If we are not careful, we can find ourselves drifting into a state of despair when we observe the landscape of American Christianity. I remember reading the article about Joshua Harris, how he no longer considered himself to be a Christian, and instead opted out of his marriage and his role as a father, and instead jumped on the bandwagon of lustful living  A man who authored many very well known titles such as “I Kiss Dating Goodbye, and Not Even a Hint,” a book dealing with the topic of lust. The last thing I heard of Joshua Harris was that he was seen at a homosexual function eating rainbow donuts. Then Covid hit and the whole Woke thing hit, and cowardly compromising pastors seemed to pop up everywhere. Then thousands of churches began shutting their doors frightened they would get this virus and spread it to others. For some of them it was nothing more than making a political statement, and being a part of the frenzy.

Then many well-known, and well thought of pastors began to crumble and crash underneath this idea of woke-ism and anti-white-ism. Men like Paul David Tripp, While most of Tripp’s books are extremely well written and very useful, his decline into the whole Woke movement leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Another pastor by the name of David Platt comes to mind. A preacher that seemed to start off well, but began to shift quickly into the rhetoric of today’s BLM and Woke ideology. Then there’s Matt Chandler and his latest demise along with Tim Keller, The list goes on, there are many others, but they are not all just woke related, but severe doctrinal errors, moral issues, sexual sin, etc…

But there are those who remain faithful. Faithful to God’s Word and its authority over the Christian’s life. We are not ones to be bewitched or deceived. In Mathew 24:24, it says, “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

Also, Romans 11:2-4  says, 

God has not cast away His people whom He foreknew. Or do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he pleads with God against Israel, saying, 3“Lord, they have killed Your prophets and torn down Your altars, and I alone am left, and they seek my life”? 4 But what does the divine response say to him? “I have reserved for Myself seven thousand men who have not bowed the knee to Baal.” 

It seems like Elijah was bordering on the edge of insanity when looking at the state of God’s people when he cried out to God, he felt all alone. So, what is the answer?

Do we continually look at all those around us who are falling like dominoes and allow fear and despair to creep in?

No, we look to Christ and His unchanging Word. We find our solace and peace and trust in the Lord of all. We also must recognize that we are not alone. First of all, we have Christ, and second, we have the church. No matter how awful things look, the Lord always has a people that have not, nor will bow down to the world.

Be sure to stay in God’s Word, and devour the bible. If we do this prayerfully, the world and all of its disappointments will not devour us!
