Just after 9/11, Billy Graham’s daughter, Anne, was interviewed by the Early Show on CBS. The interviewer asked, "How could God let something like this happen?"

She answered, "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, our government, and our lives, and being the gentleman that He is I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and protection if we demand that He leave us alone?"

Isn’t it strange how the world trashes God and then wonders where He is when trouble comes?

(From a sermon by Jerry Shirley, Jephthah for President, 3/5/2010)
