A Letter to God:
Where is God the people say - how could He allow those things to happen at Columbine, Santee, and Alabama??

Here's a letter to God by a student who wonders about these recent events too...

Dear God:

Why didn't you save the school children in Littleton, Colorado and Santee, California?

Sincerely,

Signed,

Concerned Student



Dear Concerned Student:

I am not allowed in schools.

Sincerely,

God


Interesting isn't it - we push God away from our lives then complain and wonder where he is when something terrible happens.  It can't possibly be our fault, it has to be His.  How incredibly arrogant we are to think it was someone else's fault.

Read how pushing God away has unfolded in an incredibly short period of our lives...:

Let's see...it started with Madeline Murray O'Hare complained that 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, yeah...

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.

And we said, an expert should know what he's talking about so we won't spank them anymore...we'll just let them do what they want.

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.

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, that's a grand idea...personal choice without responsibility is what its all about...

Then some wise and learned 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, yeah why not, boys have no control over themselves and they certainly can't be held responsible for their actions with all those hormones raging...

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

And we said, it doesn't matter what anybody, including the President, does in private as long as we have jobs and the economy is good...

then someone said we should be able to 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, "first amendment rules!"

then  someone else took that appreciation a step further and published pictures of nude children and then stepped further out of line by making them available on the Internet.

And we said, at least is wasn't my kid..."they" should do something about all that internet porn.

And 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", and "its just business",  and it has no adverse effect and nobody takes it seriously anyway, so knock yourself out, go right ahead...

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, why teachers have to listen to four letter words spewing from the mouth of babes, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, classmates or even themselves.

Well...if we really put our minds to it, we might be able to  figure it out. 

Remember that big black book under  your coffee table - that's right, the Bible - it says - "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."  That pretty much sums it up...

There is an entire generation that has been lost to morality and the finger doesn't point to God, it points to us for being apathetic.

It's not somebody else's job to worry about this - its ALL of our jobs to worry about this now.

Are we supposed to end this by making you feel good - by somehow making you think it was someone else's lack of conscience or oversight? 

Don't count on it...
