With the unusual events of this past week and an impromptu family reunion in central Taiwan, I find myself on a different topic than what I wanted to talk about.
However, it is so much more important than the destruction of our civilization that it’s like the difference between night and day. And, I find that our churches have destroyed themselves because they do not do the one thing that would keep them safe:
We serve God and follow God, because we love Him. But, we keep ourselves pure and holy because we fear Him.
I will be traveling over the next few weeks, and my thoughts are about my primary destination:
…and those who are her enemies
I am shocked at the evil thoughts that many hold – while claiming to be followers of Christ. Zion is another name for Jerusalem, and it is at the center of Jewish aspirations for a national homeland – the precise definition of Zionism.
Living in Taipei, you’d think that I would talk about China more than I do. And, it’s true that I certainly have more experience with the Chinese than most. I’ve taught Chinese students, and my wife is Chinese by culture and Taiwanese by birth.
I also like the Chinese. They’re full of interesting contradictions and foibles. They’re not as polished or as sophisticated as those of us from the West, and they’re far more honest and sincere than we are.
And, Chinese Christians?
We can’t hold a candle to them. They are superior to us in every way. And we should be ashamed of that.
