This is an e-mail I had gotten a while back and
I thought it would be worth while to put it on my site.
In light of the many perversions and jokes we send to one
another for a laugh, this is a little different: it's not intended to be a joke, it's not funny, it's intended to get you
Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show
and Jane Clayson's asked her "How could God let something like this happen?"
(regarding the attacks of 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 have 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 attacks, school
shootings, ect. I think it started when Madeliene Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained
she didn't want prayer in the schools, and we said OK.
Then somone said you better not read the Bible in school...
the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, thou shalt love thy neighbors as thy self. 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 commited suicide). We said and expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.
Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no consicence,
why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, classmates, and themsleves.
Probably, if we long and hard enough, we can figure it
out. I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW".
Funny how simple it is to trash God and then wonder why
the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspaper says, but question what the Bible says.
Funny how you can send jokes through e-mail and the spread
like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar, and obscene articles
pass freely through cyberspace, but public disscusion of God is supressed in the school and workplace.
Funny how when you foward 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. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.
Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then
just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what
bad shape the world is in!
So what do you think? Are you laughing
