Today we’re diving into the news and the mailbag to get your response to some interesting events and happenings in the world. Which ones should Christians pay attention to, and which ones should we simply mark up as yet another headline that, while nice to know, doesn’t affect our mission to go into the world and make disciples.

    I hate to focus on one point here but I believe we have lost our focus.

    True born again believers were never on the winning side of any cultural war. What war is there when we ourselves are not called to conquer any culture.

    No the true war is with ourselves in our own mind, in our own flesh, in our own spirit and even our very soul. The Holy command stands: Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul, and all your strength. This is our fight! This is our war! Even though this war is inside us we cannot fight it ourselves; we need other born again believers who are all gifted by the very Spirit of God for the edification and the building up of the body in the Unity that is in Christ Jesus. We are not our own. We truely are part of one another in Christ Jesus. This is where we have lost the battle for we do not accept this truth.

    James 4:5 KJV
    Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?

    Titus 3:3 KJV
    For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.

    Ephesians 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, 18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart: 19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But ye have not so learned Christ; 21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; 23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. 25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. 26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: 27 Neither give place to the devil. 28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour , working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. 29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers . 30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: 32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.

    Oh there is so much more to say here.

    How can we love our nieghbor if we cannot first love God with our whole being both in ourselves and in the Body when it gathers.

    May God who is rich in mercy grant us repentance here in this matter.

    Impressive Mr Davis. And as we fight the good fight thats not against flesh and blood we cant forget that the Lord was'nt just making a suggestion . . . He commanded us to go into the world and make disciples. The battle for America was recently lost and now the battle is for the Kingdom of God and the elect. The fields are ripe for harvest and the time is short. We will fight that inner battle that you speak of until He comes back to get us. Dont let it slow you down. God loves you !! Keep up the good work !!
