We're Sure Gonna Be Missed

As we witness the apparent groundswell of opposition to Christianity in the progression of moral decay in the culture, be assured: they're going to miss us when we're gone.

I love the discussion that Abraham had with God on behalf of Sodom and Gomorrah and his nephew Lot. He asked God if He found 50 righteous souls there, would he spare it for the 50? And God said He would. And the negotiation got down to 10 righteous and still God was willing to spare the place for the 10. Abraham's logic I believe still holds true for today:

“Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” Gen 18:25

It is the voice of reason and resistance to evil that we believers contribute to society that has historically held evil in check. When we're out of the way, the liberals may think their solutions will now be free to press on to success, but will find themselves living in a world of their own making and it will be a very dangerous place to be.

Our opponents talk tough about their freedom to fornicate and sodomize and pass those morals onto children, but when we're gone, they're going to miss the security of tight knit families and the comfort of peaceful neighborhoods. Every home will have a security system as part of their monthly utilities. People will fear to leave their homes -- we're already seeing that now on a smaller scale.

And with us out of the way, God will be free to pour out His judgment. They don't want "In God we trust" on our greenbacks or the ten commandments on our courthouses - God will give them what they demand. And they will reap what they have sown.

In the meantime, let's keep being salt and light to the world, keeping our hand in the hand of the Master. All we can say to those who hate us is, "We'll be back!"

"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thes 2:7-12
