Here’s some good news that hasn’t been, hasn’t ever been, shouted from the housetops by our Free & Independent Nooze Media Inc. R.J. Rushdoony reported on it back in 1994, and it has only grown since then: the movement to set up home churches and Bible study groups.
Since Rushdoony wrote this, we’ve acquired an Internet, social media, and blogs–like this one, for instance: places in cyberspace where Christians can gather to worship God, study His word together, and seek to know Him better.
We’ve also acquired more enemies, censorship, soft-core persecution (they aren’t throwing us to the lions in the arena yet), and a hysterical Far Left that would like nothing better than to stamp us out.
And yet we grow!
God has not forgotten us, He has not abandoned us–and He will hear our prayers.
Mark Rushdoony has an answer for those who look at the state of the world, despair of the gospel, and say “Just look around you.”
All right: look. “Yet what do we see each Christmas? The world must stop and recognize the impact of Jesus Christ on history.”
It’s a short little essay, brief but to the point. For me to say more would spoil it.
Well, okay, there’s still some electricity in Caracas–but only enough to keep the finest restaurants open to their richest and most powerful customers. Somehow socialism always looks like that.
Here in America, we have our own socialist parasites to contend with.
Lights Out—For Socialism
But there’s hope. Contrary to what we’ve been hearing 24/7/365 from the nooze media, Hollywood, the public schools, and the fat-heads of the academic world, Christianity is not dying out. It’s getting stronger.
Bad, bad news for the Climate Cult…
Mark Rushdoony wrote this post last year for the Chalcedon blog. It grows more relevant with every passing day.
Christianity is the world’s fastest-growing religion–and that by the purposeful act of conversion, not by birth rate. And meanwhile, the institutions of secular humanism, throughout the Western world, are crumbling. When it comes to Darwinism, atheism, Climbit Change, and all the rest, they just can’t seal the deal: there’s more skepticism of their de luxe fun-pack now than there’s ever been.
So this is a cheer-up piece–enjoy it!
