Where was God during 9/11

Extracts from this document...


Where was God on 9/11? 'Where was God on 9/11?'-A pretty fair question to ask. After all, what could possibly be more important to an 'all-loving', 'all-merciful' God, than preventing the deaths of over 2000 of His children? Though I'm sure, that for some of you here, the events of 9/11 were all the proof you ever needed to confirm the fact that there is in fact no God, many believers believe other wise.

  1. Good and Evil

    Almost 1,000 homes were destroyed or left uninhabitable. In minutes, homes and businesses which represented lifetimes of work were left as matchsticks, guarded by lonely water pipes clanking upright in the breeze. Families away from home for the evening pulled into their driveways in the post-midnight quiet and looked into the black space where their homes had been.

  2. Truth and unconditional truth

    Nevertheless, agreeing with either of them is incorrect. Even if no one knows the absolute truth, it still does not change no matter who acknowledges it. The truth is some place out there, and it is our job to stumble upon it.
