We don't see too much of Kirk Cameron anymore. He's well past his teen idol days and now only speaks up when he has a God-fearing message to share—like this week.

With Harvey in the recent past and Irma now bearing down on Florida, he said hurricanes are for "humility, awe, and repentance."

Cameron is a former child actor who is mostly known for his role as Alan Thicke's son on Growing Pains. He married young, to former costar Chelsea Noble, and they have six children, with four of them being adopted.

In his adult years, he founded a ministry with Ray Comfort. He has held religious debates, distributed religious literature, and spoken up against homosexuality. His latest films have been documentaries and/or Christian-themed.

He is now opining his Christian views regarding hurricanes, believing they are messages from God.

"How should we look at two giant hurricanes coming back to back like this?" he asked in a video on his Facebook page. "Do we write them off as coincidence? Do we write it off as a statistical anomaly? Wow! Who would've thought? Is it just Mother Nature in a bad mood?"

He instead referred to a quote from the "Old Testament Book of Job." The passage spoke of storms that were created by God for "punishment" or as a way to "demonstrate his faithful love."

"When he puts his power on display," he said, "it's never without reason. There's a purpose. And we may not always understand what that purpose is, but we know it's not random, and we know that weather is sent to cause us to respond to God in humility, awe, and repentance."

He believes when children ask about the storms, we should tell them they cause "us to remember that it's God who supplies our life, breath and everything else so that you and I reach out to Him."

"Remind them that God is the blessed controller of all things," dictated Cameron. "He is the one who gives us peace, security, and strength in the midst of the storm and that he uses this to point us to him and to his care for us."

However, Cameron recorded this video from the airport as he was fleeing Orlando.
