(Part 17 in the multipart series “Where We Stand“)

“It could never happen here.”
Drunk on entertainments and distractions, the wrong side of multiplex histories screaming at you to stay in line, on ground so shaky that its hard to tell the left from the right, making the best use of the time is not easy. Waging the beautiful war means discipline. It means taking your thoughts captive in order to test, try and establish them with the Word of God.
Demolish their strongholds. Tear down their loft and sophistry. To discover true sobriety in the displacement of the songs of Babylon by wielding the Holy Scriptures on your tongue.
In order to radicalize a group of people, you must first cut them off from their traditional ties, from their culturally inherited hopes and beliefs. Urbanization and the mass-individualization of private entertainments have accomplished the powerful warfare tactic among modern populations without the use of force.

So far as the Holy Spirit is concerned, you are here to worship Jesus. All day. Every day. Raise an “Alleluia!” Hail a hearty, “Amen!” Boldly swear, “As Jesus Christ lives!” In all these things, remember that you are not alone. There are many more than two or three.
Till angel cry and trumpet sound,
The Mad Christian
