How Bad Is It?
Covid 19 has killed its ten thousands and simmers in wait for the fall.
Our economy, (which to most of us means our ability to support ourselves and our families) is in shambles…one of the truths untold is how badly it’s broken.
Our institutions are broken and scorned…we trust no one.
We are utterly opposed to each other politically and only speak in extremes about the evils we perceive the other brings.
We talk now of war and violence against each other as casually as we speak of the sermon we heard last week…anger is the greatest virtue.
From the perspective of my life span, these are indeed historically bad times.
The inevitable conclusion is that sooner or later everything will collapse and no one dare imagine what that means.
I would contend that the last hope for this country is the church.
Not with a revival, nor with mass conversions, surely not by elections… but by modeling humility, reconciliation, forgiveness, and love of God and neighbor.
We would have to stop being driven by the media and be guided by Scripture and tradition.
We would have to repent of seeking political power and earnestly seek the power of the Holy Spirit.
We would have to be prepared to serve and love our enemies.
We need to be known for our love and good works more than our political leanings.
I know…it’ll never happen.
That’s how bad it is…
