There’s too much defeatism out there. Too many Christians carrying on like the battle’s lost already, bad guys win, nothing we can do about it, etc. Like they forgot the nooze media never tells the truth and purposely tries to demoralize us so Democrats will win… and maybe they’re starting to believe the lies, half-truths, exaggerations, and minimizations that we’re all bombarded with all day, every day.
Are we not servants of the living God, Jehovah, who made the heavens and the earth? Is our faithfulness dependent on our worldly success?
“But what do we have to fight with? They’ve got the media, they’ve got the schools, they’ve got Hollywood, they’ve got wealth and power and are unrestrained by any moral considerations–”
We have resources, though.
*Our brains–surely we are equal to the task of coming up with difficulties that will confuse and exasperate the enemy, even as he confuses and exasperates us. They’re supposed to be The Smartest People In The World–and look at them. If we can’t outsmart a mob of useful idiots with degrees in Gender Studies, we deserve to be conquered.
*The truth–we have the truth and they don’t. We should lose no opportunity to proclaim it. Yes, they’ve paralyzed the world with some shallowly convincing lies–think “man-made climate change” and “systemic racism”–and they have the pulpits and megaphones with which to preach them every day. But if they were so sure of their hold on everybody’s minds, would they still be fighting so hard to establish it? Put truth up against their lies and see who wins.
*We have recourse to prayer, and they don’t. What–are they going to get on their knees and pray “O God, help us to promote abortion?” Or any other one of a myriad of evils they embrace. God hears the prayers of His people, but the prayers of the wicked are an abomination to Him.
Here is where we are tested, here and now, where the rubber meets the road. Are we servants of God, or just hangers-on? Do we trust in God or don’t we?
These are the days of Elijah.
Pray harder, sing louder, and proclaim the truth. Christ already has the victory, and we are His people. Ooh-rah!
