NBC Interview With Ann Graham, on the 9-11 Incident

This is an archive, but worth learning from…

 

 

NBC’s interview with Billy Graham’s daughter Ann Graham:

 

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 have been a lot of e-mails going around in regard 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 a 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 OK,

they’re entitled to their free speech.

 

And then 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,

it has no adverse effect, and nobody takes it seriously anyway,

so go right ahead.

 

Now we’re asking ourselves why our children have no conscience,

why they don’t know right from wrong, and why it doesn’t

bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

 

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out.

 

I think it has a great deal to do with “WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.”

“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 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.
