“Curse the Darkness? NO! Shine the Light!” – So What Do You Do? by Steve Martin

“The way of the wicked is like darkness; they don’t even know what makes them stumble.” Proverbs 4:19, Complete Jewish Bible

As we see sickening morality in the USA, Canada, Europe – all over the world, in fact – fall lower and lower into the abyss, what do we do? Curse it? Shun it? Pray harder and more fervently, diligently that the “rapture” comes and saves us all who are more righteous”, believing we will escape it all?

We, the ones who have already been saved and now called to be lights in the world, just let it all go?

When darkness covers the land, and deep darkness the people, do we curse it, and them along with it?

No! We are to shine the light of the Lord, even more, being the ultimate brightness that we have been saved to be!

When the political scene has those running for the office of the presidency of our United States come out and say this…

FOX News reported on October 12, 2019: “Democratic presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke says he’d strip churches of tax-exempt status if they don’t support same-sex marriage.

When the former Texas congressman was asked if religious institutions — “colleges, churches, charities” — should be stripped of tax-exempt status Thursday night by CNN anchor Don Lemon during the LGBTQ town hall, he immediately responded, “Yes.”

…it is those of us who call upon the Name of the Lord Jesus who must say, “Never in my lifetime! My kids and grandkids will not have to succumb to the lies of the devil, the wicked ways of the lost, the shameless pushing of godless immorality on our nation.

We will stand up and let the truth shine! We will proclaim the light of the world to our generation and our children’s generation.

When uncommitted, faithful to no one sex becomes increasingly approved, we will let the light shine.

When our elementary, middle, and high schools teach that kids can choose their gender, confusion run amuck, we will let the light shine!

When drugs, alcohol, and senseless acts of destruction continue to take down our children and their friends – we will let the light shine!

When new life is created in the womb, due to the lies our children have been taught saying this is just a “blob”, a “fetus”, and “it is my body”, and anyone can kill the child becomes this will now cause “inconveniency, an unwanted burden, or we will be unable to financially now care for this”, and not the baby created by our God – we will speak out and stand up!

We will stand for justice. We will stand for life. We will stand for the sacred principles shared in marriage between a man and a woman.

No longer will we cower under the religious guise of “Love, love, love.” No longer will we just let things be “whatever will be will be”. No longer must we sit in front of the TV or gaze wide-eyed on the web through our smartphones, watching godless, mindless “entertainment” programming being used to boil the lobsters until they no longer have a conscious and soul.

Curse the darkness? No. Shine the light!

Let Truth be known. Let the eternal Word of God, which will never cease from speaking foundational truth, be taught to our children and grandchildren.

Do something about it, before you no longer have a nation to do it in.

Demonstrate the truthful love of God in action and word. Do it now, before you no longer can.

Be one wanting to know His full ways, always, and then share them with the world He has put us in.

Ahava and shalom,

Steve Martin
