Our Corrupted Compass

We take for granted that we can hop on a plane, drive a car, or sail a boat nowadays and go someplace hundreds or thousands of miles away with the confidence that we will find it without any trouble. The age of satellites, computers and GPS, a very hi-tech "compass," has ensured pinpoint accuracy when traversing the expanse of our globe. It’s almost inconceivable that a ship’s crew out of sight of land would end up lost, meandering around not knowing where they are or which bearing they need to make landfall, even in a storm. Despite these advances in scientififc technology, we've lost our theological GPS along the way. As a result, we find ourselves in the midst of a tempest, a Cat 4 societal storm that threatens to crash our nations upon the rocky shores of rebellion and destruction. Is it possible to emerge from this, and once again find our safe harbour?

The Genesis Birthright, The Blind Man’s Elephant

Our story is non-fiction. While the names have changed, no one is innocent. And it is far more intriguing and meaningful in our every day lives than any fiction. Close to a hundred million copies of this story are sold every year. Because the body of this story is scattered in the pages of the Biblical record in bits and pieces like a puzzle, we are oblivious to its film noir essence not unlike a person who is shocked to find out that their quiet next-door neighbor has a cellar full of buried bodies. We are about to put those bits and pieces together. We will form a very clear picture that is of great importance for us today. And we will discover that everything is not as it appears.

We Don’t Believe You

Don't ask the Lord to guide your footsteps if you aren't willing to move your feet.

Did you know you can jump off the Petronas Towers or the Empire State Building, and you will fly safely to the street below? Yep. No need to use the elevators. If we were perched on a windy ledge atop one of these skyscrapers right now, my guess is you’d have about zero faith in putting this claim to the test, BASE jumpers notwithstanding. I’d wager a decent sum you’d believe I was flat out lying to you. And even if I bullied you, “C’mon, you sissy wimp, jump!” your resolute conviction of the truth in Newton’s classical laws of gravity, not to mention a sane bit of fear, would lead you straight to the elevators. Our lives as Christians are much the same. Except, believing the lie, yielding to peer pressure, and casting aside fear, we’ve jumped.
