What If You Had Been Here?

Yes, the Fellowship Tract League was not above using the horror of 9/11 to push their agenda. This tract is offensive by its mere existence.

Saying the usual stuff about how you are a sinner who needs to repent, this tract starts by asking the title question - what if YOU had been in the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001? "You would have gone to Heaven or Hell forever."

Wonderful. So the families of people who lost their lives in the attack are told that their loved ones might be burning in Hell, if they weren't Christians. This has to be one of the most insensitive things I've ever read. What's next? Are they going to do a tract about New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina? Or how about the tidal wave that hit Indonesia?

I'm so mad at the makers of this tract. I mean, just look at the cover - you can see the second plane exploding! Honestly, how low can you go? Sadly, this tract might just end up converting a few people - fear can have that effect. If you find this tract, burn it. It deserves the very Hell it suggests the 9/11 victims went to.
