THE GAME GOES ON

A strange phenomena in life is when it’s over it ain’t over. What I mean is something is hopeless and it continues on. An example of this is when a team scores so many points in the beginning of the game it would take the other team a dozen games to score as many.

No matter how far they are behind the game goes on. When the outcome is obvious, people lose interest, and leave the stadium to the extent that the players are about the only ones left toward the end of the game.

In today’s world there are many struggles going on, the outcome is not in doubt yet the struggle goes on.

The framers of the constitution never dreamed of the issues faced in this country today. The church is threatened as never before and is addicted to laxity. There are people who avow they will exterminate every Christian and the church yawns and says Ho-hum.

What happens when Islam is in charge? Ask the recent CHRISTIAN MEDICAL MISSION people in Afghanistan. Oh, I forgot the Islamic believers murdered them so they won’t be able to tell you. Anyone who preaches the gospel of Christ is seen as an infidel and worthy to be killed. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100807/ap_on_re_as/as_afghanistan 

There are so called Christian groups in America that have a convoluted sense of fairness and as a result of fear of being seen as biased, are supporting the expansion of Islam.

From the New York Times: “But they have not gone unanswered. In each community, interfaith groups led by Protestant ministers, Catholic priests, Rabbis and Clergy members of other faiths have defended the (building of) mosques. Often, they have been slower to organize than the mosque opponents, but their numbers have usually been larger.”

I may be wrong but I don’t think anyone who can’t live uprightly for Christ will be willing to die for his cause.

In some African nations today there is a separation of the sheep and the goats going on, where Christians are called upon to recant or die. Not an easy choice unless the commitment is real and nonnegotiable. The church is suffering from malaise that has all but paralyzed it.

The enemies of Christ are scoring all the points and the game is over, yet it still goes on.

From the New York Times: “Feeding the resistance (to Islam) is a growing cottage industry of authors and bloggers — some of them former Muslims, who are invited to speak at rallies, sell their books and testify in churches. Their message is that Islam is inherently violent and incompatible with America, and; Islam is invading, (all countries) and that civilization is being undermined by Muslims.”

Fragmentation of the church at one time was needful in order to keep one group from dominating and controlling the church as prior to the reformation. Currently it is a weakness for it doesn’t provide a strong front to stand against the present adversaries.
