“If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known, that we are at all times ready for War.”
― George Washington
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
(Rock of Cashel / County Tipperary, Ireland / Julie Cook / 2015)
Christian how are your defenses?
Do you lock your doors?
Do you lock your car?
Do you lock up your bike?
Do you have a security system?
Do you have a chip in your pet?
Do you have security cameras?
Do you have security for your phone, your laptop, your car?
Do you have insurance protecting your property?
Do you expect your bank to protect your assets?
Do you expect the FDA to protect your food?
Do you expect your bill of rights and constitution to protect your speech, your vote, your way of life?
Do you have police and sheriff departments protecting your city and town?
Do you have a military protecting your nation?
Yet do you defend and protect your faith?
Oh you say you don’t see the need?
You say you pray, that’s enough?
What about worship?
What if that was invaded, threatened, taken…away?
Have you ever worried that going to church could be taken away, stolen, lost, destroyed…?
Are you willing to fight for your beliefs?
If you defend and protect everything else in your life, why not your faith…
Who rises up for me against the wicked?
Who stands up for me against evildoers?
