According to the NIH director and his institution BioLogos, Christians should should pledge their allegiance to masks, vaccines, racism, and discarding conspiracy theories.....Another case of someone using the Lord to fit their agenda. What about those concerned Christians who are showing charity and love for neighbor by considering that not everything is as it seems. What about those of us who look at the whole picture instead of obsessing over a virus with come to find out, a very high recovery rate? Are we not doing the will of God? What about those of us who do not feel we can be a part of a medical treatment that uses aborted babies? Is that not Christian of us?
Lebanon seems to be constantly in the news over the last couple of months. First due to an inevitable famine caused by economic hardships, then because of the terribile explosion in Beruit in early August that wiped out 85% of their grain supply, and now another fire. Lebanon is also notable in scripture. I believe we need to start paying attention to the signs of the times!
I came home from Iraq in 2010 at the age of just 20 years old. like many of my generation, I struggled for years with trying to find my place in the world (sometimes with disastrous consequences). I often felt restless and that everything I was ever going to do paled in comparison to the war I had just been a part of. Oh how wrong I was. The Lord in all of his mercy woke me up to the fact that the most important battle I will ever fight is one that can't always be seen; The one for my soul and for the souls around me. It is against powers and principalities who influence the earthly enemies I had just encountered. Over the last 5 years or so, I have become intimately aware of this battle, and more importantly how to fight it! Although the weapons are different, the concepts are the same. My mission is now to share my knowledge with others, especially my fellow combat veterans who are struggling in the midsts of dysfunction or an identity crisis. I assure you brothers and sisters, we are in the fight of our lives.
