Can it get any worse?

2 Timothy 3:1-5 Amplified Bible

“Difficult Times Will Come”

But understand this, that in the last days dangerous times [of great stress and trouble] will come [difficult days that will be hard to bear]. For people will be lovers of self [narcissistic, self-focused], lovers of money [impelled by greed], boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane, [and they will be] unloving [devoid of natural human affection, calloused and inhumane], irreconcilable, malicious gossips, devoid of self-control [intemperate, immoral], brutal, haters of good, traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of [sensual] pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of [outward] godliness (religion), although they have denied its power [for their conduct nullifies their claim of faith]. Avoid such people and keep far away from them.

Matthew 24:8  Amplified Bible

But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs [of the intolerable anguish and the time of unprecedented trouble].

I don't know about you, but reading the news headlines is mind blowing lately.

I will never again say: It can't get any worse, because when we reached a low, things are still getting worse by the week, or should I say by the day.

Some of the low points over the last weeks:

  • We are now in "pride" month. Who would have ever thought that sexual perversion is celebrated for a whole month.

  • Australia under the "leadership" of Anthony Albanese & Penny Wong voted in the UN for a Two State "Solution", which effectively is supporting Hamas

  • The weak & biased leadership of the 2 mentioned above is indirectly encouraging all the insidious protests around the country against Israel, who has like any other nation the right to defend itself against terrorists.

  • Last month at the UN & US Senate the had a moment of silence to honour the death of "The butcher of Teheran", honestly has the world gone mad?

  • The Au government & Biden's policies are uncanny similar: Unbridled immigration, bad economical policies, soft on crime. It seems somebody else is pulling the strings. Can it really be God's will that His children be silent at a time like this? It is time for battle, not a time for "fence sitting" & cowardice that masquerades as as godly meekness &  obedience. There are haunting similarities between today's "Western" church and the German church of the 1930's.  "Cheap grace" has taken the spiritual vitality of millions of Christians.  Paying lip service to the Gospel, they shrink from resisting the evils of our time.  As Bonhoeffer & other heroes of the faith insisted; the church has a vital role in the culture & condition of a nation.  It is our  duty to fight the powers of darkness, especially on behalf of the weak & vulnerable. Silence is not an option. God calls us to defend the life of the unborn, to confront the lies of cultural Marxism, and to battle the globalist tyranny  that crushes human freedom.
