With that in mind, I wanted to share that with you too. Here's August's newsletter which was sent to our Family, Tribe, and or Fellow Workers. Who are they? Click here.
Dear Kingdom Warriors, August 1, 2021
Greetings in Jesus’ name. Behold the insanity and the glory, the foolishness of the woke as compared to the wisdom of God. Charles Dickens penned the phrase, “It was the best of times and it was the worst of times.” The story he wrote was about 1775 in the context of the French Revolution. What a contrast when you compared France with America. France choose to reject God and embrace the age of reason (man), whereas in the United States, God was honored.
A John Piper article from the Desiring God website referred to Dicken’s quote and observed who was alive and active when Dicken’s authored that famous quote. He notes that in 1859 (just prior to the Civil War), Charles Spurgeon was 25, George Miller 54, Hudson Taylor 27, Charles Darwin was 50 and Friedrich Nietzsche was 15. Truly this was the good, the bad and the ugly; yet glorious history that followed.
As I reflect upon this year thus far, I can’t help but think of what I’ve observed. On one hand the “woke” crowd is going more insane. Follow the science cry the ones who abort babies screaming “my body my choice,” when in truth there are two bodies. Now when they try to force everyone to get the vaccine, “my body my choice,” which is actually true as it pertains to this situation, is ignored.
