The great unraveling and our great hope

We live in desperate times, don’t we? Sometimes I catch myself thinking that this must be the worst time in all of history.

That’s why I was fascinated to read that one medieval historian picked the year A.D. 536 as history’s worst year. That’s when a volcanic eruption in Iceland flung Europe, parts of the Middle East, and Asia into 18 months of plunging temperatures, fog so thick that the sun could not be seen, dying crops, and starvation. The Plague of Justinian followed, killing over one-third of the population of the Eastern Roman Empire.

So yes, things can get worse. Just consider our own history from the last century: the brutality of World War I, the untold numbers of military and civilians deaths of World War II, the Cold War, Vietnam, and the anti-war movement that included the burning of U.S. cities and clashes with police, the assassinations of various American leaders, the struggles of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s, and the Watergate scandal that caused the downfall of a president.

Sometimes in the chaos of our present crisis, we tend to forget that securing freedom and liberty requires sacrifice from every generation, including our own.

Like those who have answered the call before us, we are being called to fight for the future of our nation.

Today, our enemies are the atheistic, Marxist-driven, “progressive” forces who want to destroy any remnant of allegiance to Judeo-Christian principles and morals in any arena of American life, including government, education, culture, family, business, entertainment, and more.

Right now, these vicious radicals are running riot in our cities and towns and whipping up racial and political division as deep and as ugly as we have seen in 75 years.

But they forget what we must remember: Jesus Christ is our living hope, both for us as individuals and as a nation.
