I’ve always aspired to not be an alarmist in my writing. There are plenty of places around the web where you can get that sort of thing. Now I’m wondering if that’s been misguided. Isn’t a large part of the reason our world is in the mess it is because Christians haven’t been alarmist enough? If we had been more diligent in holding fast to the Word of God and adhering to His commands and standards, I doubt we would find ourselves where we do today.
History is an excellent teacher, and looking back over the past 250 years, we see the state in which we find ourselves is not so much because of any sudden or recent developments, but rather the result of a long slow slide.
