One soul saved is better than one vote cast.

Having now lived in the States for over 30 years, I am just as dismayed now as I was when I was first saved over here and saw an American flag flying in the church. It seemed so out of place to have such a flag flying or any flag flying. I have no problem with the American flag. I believe that in a secular world, America is among the greatest if not the greatest country to ever emerge from the chaos of a lawless world that had only once ever really been conquered, and that by a ruthless Rome in a limited way.

I suppose America is the high water mark of Western civilization and it is and has been in the process of committing slow suicide for generations, death by “freedom.” Any so called freedom, apart from the freedom wrought for us on bloody Calvary ultimately proves to be poison to a fallen mankind. This is where most so called American Evangelicals are hopelessly confused. They have co mingled secular freedom with the freedom given to us by Christ. What man gives man can take away, what Christ gives no man can touch.

So, in a couple of weeks we shall be, it will be told to us, voting for freedom versus oppression. And let us not doubt, although that is wrong, that oppression of the Christian will undoubtedly soar under a Biden administration that will be run by critical race theorists and gender identity madness that will seek, eventually, to lock up anyone who disagrees with them. Yet still, the choice is not between oppression and freedom. he whom the Son set free is already free.

The choice for me, if one votes, whether Evangelical or Catholic or any other group or individual who would have the audacity to call themselves followers of Jesus, and it is an audacious and dangerous claim, lies under the shadow of 64 million murdered babies and counting. I believe for so many genuine saints, this is truly their motivation for voting. They have not fully realized the depths of the fallenness of man and their systems. They believe that they can stop the slide of man into the abyss, not realizing we are already there and the only thing that stops the world from being totally consumed by the darkness is the light that shines from genuine saints.

So, genuine saints will hold their noses once again and vote for Trump for the reasons I have stated and more. God bless them. But in the end, the only thing that makes a difference in this world, truly makes a difference in an evil and fallen world, is someone getting saved. One soul saved is far better than one vote cast. One is a secular right and the other is a mandate from the King of the Kingdom in which we truly dwell, a Kingdom not of this world.

Surrounded by Glory

Posted by appolus on October 13, 2020

For the last couple of days I have been surrounded by glory. I mean the kind of beauty that just dazzles you and helps you understand how infintesimally small you are in the grand scheme of things. How big is our God? Have you cast your eyes heavenwards? Have you seen His grandeur in the heavens? Have you considered the depths of the oceans or the dizzying heights of the mountains? Today we saw two specks, two men, scaling one of these mountains. We were told it would be a two day trip for those guys. Spending a night on the top.

Scaling the heights of His glory. Imagine a mountain that made Everest seem like a mole hill. Everest is just under six miles high, now imagine a mountain hundreds of miles high. It would be unscalable. Yet, there would be men and women out there who would certainly try. They would be the few, but they would exist. Brothers and sisters, we get to do that with God. He beckons us upwards. To scale His glory, to scale His majesty of which there is no beginning and there is no end. To say that we who know Him are the fortunate few is to understate a magnificent truth.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers—for whoever is covered by His his blood with me today shall be my brother. We are a band, not just of brothers but of sisters, we are the Body and we walk in the shadow of infinite glory. For our Creator Jesus has shown His handiwork not only in the heavens and on the earth, but no where more spectacularly than in each and everyone of us. Let us marvel together.
