Can anyone explain why God allowed 9/11 to take place? How could he just let those innocent souls (his children) die such a horrific death when he could have stopped it?

The same he allows all bad things to happen in this world. It happened for a reason that some of us may have not figured out yet. try and learn something from it like how to lend a hand to someone in need.

Crazy that is one of the dumbest excuses i have heard as of yet and trust me I have heard some doozies. You say some of may not have figured it out yet. Then just who has figured it out? And how do you lend a helping hand to a child when he knows his father either jumped 86 floors to his death or burned up alive? I mean how is that a lesson to be learned?

I tell you what if there is some hippie looking dude living in the sky who wears a white terry cloth bath robe then he has a wicked sich sense of humor. There are all aorts of ways to teach one a lesson other than disasters!

Go back to the drawing board and come back with something else.

Its something I don't understand either and probably never will. Why does God, who is all powerful, not prevent bad things from happening in the world. Perhaps its the down side of giving man a free will and the choice to do good or right. But then again, that doesn't explain natural illnesses and disasters that have been killing and injuring us for centuries.

What people seem to forget about is the divine gift of free will. God gave us a plentiful, regenerative world to live on. But since exile from Eden we have been free to make our choices and live with them. You can't begin to understand everything.

Because there is no god you moron. Atrocities go on every minute of everyday that make 9/11 look like a kindergarten sandbox.

Then if you believe there is no GOD, then why would you be commenting on the question? Why would you be telling some one something about a GOD who you say does not exist?? You are a funny little character and you make me laugh oh'so much.

one of the many lessons learned is dont take things for granted. another would be live life for today not tomorrow. lending a helping hand would be if you see someone freezeing give them a blanket or a coat. donate to the local charities and homeless shelters or food drives. there are many lessons to be learned not just for the victims of that day but for everyone!

Israel is a Jewish country in the middle east. Their biggest enemies are Syria, Iraq, and Iran. Hmmmm. We already went to war with one of these countries, and our politicians are CONSTANTLY talking about going to war with Iran and Syria they have been for ten years. Now factor that in with the BILLIONS we send Israel EVERY year for defense despite them having literally hundreds of nuclear weapons and a highly advanced military. HMMMMMMMMM.... Do you think it is possible that something might be up here? Oh, also nearly everyone in Hollywood, actors, producers, directors, are all Jewish. You would also be surprised how many of our HIGH RANKING government officials are not only Jewish, but have dual citizenship between the US and Israel. That is not a conflict of interest? Hmmm.... And I am hateful I suppose and also racist for noticing this?

9/11 happened because of a republican President that ignored 8 reports from the CIA. One report was personally handed to Bush on his Crawford Ranch while he was on vacation for a whole month. After being handed the report by a CIA agent Bush was quoted as saying "You can go now. You have successfully covered your ass". Each report contained information about Bin Laden and plans for his terrorist group to kill Americans in America. Bush ignored each one of these reports. The last report on August 26th 2001 caused Bush to release a statement. The statement reads "This administration believes that Bin Laden is a Rouse. The REAL issue is in Iraq. President Bush was trying to figure out how to go to war with Iraq before 9/11/01 actually happened. It was more important than protecting thousands of Americans.

God had nothing to do with STUPID POLITICS that caused this tragedy. Only the BUSH and REPUBLICANS are to blame. Read the report if you do not believe this post. It is all in the report. Actual facts of how 9/11 happened. JUST READ IT!

My friend you have to understand God promised us free will upon the earth, and it is completely up to us what we do with it. Some live a devout life to christ and some become suicide Bombers. But God promised us freewill and said he would never super naturally intervene because we as humans could not mentally understand it or comprehend which leads to another promise from God that he would never give us more than what we could handle
Bush was the man

The real truth

The real truth is that you are an ignorant fool to believe such nonsince. President Bush will go down as the best President this nation has even seen. As soon as the left wing kool-aid drinking kooks such as yourself die off.

Read the book, "The Harbinger," by Jonathan Cahn. It will explain everything. It's not that long a book, and it is some very interesting reading. The first chapter is not interesting, but necessary, I guess, to the rest of the story. You can buy it for a fair price at Wal-Mart.

21,000 children under the age of 5 die everyday. That's 911 X 7 everyday.

Unluckily for them, most of the 21,000 don't live in the USA so you don't constantly hear about it.

God lives in a shoe box under my stairs and I'm not letting him out till he says he is sorry and cleans up his mess.

God does not allow things to happen, God has given us FREE WILL to rule and reign on this Earth. By his own promise to us God is not allowed to supernaturally intervene. When things go good for you, do you thank God? If not dont blame God when things go bad. Its this simple if you work for God he will work for you

It is the selfishness of this human race that is gonna cause us to destruct. It is time to get back to the old ways, It is time for people to start caring for each other again, after all thats why we are here, to love and to be loved. God does not cause wars, God did not cause 9/11, it was the selfishness of about 10 taliban, who could not think about anything but themselves. People if we do not get back to the old ways, when there was actually love in this world, we will go down, because God is Love and in him is NO hate, if we cannot love one another, how can we expect God to love us. If we cannot forgive one another, how can we expect God to forgive us?
