Take heart if you are a believer. This is nothing new. We sometimes think that the battles we fight are new but the pagans have been trying to drive God out of the public square all through history. I saw this again recently. I was reading in The Journals of John Wesley and on July 6, 1781 he wrote,
“It is true, the doctrine of a particular Providence...is absolutely out of fashion in England.”Then he added,
“...as the majority, even of Britons, to this day, retain some sort of respect for the Bible.”The intellectuals were trying to drive out the idea of God, or Providence in 18th century vocabulary. In spite of this there was a general positive feeling toward the Bible. Does that sound familiar? Recently I posted that even atheist Richard Dawkins had some good words to say about the KJV.
Relax and trust. God has been down this road before even if it is our first time.
