In Tragedy, America Has Turned To God

Editor:

On Sept. 11, when America watched the terrorist strike at the World Trade Center, America turned to God in prayer like they never did before. In the days to come this nation will need the protection and help of almighty God like never before in history. But is there one thing that we have failed to do? The word of God tells us what we must do in II Chronicles 7:14: "If my people, which are called by 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."

Have we in America turned from our wicked ways? Each one of us must search our hearts and turn from our wicked way, and turn to Jesus Christ for he alone can make us free. John 8:36: "If the son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."

But in this nation, many unborn babies are killed each day. The Supreme Court made abortion a legal sin of the nation.

Can we expect the help and protection of God and continue to kill innocent unborn babies?

God said (Ex 20:13) "Thou shalt not kill." Will the Supreme Court continue to ignore God? There can be no freedom without God.

May it be written down in history that the American people, with almighty God, won the victory for freedom. God healed our land.
