It is not news to anyone ten years old, or older, that the United States of America was attacked by Satan on September 11, 2001, when so-called radical Islamists flew two planes into the World Trade Center in New York City and a third plane into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., costing the lives of many innocent victims. It was by the grace and mercy of God and the bravery of the passengers on the fourth flight-turned-bomb who sprung into action and crashed that plane into a wooded field in the hills of Pennsylvania, sacrificing their own lives to save countless more.
In the days that followed, workers searching for victims through the rubble of the World Trade Center came upon a cross created when two steel cross timbers of the building were miraculously welded together by the finger of God. The Cross in the Rubble brought great hope, encouragement and even inspiration to those thousands who so selflessly dug through the debris, hoping to find survivors.
This miraculous cross held so much symbolism that it was placed in the museum of the World Trade Center as a reminder that God is with us, even in times of tremendous disaster. Today there is a fight over that cross which became the symbol of hope. It seems that cross is causing the atheists of the area to have headaches and indigestion; some even proclaim mental anguish. Isn’t that amazing? Something these poor cross-eyed people don’t even believe in can cause them so much distress.
Why is it that atheists, who loudly proclaim “there is no God” are so intimidated by a cross? If they don’t believe in God, then how is it the cross, which is associated with the death of His Son, can cause them so much anguish? If there is no God, then why can’t they just ignore the cross, or for that matter, anything to do with God such as the Ten Commandments, prayer in public, etc.
No God? No problem? Why is it then, that this God who doesn’t exist in their minds, can cause them so much anguish? I wonder, are they confused? Or do they really believe and they are afraid of the awesomeness of this God?
My uncle, a marine during WWII, always told us “their are no atheists in foxholes!” Perhaps a few of these atheists should go fight for this freedom they are trying to deny for the rest of us. Maybe they would come to a better understanding of The Cross!
As for me and my household, we vote for The Cross. Leave it up and leave it alone. If it bothers you, then just leave.
