Two articles on lewrockwell.com today, highlighting two aspects of current spiritual reality in the world.
One of them, “A comment on comments” by Bionic Mosquito, says that Christians need to urgently set priorities and put their theological differences to one side:
I am sitting on a few comments to the recent posts that focus on the coming apart of Christendom, and am not sure I will post these. I am finding these destructive, not constructive. I do not like the mudslinging between traditions.
We need to concentrate now on the common enemy, for
. . . the world is coming apart, and our liberties are being crushed – and this has accelerated in the last twenty months. Only one institution can turn this tide [he means the universal Christian Church], and the vast majority of the official representatives of this institution have failed completely – if not, in fact, are in service to the enemy.
There is a remnant, to be found out of each tradition, that sees and understands this. The battle this remnant faces is captured in Ephesians 6:12, and I have best described it here.
In other words: We, the Remnant, need to hold together, whatever our other differences, in the face of the rising chaos instigated by the spiritual enemy.
The other, “Have we finally reached peak Davos?“, by Thomas Luongo, appears to see some light at the end of the chaos tunnel we are currently in, even though he makes it clear that he thinks the chaos will first deepen before things get better.
So, let’s start with the obvious. Places like Austria, Australia, and even Italy will not go along with [tyrannical Covid measures such as a vaccine mandate]. The sizes of the protests grow daily and as the desperation on both sides grows any further attempts at control will be met with violence, regrettably.
He thinks that the current attempt to create a “New World Order”, to unite the world under one government ruling a population cowed by the fear of death to follow the orders of a supposedly benevolent elite, is finally cracking:
Have we reached Peak Davos? I think we have but that doesn’t mean things get better from here, only that this is as much pressure as they can bring to bear and it will either work or it will be clear that it will fail, albeit very messily.
In this context, it is worth quoting Ephesians 6:12 here:
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
