Q. “If God does not judge America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” I’ve heard this attributed to one of the Grahams. But God is not mad at mankind during the Church age, right? The angels told the shepherds this at Jesus birth. Also, I agree with you on the author’s misuse of 2 Ch. 7:14 but was he correct on the judgment issue with 9-11?
A. I’ve heard the comment about God judging America attributed to both Billy and Ruth Graham. When I checked with their ministry a few years ago, I was told neither one could remember who said it first.
The Lord’s birth was intended to bring peace between God and mankind. But Ephesians 2:1-5 says we have to accept His death as payment for our sins to benefit from this. Those who reject it remain His enemies by choice.
I think “The Harbinger” makes a very good case in support of the view that 9-11 and subsequent events were warnings from God.
