Hello everybody. Hopefully you can help me. As I wrote in my welcome post I'm into Victorian era and currently I'm writing a story (historical fiction) about cholera outbreak in London 1854. I've few questions about God's punishment and sin in your religion. Main character meets during cholera outbreak a woman who claims she's right hand of God and she caused this epidemics. That all London residents are evil and sinners and all should die. Because London is a modern Babylon (common view in 19th century). My main character in only 9 years old and she becomes scared of sin and hell. Especially after meeting that women who says that e everybody should die. My character goes to uncle who's vicar in St. Luke parish (Soho), he's based on real character of Henry Whithead. And she asks him if it's possible if God can punish by killing hundreds of men with other human hands. If that lady said truth and everybody should die. And what about children, are they sinners too? So my question is, what could uncle say about her concerns? I hope you can help me. I want this story to be not only historical accurate but generally right with all facts.
