You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001. Neither will I.
I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say "Good-bye".
I held his fingers steady as he dialed.
I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK... I am ready to go."

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he really wasn't coming home that night.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help, for the very first time in her life.
"I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said. "Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now."

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls.
I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven.
He heard my voice and answered.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken.
I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith has saved them.

I was in Texas, Kansas, London... I was everywhere.
I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.
Did you sense Me?

I want you to know that I saw every face.
I knew every name - though not all know Me.
Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.
Some sought Me with their very last breath.
Some couldn't hear Me calling to them through the smoke and flames; "Come to Me... this way ... take my hand." Some had never heard my voice before. And a few chose, for ! the final time, to ignore Me.

But, I was there.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me?

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you.
But someday your journey will end.
And I will be there for you as well.
Seek Me now while I may be found.
Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go"

...I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.

Okay. So how is it you know that this is true? If death is what brings salvation, why don't God kill us all now? More importantly, why did he create us in the first place?
Don't give me the s**t about "God has a plan and he knows what he's doing."
How would you know this is true? It's nothing but a postulate. And if you notice, all those people who do illegal things because they say "God told them to," are all treated for mental instability. Why aren't all Christians goign through therapy you ask? Because they are not doing any serious harm to other humans.
The terrorists themselves on the four hijacked planes claimed to have heard God's voice, and it was that voice which told them to kill the "infidels". So if they saught God's voice and heard it, would that not mean God was behind the entire disaster? If they were dilusional when they heard the voice, wouldn't that make it very likely that every person on earth who believes in God and heard his voice delusional?
