Why can't it be good to be alive?
I remember feeling great, just cuz I was alive, breathing,
free. Just cuz there was sky and people and food. I felt
awesome. I felt joy.
I want that back. What happened? What changes? Why these
Life is not the way is should be........ got this in a
"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?"
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
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 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
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,
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
"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
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 you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail
and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending
messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about
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.
Are you laughing?
Funny how when you go to 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 to them.
Funny how I can be more worried about what other people
think of me than what God thinks of me.
Are you thinking?
Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just
discard it....no one will know that you did. But, if you
discard this thought process, then don't sit back and
complain about what a bad shape the world is in!"
I agree w/ most of it... 95% I suppose.
