WASHINGTON, Sept. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- Rev. Rob Schenck, founder of the Capitol Hill Christian ministry Faith and Action, is commemorating the fifth anniversary of 9/11 with an article that asserts the attacks violated God’s moral law. On his blog the Evangelical missionary writes, “In less than one hour, the world-wide terrorist machine managed to violate virtually every one of the Ten Commandments.”
Schenck discusses how the actions of the 19 hijackers and the ideology that drove them to fly planes into the World Trade Center, Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania is contrary to the principles espoused in laws God handed down to Moses on Mt. Sinai. One by one, he shows how the disciples of Osama bin Laden violated those laws.
Schenck also notes the nexus of politics and religion that occurred on that September morning five years ago writing, “It took 9-11 to reintroduce the word "evil" into the American lexicon.” Schenck points out that although polls have consistently shown that an overwhelming majority of Americans believe in God and heaven a large portion of them dismiss the idea of Hell and the Devil.
The Ten Commandments are the cornerstone of Faith and Action’s Christian ministry in more ways than one. Schenck is involved in defending public displays of The Ten Commandments across the country and recently won a significant battle against the Washington, DC city government. Local officials demanded that a marble display of The Ten Commandments that Schenck installed in the front garden of the Faith and Action headquarters be removed under threat of fine or property forfeiture. Schenck’s refusal to submit to what he believed to be an unlawful infringement of religious freedom resulted in the removal order being rescinded.
