Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan’s vision of a “summer of love” has become the summer of hate.
I don’t think she gets it (or maybe she does).
Anarchists have burned and looted Portland for eight weeks. Seattle is still on fire. In other Democratic-run cities, chaos and destruction become normal and commonplace.
Because of double jeopardy and the sins of a falling nation.
It’s quite apparent that the Western World and its apex–the United States of America–is engaged in a cultural civil war. I have written numerous pieces on this subject and was among the first to call attention to the fragile state of Western Civilization.
Most civil wars aren’t quick–they take years to play out and only one side wins. This one will be no different except for one enormous detail.
This culture war is all about God.
There have been many plagues during the past seven thousand years of recorded history. The Bible mentions them nearly 100 times and their effect upon both individuals and nations (e.g. Deuteronomy 28:59, Hosea 13:14, and Revelation 16:9, 18:4).
One person even wrote a song about it (Psalm 91).
More songs have been written about Jesus Christ and his resurrection than any other subject in history. This Sunday billions of people will celebrate His victory over death–even while a plague stalks the planet.
Here’s some encouragement from the Plague Psalm and Easter hope.
