“Hell in Haiti” is the headline this morning.

“The hospitals cannot handle all these victims,” Dr. Louis-Gerard Gilles, a doctor and former Lavalas senator, said as he helped survivors. “Haiti needs to pray. We all need to pray together.”

How many times have Americans begged for that when tragedy strikes?

Yet when quiet, peaceful times slip through, that call to prayer is forgotten—except for the anti-God evangelists. They up their antagonism against God by threatening to secularize the nation.

They despise “In God We Trust” as our motto.

They want to erase “under God” from the pledge of allegiance.

They got prayer out of public schools.

And so forth.

However, as history moves on, another tragedy hits and people reach up to God. They say something like “our prayers are with you.” Sometimes they even interview clergy to ask their spiritual opinions on the situation.

One cannot get rid of God. God created all things. God still oversees the spiritually fallen planet, Earth. God will have the last word concerning this planet’s existence.

This God appeared in Jesus. Jesus offered redemption for the genuinely repentant. Jesus even gave His own life as a sinless substitute for our sins.

However, He came unto His own, but His own received Him not. And so the world continues to hate Jesus, except for the righteous remnant who have discovered in Him their salvation.


No matter what the anti-God voices scream, they cannot rid the world of its Creator God.

Now Haiti is shocked by a devastating earthquake. And with that the cry goes out to pray.
