The Answer

        We all are aware of terrible problems affecting our nation, our world, our cities and towns.  It is not "politically correct" to speak out the answer.  But how can we be silent when evil advances?

        Throughout the Bible we read about disasters, problems, and evil.  Here is just one verse that gives the honest seeker some thing to hold on to and to pray about:
        "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14.
        How can we "turn from our wicked ways"?  That means to own up to the fact of our sins and shortcomings, confess these sins to God, and receive His mercy and forgiveness.  "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16.
        Today is 9-11.  We have much to consider in the quietness of our own hearts.  Then we must reach out to each other and speak the truth of God's Word.
