Uhhh, let's clear up a misunderstanding here.
God is not killing us. We die, because of our decisions.
That traffic jam on the interstate? Had we been a bit earlier that day, we would have been sideswiped by that truck. It was going to happen, and not because of God. It was going to hapoen because that trucker was pulling all-nighters . That trucker was pulling all-nighters because their boss decided to get greedy and push their deadline forward.
All these chains of decisions, God knows about and tries to prevent. God isn't trying to smite us. We are disobedient (mainly because we aren't certain what God wants, so it's impossible to please him) and run into trouble.
Death happens because the world needs to teach us that life is precious and we must make the most of things (above all people, I do not practice what I preach in this regard; this is why I'm preaching it, so you can gaib the benefit of my failure), and not spend our lives playing video games (like I said).
Well, what about those floods or earthquakes killing people? One, catastrophes are a means of making people band together. A natural disaster tries to kill as few people as possible, but the purpose of misfortune is that trials test us and bring out our worth. This is discussed in Paul's or Peter's letters (can't keep straight who wrote what). We are on this Earth to learn and grow, and people die because of bad decisions. Building houses near fault lines, too close to water, or in a tornado alley. Using substandard materials. Stuff like that isn't God's fault. It's OUR fault.
