Panic Podcast: Psalm 119, Part 11

It’s the middle of the week, and what a week it’s been in Virginia. We were talking in church a couple of days ago about the weird times in which we find ourselves living. Between the lock-down and the looting, we are witnessing the “days of evil” Paul wrote about. We Christians have a golden opportunity to do two things. First, we should take note of the behavior of the majority of the population versus how believers should conduct themselves. Friends, we are witnessing what happens when fear and ignorance take control. If it seems to you like the world you used to know seemed to change over night, you aren’t alone. I used to wonder how the great “falling away” spoken of in Revelation could happen so quickly. I don’t any more. It’s been eye opening to watch how fast citizens have been surrendering their rights to the State without even questioning, not only the legality of the various mandates, but the reasons behind altering normal human behavior.

The other thing I’ve noticed is how easily it has been for the State to change the way the Church is supposed to fulfill its mandate from God just because they said it should. Members of the early church were martyred, not so much for their beliefs, but because they wouldn’t stop meeting together. And yet, here we are, two millennia on, witnessing a majority of churches blindly following a questionable mandate from the State to do just that, stop meeting together. Way too many believers followed the fearful, ignorant majority even after it became obvious that there was no science behind what they had been told to do.

If there’s ever been a time when Christians need to know what they believe and actually practise what they believe, it’s today. Folks, I foresee a great purging taking place within the Body of Christ. Many church members have gotten out of the habit of attending services, and I wonder if we’ll see them coming back en mass? Time will tell. I also wonder what new hoops the State will expect the Church to jump through in the future. We’ll see.

I say all this to say that we believers have a once in a lifetime chance to lead the way; to show others what a Biblical worldview looks like. It’s time, past time really, to take our faith seriously, regardless the cost. It’s time to ante up and be the separated people we’re supposed to be.

End of rant.

My Conservative Identity:

You are an Anti-government Gunslinger, also known as a libertarian conservative. You believe in smaller government, states’ rights, gun rights, and that, as Reagan once said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’”
