The world is like it is, Because WE said OK...
This is not intended to be a joke, it's not intended to be
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?" (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11).
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...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. - I
think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered,
her body found recently) she 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.
Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline
our children when they misbehave. 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, 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
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. 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. 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 further again by
making them available on the Internet. And we said OK; they're
entitled to free speech.
Then the entertainment industry said; let's make TV shows and
movies that promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. 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, nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right
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 hell. 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
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.
Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard
it...no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought
process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the
world is in!
