Some Reasons Why God let the 9/11/2001 Horror Happen

Did you see where Billy Graham's daughter was being  interviewed on the Early Show
a few days ago about the September 11th terrorist attack and Jane Clayson asked her
"How could God let something  like this happen?"  Anne Graham gave an extremely
profound and insightful response. She said:

"I believe that God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for  years we've been
telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our  government and to get out of our lives.
And being the gentleman that He  is, I believe that He has calmly backed out. How can we
expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand that He leave us alone???"

Here are some other thought provoking thoughts on the subject that I received by E-Mail:
It was sent with no name attached.  I still think the message is very important though :)

"Let's see, I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body was found recently)
complained she didn't want any prayer in our schools, and we said OK.  

Then, someone said you better not read the Bible in school ... the Bible that says "thou shalt not kill, thou
shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself". And we said, OK.

Then, Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little
personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr.Spock's son committed suicide)

And we said, an expert should know what he's talking about so we said OK.

Then, someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our children when they misbehave.
And the school administrators said no faculty member in this school better touch a student when
they misbehave because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely don't want to be sued
(There's big difference between disciplining and touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.)
And we said, OK.

Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they want, and they won't even have to

tell their parents. And we said, OK.  So did the U.S. Supreme Court OK the murder of innocent unborn
children in Roe v Wade!!

Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys and they're going to do it anyway,

let's give our sons all the condoms they want, so they can have all the fun they desire, and we won't have
to tell their parents they got them at school. And we said, OK.

Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what we do in private as long as we do our jobs.

And agreeing with them, we said it doesn't matter to me what anyone, including the President, does in
private as long as I have a job and the economy is good.

And then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and movies that promote profanity, violence,
and illicit sex. And let's record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and satanic themes.
And we said it's just entertainment, it has no adverse effect, and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right
ahead; it's OK.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong,
and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.

I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."
Then there was the student who wrote

"Dear God, Why didn't you save the little girl killed in her classroom?"
Sincerely, Concerned Student
"Dear Concerned Student, I am not allowed in schools."

How simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.

How odd, how funny ??  READ ON!!! 

Funny we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny... how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything
             the Bible says.

Funny... how someone can say "I believe in God" but still follow Satan who, by the way, also "believes" in God.

Funny... how we are quick to judge but not to be judged. you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start
             sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

Funny... how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of God
             is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Funny... how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week.

Are you laughing yet??  Oh yes, There's More!! when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because

             you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them. I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me.

Are you thinking yet???"
