This is a time of Remembrance—remembrance of a Day we will never forget. . . .
We like to think that “time heals. . .” But we seem to need something more than time. We need answers. . . .Why, Lord, why?
“Where was God on September 11th?”. . . .
As Christians we ask, What does the Bible say? Asking this question should reveal that we do believe that God exists. . . By asking where was God, we’re not trying to judge God. Rather, we hope to share with each of you the satisfying answers we have found in the Bible.
In this tragedy, the questions came: “Why?” “Why did God let this happen? “Did He know what was going to happen?” Did He hear the cries of the victims? Or their families who ask, “Lord, why didn’t you stop it?” “Why Lord, Why?”
Some have suggested that God was desperately trying to keep as many people as possible off those planes and out of those buildings. I don’t thinks so…If he were he failed….Some—or many—of you may have known a victim who died on September 11th. Many noble people and heroic firemen and policemen died that day—but were all of them Christians? Certainly, we don’t think that those who died on that day did something wrong to deserve to die that day. . . . Nor do we think that those who were spared were in some way better and more deserving of life.
