Some thoughts after another year from 9/11/2001:

Looking at the horrifying sight of death and carnage, I was tempted to think, the devil was victorious! It seemed that Satan was in complete charge. BUT... a small voice in my heart reminded me... When Joseph was stripped of his coat "of many colors" and sold into slavery in Egypt, do you suppose he might have thought evil was victorious!? When he was falsely accused and thrown into prison did it seem G-d was nowhere to be found? Later, we
would find out things are not always as they seem!
Later to his brothers he said: (Genesis 50:20: As for you, you meant evil against me, but G-d meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to SAVE many people.)

The attack on the World Trade Center was an act of unspeakable EVIL, what kind of "Faith" calls the slaughter of innocent people "an act of righteousness" ???????? Where was G-d? But, to much of the world, the World Trade Center was a towering sign of American arrogance and materialism, a "tower of Babel" as it were, in a city that has mocked G-d. No doubt it was a sobering and humiliating experience for America! They way it "came a tumbling down" was prophetic! When it occurred, did Americans flock to the biology classes to find the answers in a better understanding of evolution? Or… did we gather at our Houses of Worship? We can only hope that we in the good ole USA will take notice of some warnings and promises…

Hosea 4:6: MY people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have REJECTED knowledge, I will also reject you, That you may be no priest to me. Because you have YOUR god's law, I will also forget your children.

Hosea 4:10: They will eat, and not have enough. They will play the prostitute, and will not increase; because they have abandoned giving to the Lord.

2nd Chronicles 7:14: if MY people, who are called by MY name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

As our nation continues the long and difficult struggle with world terrorism, remember the words of Abraham Lincoln, in another dark time in our history: he was asked "is G-d on our side?" He replied "the question should be my friend, are we on G-d’s side?"


Is Islam: A faith in the process of being highjacked?
The question to ask the great Islamic nations of the world is this… "Are you letting your faith be highjacked by a band of extremists who plan to crash it into the world tower of civilization in a bloody fiery holocaust?" Does the great Islamic faith teach that the mass murder of innocents by suicide is a "righteous act?" This may be the most important question the history of Islam, and maybe the world. What will their answer be?
