Anne Graham said in an interview on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her “How could God let something like this happen?” (Regarding the attacks on Sept. 11). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.
She said, “I believe 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 He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone? In light of recent events terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O’Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn’t want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.”
“Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school, the Bible says thou shalt not murder; thou shalt not steal, and to 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). We said an expert should know what he’s talking about. And we said 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 murder 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.”
Isn’t it ironic how we believe what the Newspapers and Media say, but question what the Bible says? Isn’t it ironic how you can send ‘jokes’ through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding God, people think twice about sharing?
Isn’t it ironic how barbaric obscene images and articles and lewd behavior pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace? Are you laughing? Funny how the people that discredit God and the Bible worship Satanism and want to remove your relationship with God and the country you live in.
Don’t sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in, get active in it recovery. No nation or it’s people can survive or succeed without God.
