The boys who reject maturity are doomed to repeat Lucifer’s error. I could have told you that Americans and Canadians are being manipulated by people in government who think that they have a case to make for maintaining the juvenile phase of national development. Americans just saw the tip of that iceberg in the president-inspired insurrection of January 6th. Canadians are being radicalized in churches by a crazed mob of religious people and politicians. The A-Team in our communities does not realize that merely trying to recapture the ideals that attended the beginning of our societies and nations are starting points; a juvenile lack of personal accountability and a fatal imprisonment.
The A-Team in your church has been toying with the same idea. I am aware that my fingers are pointing at me and my church. The obvious juvenile complex comes to light in Paul’s description of a minor and a prison when he addressed the same problem. The obvious juveniles of Paul’s days and ours have the spititual daycare and the prison as the rock on which they stand. They can only call us names when we take our stand on the Branch and Root of David – they cannot pretend not to know who that is – and the only Pattern for a moral life.
The boys and the prisonGalatians 3:22-23
22) But the Scripture has shut up everyone under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe. 23) But before faith came, we were kept in custody under the law, being shut up to the faith which was later to be revealed.
Please read the context to see how foolish the journey is that Christian and political leaders have undertaken. The wolves Paul saw coming are still around.
