A photograph taken underwater that shows a ship that has sunk beneath the water's surface.

It is quite common to come across Christians who proudly assert that the sinking of the Titanic was a deliberate act of God. Their claim stems from the fact that just days before its maiden voyage, an employee of the White Star Line, the company that built the Titanic, arrogantly declared that not even God Himself could sink the ship. Additionally, they argue that the name “Titanic” is derived from the term “Titan,” which refers to giants born of gods in Greek mythology, and therefore consider it blasphemous. Surprisingly, even seasoned preachers and pastors with years of ministry experience can be found passionately proclaiming this belief from rooftops. However, I strongly disagree with this viewpoint because it contradicts the teachings found in God’s Word and distorts His true character. Allow me to elaborate on the reasons for my argument.
