TUG-OF-WAR? PDF Print

Is there a secular versus sacred tug-of-war in your life?

The idea of an environment that is completely secular – in other words being devoid of God’s teaching – is embraced and desired by many in our culture today.  Those who would suggest that such atmospheres could and do exist are those who are more likely to reject the actual presence of God in any space.  Being convinced of the idea that mankind is the result of an extremely old step-by-step evolutionary process the secularist seeks to ridicule and hamper those who may hold views to the contrary.

Anyone with even a modicum of understanding regarding the Christian faith would understand the absurdity with which the believer would view this concept of secularism.  In their minds (the disciple) –  there exists no space from our Lord’s divine presence.

A believer in Jesus Christ, cannot move to and from a divine presence to a profane plot of ground at a whim.  Even though this is what our post-modern world demands.  We, as disciples, recognize the design that Christ has upon our minds and hearts along with the entire spectrum of our lives and brings that faith and practice into every realm of our existence.

Chosen by Christ we leave the debate behind and acknowledge that every decision made is done so under the tutelage of God’s divine Spirit.  There is no tug-of-war because we as followers, have let go of the rope.  Whether the world will accept this decision and the subsequent path is another question.  But we who know Christ can do nothing else – so here we stand.  May that stance never falter!

– Dale
