One of Christendom’s most gifted theologians, R. C. Sproul died in December of 2017
In February of 2018 our nation lost the world’s most prolific and powerful evangelist, the Reverend Billy Graham.
The following year we lost our most renown apologist, teacher and theologian Norman Geisler, co-founder of North Carolina’s Southern Evangelical Seminary.
The man considered to be a walking Bible; Dr. Jack Van Impe also left this world in January of 2020.
Finally, in may of 2020, just days ago, we suffered the loss of one of the world’s most beloved preachers and defender of the faith, Ravi Zacharias
Surely, we lose many good preachers, prophets and messengers on a yearly basis whose names not many will ever hear of; while the aforementioned seem more prominent. They serve to remind us that God’s best comes through to us for a segment of time, and then, we must respond and seek others to follow in their paths.
But in today’s climate of apostasy and falling away we don’t see as many stepping up to the task.
Some of the youngest in Christianity have slid to the outer regions in what is known as the doctrine of hyper-grace. which is an emphasis on grace so strong, that even present and future sins are so covered there is little to no need to repent.
This is not just nonsense theology – it is deadly.
Now there is an ever-burgeoning list of names among Christianity’s contemporary performers, artists and preachers who are being sucked into the LGBT indoctrinating vortex. A huge cross section of historic denominations has been deeply deluded, diluted and deferred by the world, to the point of no return.
During the Covid-19 pandemic we have begun to hear the cry of America “coming together.” It should be noted that this push to re-Americanize has mostly to do with the return of commercialism, jobs, sports and entertainment and the pursuit of commonly shared pleasures.
As the disease of apostasy falls on the great Church of God – shouldn’t we also be calling to re-Christianize?
Where is the call to return to the faith of our fathers and the word of our Almighty Father?
Will the church vanquish evil or verify evil with dialog, tolerance and compliance?
Stand up, stand up for Jesus,
The strife will not be long;
This day the noise of battle,
The next the victor's song.
To those who vanquish evil
A crown of life shall be;
They with the King of Glory
Shall reign eternally.
George Duffield Jr.
The apostate church has been toppled by a feather and while the world may laugh at the phrase “Christian soldier” – God is not laughing; he is waiting for us to offer him our best.
We have little excuse for a wholesale apostasy. We have a great ancient cloud of witnesses and today we can now add the names of those mentioned here.
The call is upon us, the power to march is promised and the hour is now.
“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” (Hebrews 12: 1-4)
