“God is not mocked.” Gal 6:7
But seemingly He is.
- The Democratic Party booed God at their national convention in 2012
- Students at Columbine High (CO) were asked if they believed in God before being shot and killed by a couple of their classmates
- Athlete Tim Tebow was relentlessly vilified and ridiculed for publicly expressing his faith in Christ
There are just a few examples off the top of my head. You might think of others as well.
“God is dead.”
So declared Friedrich Nietzsche in the latter part of the 19th Century. How wrong he was, he quickly ascertained one second after his death.
And those who would pick up Nietzsche’s declaration today are wrong as well. The more man attempts to stamp out and kill the Christian faith, the more it grows and multiplies. It’s like a harried man trying to stomp out a fire, only to have three or four pop up in its place.
Let the mockingbirds sing their anthem. We, whose faith is minimized, marginalized, maligned, and worse – are praying for their souls.
