Except the LORD keepeth the city

Roman 13:7  Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

    The reason I am able to be on my computer today researching these facts and sharing is due to the American men and women who have given up their lives for my freedom of speech today.  I don't want to remove the horror of losing any American lives here on our own soil.  Each family has had to mourn their unexpected losses.  I would like to ask two questions though, where was God on September 11, 2001?  Nearly 3,000 people were killed in the terror attacks at the World Trade Center, at the Pentagon and in an additional plane crash in Pennsylvania.  On any given workday, up to 50,000 employees worked at the WTC, with an additional 40,000 people passing through.  Could this be anything less than a miracle from God.  In addition to that miracle each of the four flights that day were carrying significantly less than a full passenger load.

   How could a gracious God allow such a disaster?  As already stated, nearly 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001. The same day, nearly 3,200 babies were aborted, according to statistics collected by Created Equal.  The pro-life group says that while 9/11 was only one day in which 3,000 out of the 50,000 workers in the World Trade Center were killed, abortion takes the lives of more than 3,000 people every single day.
When you total up all forms of abortion, including those caused by the abortion drug RU 486, the grand total comes to more than a million abortions performed in the United States every single year.  The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of U.S. military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.  If you have ever had an abortion I do not wish to offend you, God's love and forgiveness are available to cleanse you from the wrong.  I only want to bring to the forefront what our priorities in America should be.  How could God bless such a nation that does not protect lives of all it's citizens.

Psalm 127:1  
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: 
except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
