As America remembered the attack just one year before on 9/11/2001, the focus was on the heroes of that event. But, Dr. D. James Kennedy noted, there were also villains who will get little notice. Nor will God.
Too often we forget the hand of God in the events of history. Yet throughout the Old Testament records we see that God used the nations surrounding Israel to carry out his judgment upon them.
All of the Founding Fathers of America strongly believed in the overriding providence of God, yet today America is ignoring his invisible hand and the chastening of God that America received on 9/11 appears to have had no effect. “We have plunged deeper and deeper into the mire of sin and iniquity.”
The tide of American culture has not turned in repentance back to God. What will it take for America to do so, asked Dr. Kennedy, as he gave a challenge to pray each day for the Church and the nation.
