Finally, The Truth on National TV

Billy Graham's daughter was being interviewed on the Early Show and
Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?"
And 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?"

I know there's been a lot of an email going around in regards to
9/11/01, but this really makes you think. If you don't have time, at
least skim through it, but the bottom line is something to think
about....
In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.
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
.
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 someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women
and call it wholesome, down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of
the
female body. And we said, OK.

And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and
published pictures of nude children and then stepped further still by
making them available on the Internet. And we said "Dear God, Why
didn't you save the little girl killed in her classroom?" Sincerely,
Concerned Student..
AND THE REPLY
"Dear Concerned Student, I am not allowed in schools". Sincerely, God.

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

Funny how 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?

Funny how 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.

Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me
than what God thinks of me.

Are you thinking? Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then
just discard it....no one will know that you did. But, if you discard
this thought process, then don't sit back and complain about what a
bad
shape the world is in!
