A FEW YEARS AGO, THE THEN PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHURCHES WARNED AGAINST what he called “the danger that the great religious awakening which is taking place in our country might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life.” This is perhaps a fair sample of the “leadership” of most of our churches: no leadership at all, because the leaders have no faith in the religion to which they give empty lip-service. For lack of faith in the Bible, they don’t make it a force in our national life. For lack of faith, they pay no attention to what II Peter 1:19 calls “a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place.” But to these blind leaders of the blind, all is darkness: they cannot lead because they don’t know where to go. They turn their backs on God, and tell us to become more “Liberal”, and learn to get along with Red China.
Never were the word of prophecy, and the laws of God, more needed than today, with all civilization crumbling in the end of an age. More Christians have been murdered within our own generation than in all past history.
