CLARITY – 2-21-18 Last Hope

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 2-21-18

 

Last Hope

What’s Happening:  “In a ‘State of Hungary’ speech from Budapest,  President of Hungary Viktor Orban called Christianity Europe’s last hope. He was, no doubt, reacting to the loose immigration policies of France, Belgium and Germany as Islam slowly takes over demographically (https://www.usnews.com/news/world/articles/2018-02-18/hungarian-leader-calls-christianity-europes-last-hope?platform=hootsuite). Hungary may seem insignificant and Orban’s voice small, but global forces of tolerance and self-determination seem to be governing in the U.N. and almost everywhere.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “And I don’t even own a burka!”

 

Biblical Response:  “There are a whole lot of things that will change (other than clothing) if we have a world with an Islamic consensus (owning clothing in vogue with the culture will be the least of your worries).. Western civilization was built on a Christian consensus (granted, there are assumptions that are not profitable for individual evangelism, but there are cultural advances that are its result, too). The lie that makes all this possible is that allah and Jehovah are just different names for the same God.”

 

“Christians? If “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32), a lie will enslave you. Don’t think there’s any difference between allah and Jehovah? You obviously haven’t read the Koran or studied history. Sure, we’ve made mistakes…sometimes glaring ones (the Crusades come to mind), but much good has been done, too (hospitals, schools, and feeding programs, etc.). As the bumper sticker says, “Christians aren’t perfect, just forgiven.” Besides, Mohammed didn’t rise from the dead, Jesus did. I have no doubt Christianity will win out in the end, I just hope we don’t have centuries of repression and domination to overcome.”

 

Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, may Viktor’s plea be heard and heeded…before it’s too late; in  Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
