America's Lonely Grinch...Why does this shock me?
Did you hear about this today? I'm not at all surprised, but I'm still shocked. It's scary to me, quite honestly. I don't want to be Debbie Downer, but this story just sounds like an invitation for God to deliver His justice to our nation.
According to Fox News, the American Humanist Association unveiled a new $40,000 advertisement campaign which will appear on buses in Washington, D.C. through December. "Why believe in a god? Just be good, for goodness' sake" it says. Whoa. Does anyone smell spiritual warfare in the heavenlies?
Two quotes from this article struck me as interesting...
"Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion." Agnostics, atheists and other non-theists feeling alone, eh? That breaks my heart, and I'm sorry. I know the feeling...Christians sometimes feel lonely during the holidays, too. But here's the difference...we are not alone. We have a Friend who sticks closer than a brother who longs to be our comforter and companion at all times. He also supplies us with true companions through other believers. To the agnostics and atheists, please give Him a chance. He wants to stick close to you, too.
"we are trying to plant a seed of rational thought and critical thinking and questioning in people's minds." This reminds me of another seed of "rational thought" and "questioning" which was planted in someone's mind one time. That little seed was planted in a beautiful garden, and we all continue to reap the harvest of that little seed. That truly has the thumbprint of Big Red all over it.
What to do, what to do? Christians must put on the full armour of God and be aware of the spiritual warfare around us. We must repent of our sin, call on God, and pray for Him to heal our land.
Merry Christmas, everybody!!!
