SUBSTITUTING LIGHT FOR DARKNESS

Thanksgiving is never over, but stories in recent days are reminiscent of Halloween.

Did you see that the American Family Association is now considered a hate group?

The Southern Poverty Law Center also added the Family Research Group to the list.

Or how about the German government publication that promotes pedophilia?

In an article responding to the German publication, Canadian author and public speaker Michael O’Brien said, “State-encouraged incest, which in most civilized societies is a crime.” The development is, he suggests, a natural outcome of the rejection of the Judeo-Christian moral order.

I could not agree with Mr. O’Brien more.

A quote that resonates with many in the Bible believing community is found in an article about a recent gay-rights vote taken in Ohio.

“There is a sense of inevitability of moral standards diminishing that is frustrating for many,” said the Rev. Scott Estep, pastor of a popular Bowling Green church, Dayspring Assembly of God.

The assault on Christian morals brings to mind many scriptures; this one in particular:

Isaiah 5:20
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

Christians are living in challenging times.

Psalm 37:39
But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble.

What a comfort the Word of God is.

I hope you’ve got your own copy.
