God gave us free will; this is our right to choose. He is not pleased with the ugliness and harm that comes from this, but it is part of the course unfortunatly. The one thing he promises on such things, is that he will extend his vengence.
Evreything happens for a reason even though something bad happens it happens for a reason even though it's a bad reason something good comes out of it he does things in ways we cannot understand one real life thing that happend was my step dad was accused of charges even though he didn't do it but while he was in jail he started to believe in god and had a better connection with him before he was a lying swearing and a regular man now hes a tottaly different person
God allowed this to happen for the same reason Superman allowed it to happen. And the reason they both allowed it to happen is because we have crazed people on earth, that seem to have a warped view of politics and religion.
September 11 was a terrible day. Sin reared its ugly head and caused great devastation. However, God is still in control. His sovereignty is never to be doubted. Could God have prevented what happened on September 11? Of course He could, but He chose to allow the events to unfold exactly as they did. He prevented that day from being as bad as it could have been. Since September 11, how many lives have been changed for the better? How many people have placed their faith in Christ for salvation as a result of what happened? The words of Romans 8:28 should always be in our minds when we think of 9-11, "And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, and are called according to His purpose."
Why do we need a analytical answer to things I call the mysteries of God? I just believe that God makes no mistakes and it obviously was the time for those victims. You know for a while it brought the world together! For a few hours everyone was filled with comrade' we loved each other brought together by a tragedy everyone was filled with love and compassion hugging and crying together whether we were black Or white we were American with a common enemy and we suffered with those families as though they were our own. Compassion was every where then as time began to heal we all went back into our own worlds.i never felt such love and sorrow before nor since. I don 't know why a loving Father would allow that, I can't let that stop my love for God or following His Word. We are merely flesh and blood we will never know all. He has done too much for me personally that nothing can sway me if I knew what He knows than I would be God. Go figure
The funny thing is that it happened due to the actions of Gods followers in his name. Muslims attacked because we support Israel. We support Israel because some Americans believe the Jews need their homeland. These americans believe so because god said so.
God is not a puppet master. He gave us free will. But free will applies to everyone or no one. Which mean we are free to choose God or to choose Not Him. Which means people can choose to do goid or do bad. The thing all choices have consequences. Some bad and some good. We might think why doesnt God stop bad stuff like terrorist. To us its bad and evil. But in some places what they do is right and goid bevcause they believe WE are the enemies of God. Men we see as evil made their choices using the free will they were given. The consequences were tragic. Because of sin and evil in thecworld sometimes innocent people suffer in the consequences of other peoples bad choices We think God should step in and stop our enemies every time they plan something evil. So should He also step in and stop our troops every time we bomb a Taliban stronghold? From their point of view we are the evil enemy? What about closer to home - should God step in and control you when you want to lie to get out of something or yell at your sibling or gossip about someone or say something hurtful to someone or want to fudge a bit on a test? God provided free will for ALL, good or bad. 9/11 was the horrific and tragic cinsequences of men who ultimately chose Not Him.
I agree with most of the answers. Its free will. But everything happens for a reason in my opinion. Nothing happens without god willing. Whether he did this to test us or for whatever reason he obviously has his own plan for us.
Because god has always been the weaker and most incompetent of the fathers to have saved his children. Let's see: --1. If god knew it but didn't stop it then -- he's BARBAROUS. --2. If god knew it but couldn't stop it then -- he's IMPOTENT. --3. If god knew it but let it happen then -- he's SAVAGE. --4. If god caused it or endorsed it then -- he's a TYRANT. --5. If god didn't know it then -- he's NOT GOD. You choose.
