Vanity Fair's vilification of the Christian

"Then I saw in my dream, that when they were got out of the wilderness, they presently saw a town before them, and the name of that town is Vanity; and at the town there is a fair kept, called Vanity Fair.....the way to the Celestial City lies just through this town, where this lusty fair is kept; and he that will go to the city, and yet not go through this town, 'must needs go out of the world.' "

In John Bunyan's literary classic, The Pilgrim's Progress, "Vanity Fair" is symbolic of the greater secular world. Its hostile inhabitants signify those persons who rise up against the sincere testimony of them that walk by faith. If all is well, we will be bold in our report and may even encourage a few followers along the way.

We travel the desperate path less taken. It is a divinely inspired way that goes against all carnal sensibility. We are not so much willingly led; rather, we are driven there. The fire and the light exposes our fruit and reveals our faith. A mustard seed is all it takes.

A pure preaching of the word is bound to produce conflict. Prepare yourselves for the coming disdain. Stand your ground and remain faithful. God alone removes all guilt and shame.
