Surveying the moral chaos and economic dislocation of our time, it’s easy to lose heart. But don’t do that.
In “Lurching from Crisis to Crisis,” Mark Rushdoony explains the pattern: “It comes from man playing god,” he says–men who “become blinded by raw power.” And yet the things they claim to be able to do–they can’t! “Our institutions, our social order itself, is a house built upon sand.”
As bad as it is, Mark writes, “It will not last.” The Holy Spirit will intervene, and bring down the curtain on this festival of apostasy.
Pray He acts soon.

At the appointed time, God will call a halt to madness, but before He does, He will give everyone a chance to wise up, understand the times (as the sons of Issachar) and repent. His mercy is great, but He does set a limit.
When it comes to the coronavirus, we need to pray that as it has come in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.
Look at the orators in our republics; as long as they are poor, both state and people can only praise their uprightness; but once they are fattened on the public funds, they conceive a hatred for justice, plan intrigues against the people and attack the democracy. —Aristophanes
