THE TRAGEDY OF THE SODOM AND GOMORRAH FIRE IN MAUI is That Children Who Had Not Participated in the Abominations of Sodomy/Homosexuality Suffered Because of the Sins of the Adults. Maui boy, 7, is found burned to death in a car as local lawmaker says she fears HUNDREDS of children may be dead after power cut kept them home from school on the day of the fiery inferno.
Daniel Whyte III, President of Gospel Light Society International, says God is extremely lovingly, merciful, and gracious beyond measure. However, because God loves His creation, He will at times inflict gruesome punishment upon His creation because of their gross sins to save His creation. He will use one or two cities as an example (Sodom and Gomorrah, or LAHAINA, HI, and PARADISE, CA) to save thousands of cities of millions of human beings. Our loving Father God will also chastise those who believe in Him but who are disobedient to Him because He loves them and wants them to love Him back and show their love by being obedient to Him. And in case you are wondering, God does not mind taking innocent children out of hell-hole situations home to Heaven with Him because the pain is on the wicked parents, not on God. After all, He knows where the children are; they are safe and sound with Him.
- Fears are growing that a large number of the Maui wildfire victims are children
- Many children were at home on the day of the fires after power cuts on the island closed schools, prompting fears some may not have escaped the flames
- The death toll is currently 111 but a lawmaker said she expects the final figure will be in the hundreds
A seven-year-old boy has been found dead in a burned out car in Maui amid fears children will make up a large number of those who perished in the devastating wildfires.
The death toll from the fires increased to 111 on Wednesday night but lawmaker Elle Cochran, who is in the Hawaii House of Representatives, said it could grow to hundreds as search operations continue.
Cochran fears many of the dead could be children because many schools in Lahaina, the historic town that has been ruined, were closed on the day of the fires due to power outages. A lot of children stayed at home while their parents were at work and might have been trapped and perished.
A kindergarten teacher in Lahaina said that a seven-year-old boy – who is the cousin of two of her former students – was found dead alongside his family in a burned out car.
Jessica Sill, who teaches at King Kamehameha III Elementary School, told the Wall Street Journal: ‘Our parents work one, two, three jobs just to get by and they can’t afford to take a day off.
‘Without school, there was nowhere for [kids] to go that day.’
Public schools on Maui have started the process of reopening and traffic has also resumed on a major road, in signs the painful recovery process is underway.
At least three schools untouched by flames in Lahaina, where entire neighborhoods were reduced to ash, were still being assessed after sustaining wind damage, Hawaii Department of Education superintendent Keith Hayashi said.
‘There’s still a lot of work to do, but overall the campuses and classrooms are in good condition structurally, which is encouraging,’ Hayashi said in a video update.
‘We know the recovery effort is still in the early stages, and we continue to grieve the many lives lost.’
Elsewhere crews cleaned up ash and debris at schools and tested air and water quality.
Displaced students who enroll at those campuses can access services such as meals and counseling, Hayashi said. The education department is also offering counseling for students, family members and staff.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency opened its first disaster recovery center on Maui, ‘an important first step’ toward helping residents get information about assistance, FEMA administrator Deanne Criswell said.
At a news conference, Herman Andaya, Maui Emergency Management Agency administrator, defended not sounding the sirens during the fire.
‘We were afraid that people would have gone mauka’, he said, using the Hawaiian directional term that can mean toward the mountains or inland.
‘If that was the case then they would have gone into the fire.’
