NOT FUNNY

In light of the many perversions and jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke, it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?". Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said, "I believe 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 He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?" In light of recent events...hurricanes, terrorists attack, shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body finally found) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school . the Bible 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). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK. 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." Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to h__l. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Are you laughing? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Reading this gave me something to think about and it made me remember the various posts where people were upset because of the slight mention of His name. A question was asked... if God loves us why does He let bad things happen to good people. Its sad, but in some instances, the good suffer with the bad, simply because if we don't speak up, we are consenting to whatever its that is not the will of God. ( Not yelling) THIS IS BY NO MEAN TO START A FUSS AND IS NOT DIRECTLY ONLY TO NON BELIEVERS, BUT ITS TO GIVE EVERYONE SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT INCLUDING MYSELF. THANK YOU.

Maybe she posted it here because she knew that many people would read it. And that was her main agenda.

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Isn't that the truth! The great lord is ALWAYS there at your door you just have to open it and let him in. But he will never knock, He simply waits for you to come to him. He ALWAYS hears your prayers and he gracefully answers each and every one of you, you just simply have to have patience and listen to when he speaks to you. He may not always answer you right when you want him to but he will when the time is right. everyone open your doors and hearts and let him in. He has never left your side so why turn your back on him.

Looks right..., but I don't believe in "God through e-mail"

I think people are turned off because our supposed Christian president is a war monger and because most of the NRA's members are Christian and that just doesn't fit with "Thou Shalt Not Kill" Personally, I'm tired of the Hypocracy, maybe my friends are, too. That is why I would never forward this type of e-mail. I also happen to believe that moral children can be raised without spanking (I'm okay with mild spanking). I also do not send lewd and vulgar jokes via e-mail. I can't think of very many people who are examples of God's love, even the ones who claim to be aren't close. I do not get upset about the mention of God. I'm perfectly fine with it. I have been raised by Christian people AND I believe in free speech. Just thought I'd drop in and tell you why I'd never forwardthis e-mail. Thanks.

thanks everyone for ur comments, sorry I couldn't respond sooner. Yes, I put it here because I knew a lot of people would read it and I thought it was something to think about, cause it made me think. For some of us is bedding time and for some its the dreaded 2ww, but here's hoping for BFP's this month!!!! Baby Dust to everyone!!!:)

 

I think it is great!!! - October 6

Sooo true!!!! God belongs in everything, no matter what God you believe in. Our society should be ashamed. I feel that things happen out of circ_mstance, but we shouldn't prevoke, good or bad, you know?? It is kind of like how we need to rid the world of bad people, child molesters, kidnappers, and rapists, I could go on-but we flash s_x around like it is nothing.....why do we bait the hook and turn our backs??? Because we are blind now, God has been removed and we have nothing to follow, no guidelines, just our own morals (if we have them) and sometimes that is just not enough.......soo sad......
