In the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, we wrestled with the age-old question: Why does God allow so much evil in the world? Twenty years later, we continue to ask: Where was God on September 11, 2001? I believe he was where he has always been: with us.
In the 20 years since 9/11, every country on earth has faced many trials and hardships. Terrorists or natural disasters or pandemics may open gaping wounds and inflict great pain. But, as Christians, with the Psalmist, we can say, “Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me” (Ps. 66:16).
In the days after 9-11, Chuck Colson offered an incredible gift to God’s people: A Christian worldview framework for understanding what had happened and a roadmap for Christians to both speak truth and love to their neighbors. Colson warned against out-of-control anger and against seeking revenge instead of justice, in both our personal and national responses.
