Yesterday I kind of blew my stack when I discussed being offended. Sometimes it’s better to just not know all the ugly stuff going on in this world. Sometimes it’s better to be blissfully ignorant. Well – not really!
God wants us to be watchful. He wants us to know the evil that inhabits our planet. It’s a good thing to know your enemy so you know how to combat him. It’s also good to be vigilant and stand up for your beliefs.
As soon as we let our guard down, the enemy weasels his way into our thinking, our way of life, our politics, our very existence. It is our duty as Christians to be educated in the ways of the world.
Luke 21:36 “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
but also to be learned in the ways of the Lord.”
