Why did terror strike America?

Posted By The Foundation for American Christian Education, Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Thirteen years ago on this day, Americans watched in horror as two buildings exploded into flames, the result of a terror attack on the Twin Towers in New York City’s financial district. Then, in unbelief, we witnessed an attack on the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and mourned the crash of Flight 93 as brave individuals stormed the plane’s cockpit to prevent the destruction of more lives.

Terror struck the heart of our nation and the openness, trust and many liberties, as we knew them, crumbled before our eyes just as the Towers. America would never be the same.

Even today, many Americans question how such attacks could have been executed so swiftly in the heart of some of our largest cities. How could such evil penetrate the veil of protection our nation has so long enjoyed?

What is the answer?
The answer to these questions is very simple. The loss of our Biblical character and understanding of our Christian form of government and law has weakened America from the inside out.

From America’s Christian history we learn:

In order to protect our nation and our liberties, we must restore our national character. From the moment of the founding of the first colony on America’s shores, many battles have been fought, blood shed and lives given to obtain and protect liberty.

However, the real war is a war of philosophies—worldviews—raging continually in the minds and hearts of men, many whom would be patriots but for the loss of principles.

Liberty, like conscience, is both internal and external, the external expression fully dependent upon the internal principle.*

Remember with humble gratitude
Today, as we remember the tragic events of 9/11, let us honor those who lost their lives by acknowledging with humble gratitude God’s blessing and goodness on our nation. Let us work to return to the Biblical and republican form of government that our Constitution guarantees. Only then will we be safe and free.

*From The Christian History of the Constitution of the United States of America: Christian Self-Government, compiled by Verna Hall.
