"It is unfortunate West Virginia has faced so many d~sasters in the past few years, but we have learned how to react. Thankfully, FEMA also has responded quickly," Wise said. "'We need to work to help the tamilies and businesses who were hit by this flood." The FEMA Individual Assistance Program can include temporary hous- ing assistance and housing repair; U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) low-interest disaster loans for indi- viduals, renters and businesses to re- pair or replace damaged property; di- saster unemployment assistance; and grants for serious needs and neces- sary disaster expenses not met by other programs.

A lightning boll striking someone was seen as God's direct act (primary cause), because forces of nature (secondary cause) were not understood. Nowadays we know na- ture has its own laws, its own ways of acting. A lightning bolt striking some- one isn't a directly sent action of God. It is an act of nature acting according to its own laws. God is behind it only in the sense that he established the laws of nature in na- ture itself. Applying this to the Mark 4 text above, we see that God didn't de- liberately block people from understanding the message. They didn't understand it, so that failure to understand was presented as God's purpose. Yes, even on the lips of Jesus we find such words. But we need not believe that Jesus actualty spoke those words. Mark is the human author here, and he doesn't write under di vine dic- tating. He writes about events in the life of Jesus 30 years earlier, and de- scribes what he knows did occur (fail- ure to understand) as coming from God...again, because he didn't under- stand primary and secondary causes!
