Opposition to Righteousness

It would be hard to miss the increase in vitriolic recriminations among the many news and pundit presentations these past few weeks. Although the political campaign stirred up personal hatred against the President, the rather surprising election majority—especially participation by the "religious right," has opened up a fountain of hate mongering that has not been publicly aired for several decades.

Expect Opportunities to Blossom

Yet during the most intense pressures to yield, God's witness and His Church has thrived and grown. The light of the "glorious gospel of Christ" (II Corinthians 4:4) shines all the more brightly in the dark. Expect great doors to open up this year.

Pray for Strength and Boldness

History is replete with "seasons" of oppression and persecution of God's people—all the way from the slavery of Israel in Egypt through the horrid bloodshed of the Middle Ages to the atrocities against Christians in the Middle East today. Paul admonishes us to don the "whole armour" (Ephesians 6:11) to protect us and David calls God to "Fill their faces with shame" (Psalm 83:16). Our aim is ever to win the lost and turn them to the "light" (Acts 26:18). But in doing so, we can expect opposition from those that hate the light (John 3:20).

Help Us Fight Behind the Enemy's Lines

ICR's unique battle position is an assignment behind the "front lines" in the very heart of the enemy stronghold. Surely it is clear that the "intelligence" of the enemy in our Western culture is founded on naturalism and evolutionary humanism. ICR's job is to expose that awful "darkness" by turning on the "light" of a creationist worldview. We need God's help. Pray for us. We need your help. Support us. Together we can "turn many away from iniquity" (Malachi 2:6).
