Act of G’d
a terrorist act ? or an act of g’d ?
an act of man, or an act done by man, sanctioned through g’d, in and through scripture, is an act of g’d, as g’d speaks through man, and mans justification is by the scripture, which in it’s self is then an act of g’d – as all scripture is good for rebuking ?

"An act of God does not violate the legal rights of anyone. The loss from an injury caused thereby must be borne by the one who suffered it." An extraordinary and unexpected natural event, such as a hurricane, tornado, earthquake, tsunami, or even the sudden death of a person. An act of God may be a defense against liability for injuries or damages; insurance policies often exempt coverage for damage caused by acts of God. Under the law of contracts, an act of God often serves as a valid excuse if one of the parties to the contract is unable to fulfill his or her duties — for instance, completing a construction project on time.
An event which is caused solely by the effect of nature or natural causes and without any interference by humans whatsoever. Or, as set out in Tennant v. Earl of Glasgow, (House of Lords, 1864):
Ezekiel 9:5 As I listened, he said to the others, "Follow him through the city and kill, without showing pity or compassion.” Ezekiel 9:6 Slay utterly old [and] young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom [is] the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which [were] before the house. Ezekiel 23:39 On the very day they sacrificed their children to their idols, ( Elton John ) they entered my sanctuary and desecrated it. ( put a Canadian flag at the alter and other things detestable ) That is what they did in my house.of living "Those who know their Lord’s will, and do it not, shall be beaten with many stripes. The unfaithful members of Christ’s church will be first visited and most punished. But let not those who belong to the synagogue of Satan exult in this, for if judgment begin at the house of God what will the end be of them who obey not the Gospel! However, the truly penitent of all descriptions in such cases shall be safe. The command of God is, "Set a mark on all them that sigh and cry;" and his command to the destroyers is, "Come not near any man on whom is the mark." ( since many can wear the mark, but not be of the mark, i called you out, to get two witness, and to those that signed authority unto them in same sex marriage ) Jeremiah 25:29 See, I am beginning to bring disaster on the city that bears my Name, and will you indeed go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword upon all who live on the earth, declares the LORD Almighty.’
The phrase, “ act of God ”, is sometimes used to attribute an event to divine intervention. Often it is used in conjunction with a natural disaster or tragic event: A miracle, by contrast, is often considered a fortuitous event attributed to divine intervention. Some consider it separate from acts of nature and being related to fate or destiny
Christian theologians differ on their views and their interpretations of scripture. Some say that God causesa disaster: R. C. Sproul speaks of Divine Providence: “ In a universe governed by God, there are no chance events ” Others indicate that God may allow a tragedy to occur. Yet others just accept unfortunate events as part of life and reference Matthew 5:45 (KJV): “for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”
A Romanian prisoner, identified as Pavel M, serving 20 years after being convicted of murder, filed a lawsuit against the Romanian Orthodox Church, as God’s representatives in Romania, for failing to keep him from the Devil, essentially stating that his baptism had been a binding contract. The suit was dismissed because the defendant was neither an individual nor a company, and was not subject to the civil court of law’s jurisdiction.
Ottawa—Relying on the unusual legal doctrine of “force majeure,” which makes contracts unenforceable when they can no longer be performed due to an act of God, Air Canada claims that the recent war in Iraq is forcing them to layoff 3600 employees, some of whom have guaranteed job security in their collective agreements.
"The outbreak of war confirms our pressing need to achieve our target of $650 million in labour cost savings in addition to the job reductions announced today," said Robert Milton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Air Canada. "I regret the impact of this decision on the many loyal employees affected but we need to accelerate our transformation into a leaner, lower cost carrier."
As a result of the anticipation of war in Iraq and the alleged existence of a "force majeure" situation, Air Canada has been progressively adjusting capacity over the past several weeks in view of reduced demand. Recent capacity reductions, says Air Canada, are equivalent to the removal of 18 aircraft from service in March and 35 aircraft in April and May of 2003.
But, the Canadian Autoworkers, which represents about 600 of the 3600 workers Air Canada plans to layoff, says the no layoff clause in their collective agreement must be respected. “We expect Air Canada to negotiate a solution . . . and not to layoff one of our members,” said Gary Fane, the union’s director of transportation, calling for meetings with Air Canada.
“Air Canada’s attempt to claim ‘force majeure’ to avoid the obligations of a collective bargain is unusual,” says Jorge Talbott, an Ottawa labour lawyer. “It remains to be seen whether an act of God will provide much of a defence in front of the Canada Industrial Relations Board.” ( con’t.)
