    Isn't that going against God's will? If God wanted to help people in Oklahoma, he wouldn't have curbstomped their asses into oblivion.

    God destroys town, kills and injures multitudes. People send them prayers. That's like asking al qaeda to help the victims of 911.

    Anyone can die at any time

    Anyone can have extremely traumatic events occur at any time

    Anyone can be hurt at any time

    Be aware of these truths and live your life accordingly

    The flaw in your question is He is able to do one and not the other, or your moral code is somehow more dignified than that of an Almighty God

    Of course He would be able to both reign death and destruction from above, as well as bring cures, healings, and blessings
