Why Bother?

Rare is the saint who has not breathed the cry of David, "Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?" (Psalm 94:3). It seems like liberal and humanistic educators dominate and control the educational process. A humanistically trained population assumes influential positions in all branches of government which then make, execute, interpret, and enforce laws in conformity to humanistic agendas. The mass media spins liberal policy in a favorable light, conservative policy in an undesirable light, and Christianity as a radical right-wing extremism.

Perhaps more damaging to the Kingdom is the influence among Western churches of claims of personal revelation, a quest for subjective experience, and the rising influence of existentialism and postmodernism—all converge to foster a low view of Scripture.

"If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"  (Psalm 11:3).

The answers to these worldly observations, plaintive cries, and rhetorical questions that fret about the apparent power of the wicked, lie in the overarching eternal truths of Scripture.

  • God is Truth, whether anyone believes it or not (Romans 3:4).
  • God's Word is sufficient to "answer" every man (II Timothy 3:16-17;
    I Peter 3:15; II Peter 1:3-4).
  • God's plan is for His saints to win! (Genesis 1:28; Isaiah 11:9, 55:11; Matthew 6:10; Revelation 11:15).
  • Our trust in God's Word and way will bring victory (Psalm 37).
