So many troublesome things are happening in 2022 that it’s often hard to raise our eyes and see God at work.
But three recent Supreme Court decisions are great cause for joy:
- Striking down the New York concealed carry law (2nd Amendment right to bear arms),
- Affirming religious liberty (Coach Joe Kennedy praying at school), and
- The Dobb’s decision striking down Roe v. Wade.
These stand out as bright rays of sunshine and wonderful answers to prayer, perseverance, and maybe a turning of the cultural tide.
Especially the defeat of Roe v. Wade–on June 24, 2022.
After forty-nine long years, life wins.
One of the greatest problems in our rapidly changing world is finding the truth due to government coverups, Big Tech censorship, and the erosion of biblical principles.
Fake News is becoming the norm.
Starting with virtuous hearts, we must personally turn our attention to the mind. 2 Peter 1:5 tells us:
“And to your virtue, add knowledge.”
How do we find truthful knowledge in a era of deception?
There are many priorities this decade that demand our attention and prayers. Fulfilling the Great Commission has remained God’s paramount priority for the past 2000 years because it’s the command of Jesus that will bring the greatest good to the planet–now and in eternity.
We could also list issues like abortion–the great sin of shedding innocent blood (Proverbs 6:17). This quiet slaughter of over one billion innocent children worldwide in the past three generations certainly qualifies as paramount in the eyes of God.
But I’m thinking of another problem I never saw coming in the United States and world until just a few years ago. This issue may greatly impact the other two.
The silencing of free speech.
