As impeachment-mania rages in the mainstream media in the United States, and as President Trump counter punches Joe and Hunter Biden with allegations of nepotistic corruption in Ukraine and China, I hear some voices in the background.
They are extremely agitated, cunning, reckless, and running scared.
There are other voices I long to hear, but in today’s column I will focus on the background wails that seem to be rising in the United States and all over the world.
I hear a cry of desperation.
You may have heard of reverse mentoring.
It happens when younger folk teach us older people how to do something–usually with technology (because they know more about it).
Today I want to reverse teach–that is, take something that is often hurtful and use its example for good.
A well-known news broadcaster often talks about the negative influence of the “machines” in our modern world. He’s referring primarily to cell phones–which are becoming powerfully addictive.

This week’s savage attack on Christians in Sri Lanka is a sobering reminder of Satanic brutality in our world.
That hatred has always been present–since the serpent deceived in Adam and Eve millenniums ago.
But, with nearly eight billion people alive today, 2.5 billion identifying as Christians, the global amplification of the media, and Christ’s return possibly on the horizon, persecution appears to be increasing.
Will it get worse? Is revival coming? Or both?
What should we do when we see the face of Satan rising?
