There are many events that impacted history over the past four thousand years. (Creation scientists calculate 4128 B.C. for the earth’s birthday.)
Some of those events were disastrous. Others changed the world for good in varying degrees.
One could easily make the argument that Good Friday–when Jesus died for the sins of the world–stands out as the greatest event of all time.
But I still believe the resurrection tops the list.
After a short delay, the State of the Union address will take place in Washington, D.C. tonight. I will comment on President Trump’s view of the nation in future articles as well as the Democratic response by Stacey Abrams.
Ms. Abrams is the failed gubernatorial candidate from Georgia. Her and Trump’s views of America are polar opposites–a replica of the worldview battle taking place in the Western world between radical secularism and mainstream biblical values.
Social media and the twittersphere will probably explode after both speeches. Which brings me to an interesting question.
Is social media a slight preview of judgement day?
Some years ago I read an article in which George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilization, was asked a critical question: “What is the greatest NEED in the world today?”
Verwer replied: “Spiritual revival in the church.”
In the next two articles I’d like to flip that query around and ask a second question for those of us who live in the 21st century: “What is the greatest PROBLEM in the world today?”
Spiritual deception–and its temperature is rising.
