Via Sunshine Mary, and some links she has, I read Donal Graeme’s new series. He’s pretty accurate as to the mess the West has found itself in in the fourth or fifth generation after the elite abandoned Christendom, But a remnant remains.
You Are Not Alone.
There are others out there like you. Others who want to live a Godly life, who want to find a Godly spouse, who want to start a family and raise Godly children, who want their children to have a future worth living. You are not alone. As always, God has reserved a remnant for Himself.
Now, at first glance, the obstacles between us can seem daunting:
-Great physical distances separate those of us who share these beliefs. The closest person might live in another town, another state or even another country.
-To reveal our true beliefs can imperil us and our family. The wrong words uttered to the wrong person can see us lose our reputation, our job, our family or our freedom.
-The Church is as often as not a foe as it is a friend. False teaching and doctrine has wormed its way into all denominations, and many of those who claim to speak the word of God act as though they were possessed by the lying spirit which came upon the prophets in the days of Ahab.
But all is not lost, because the very medium through which you are viewing this message also contains the solution to our problems. The Internet gives those of us in the remnant a means of reaching out to one another. Through it we can communicate, we can coordinate and we can plan. Thanks to the Internet we are not as isolated and alone as the surrounding culture would have us believe.
My gloss on Donal is that we have to expect corruption within the church, for many who “preach the gospel” — from the time of the apostles — have done it for selfish gain, and there have always been false teachers, who as Paul said, use comforting words to assuage the guilt of the foolish.
But we need to keep on linking to each other, and quoting each other, and encouraging each other.
