Leaving the path of wisdom / perplexed but not in despair

"He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom."

Gandalf in Lord of the Rings, The Fellowship of the Ring

Gandalf's warning, can be applied to so many things happening in our day:- 

  • The tragedy of ordaining women to the priesthood
  • The folly of pretending that the marriage can exist between 2 men and vice versa!
  • The wicked promotion of abortion in the name of women's rights
  • The relentless modernist pursuit of equality in for example allowing women to go to combat
  • The abandonment of physical punishment for disobedient children etc etc

I'm sure am glad that I'm a Post-mil. It would be mighty difficult otherwise to get out of bed in the mornings! Thankfully the Scriptures assure us that before the New Creation, Christ will vanquish all His enemies, the last one to be trounced being death itself (1 Corinthians 15:21-28) - oh happy day. In the meantime may we disciple the Nations as we await that day when by His timing, the earth will be filled with the knowledge of God as the waters cover the sea.
