Where was God when the shooting took place?


OTTUMWA — God was not made welcome in our schools. He was shunned. Communication with Him is refused. It is unlawful to pray in school. A little girl was expelled from school for thanking God for her lunch. The Ten Commandments are banned, and a little boy was sent home because he had something on his shirt that referred to Jesus. Bibles are banned from schools. God has been kicked out of schools — so where was He that day in Connecticut? Where would you be if you were God? But He wasn’t far away to comfort and heal broken hearts.

God said “If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land (II Chron. 7:14).”

People of God, pray and seek Him! And may God save America!

“The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10).” We cannot blame God for what the enemy does. God grieves with us.

Grieving with America.
