I often hear Christians very proudly say that God sunk the Titanic because days before its first voyage a White Star Line employee boasted ‘God himself could not sink the ship.’ and the name Titanic derives from “Titan” a name for giants born of gods in Greek mythology and it was blasphemy. I have heard even seasoned preachers and pastors with years of experience in ministry shouting the same from rooftops. I strongly disagree because it contradicts God’s Word and betrays His character. Here’s why?
