I fear for the future of authentic faith in our country. (William Wilberforce, 18th-19th century British activist)
Writing to his fellow Englishman, he continued, “We live in a time when the common man in our country is thoroughly influenced by the current climate in which the cultural and educational elite propagates an anti-Christian message.” Not much has changed in the intervening centuries, has it? All the more reason, then, that Christians must lovingly but courageously stand for truth.
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. (Ephesians 6:10-11)
