th February 2009), the front page of the Herald Sun newspaper reported “The Darkest hour for Victoria”.
A few months ago the news media should have reported “The darkest hour for the unborn” but unfortunately the “Decriminalization of Abortion bill” went through parliament and was passed, thus making many people call Victoria “the baby killing state of Australia”, Mr Nalliah said.
He said on November 7th last year we had sent out an email to our national network and a posting on our website carried an urgent post titled, ‘STOP PRESS. URGENT PRAYER NEEDED REGARDING AUSTRALIA, ESPECIALLY THE STATE OF VICTORIA’ following a dream he had on the 21st of October 2008, which he shared with his team on 22nd October.
Following is an excerpt from the dream which was published in the article:
“In my dream I saw fire everywhere with flames burning very high and uncontrollably. With this I woke up from my dream with the interpretation as the following words came to me in a flash from the Spirit of God. That His conditional protection has been removed from the nation of Australia, in particular Victoria, for approving the slaughter of innocent children in the womb.”
Interestingly enough, the church claiming this nonsense is called Catch the Fire Ministries.
