To all my brothers and sisters in Christ:

We need to spread the word. If we don't respond in outrage not just towards those servants of evil that did this, but to our country's responsibility in all of this... CRY FOR OUR NATION TO REPENT INCLUDING OUR SELVES... If we don't who will?

When Will America And The Church Return To Christ?

By Robert Behn

Today is an extremely sad day for America.... Today many innocent Americans and their families paid dearly because of the tragic terrorists' attacks upon the lives of innocent people. We as Christians can only feel grief for our nation--a nation that has turned its back on God and is now paying the price for neglecting the responsibilities that come as Christians. Pastors and priests have neglected to stand firm in the preaching of God's word from their pulpits, calling our nation to repentance for the sins it has and is committing. We the church have neglected to stand firm in the public square and have refused to follow Christ's examples. We have refused to throw the moneychangers from the temples, the schools, the civil government, our court system, news media, entertainment media, and most of all the church itself.

We as a nation have effectively removed the name of Jesus Christ and His teachings from our society. Christmas has become a winter holiday, Good Friday a day we kill unborn children, Easter an egg hunt, and our hearts a place where money is more important than life.

Upon hearing of this terrible tragedy and immediately going to prayer, our hearts were deeply saddened for this nation's inability to cope with God.

In Christ's place, we have permitted every filthy sin imaginable. From abortion, homosexuality, divorce, child sacrifice and any other perversion we can think of.

All of this has left us vulnerable to the evil attacks upon our lives and those of our spouses, siblings, children, and grandchildren. We can only pray a prayer of agreement with Nehemiah when he prayed for His nation. It is certainly appropriate for America today.

"Neh 1:1 The words of Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah. It came to pass in the month of Chislev, in the twentieth year, as I was in Shushan the citadel,
2 that Hanani one of my brethren came with men from Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews who had escaped, who had survived the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem.
3 And they said to me, "The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates are burned with fire."
4 So it was, when I heard these words, that I sat down and wept, and mourned for many days; I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.
5 And I said: "I pray, LORD God of heaven, O great and awesome God, You who keep Your covenant and mercy with those who love You and observe Your commandments
6 "please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open, that You may hear the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You now, day and night, for the children of Israel Your servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against You. Both my father's house and I have sinned.
7 "We have acted very corruptly against You, and have not kept the commandments, the statutes, nor the ordinances which You commanded Your servant Moses.
8 "Remember, I pray, the word that You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, 'If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations;
9 'but if you return to Me, and keep My commandments and do them, though some of you were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to the place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.'
10 "Now these are Your servants and Your people, whom You have redeemed by Your great power, and by Your strong hand.
11 "O Lord, I pray, please let Your ear be attentive to the prayer of Your servant, and to the prayer of Your servants who desire to fear Your name; and let Your servant prosper this day, I pray, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man." For I was the king's cupbearer.

I hope that this tragedy will serve as a wake up call for the church and Americans to return to the God who loves them, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

God's very best to you and your loved ones.
