Today on Twitter one of my favorite English Bishops posted the image that’s the image for this post. It reminded me of a quote:
Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.French Philosopher Denis Diderot (during the French Revolution)
Our current cultural moment seems to be careening towards something akin to the French Revolution. Screaming in the streets with the Antifa crowd and general pro-death demonstrators. A “die in” over a Chick Fil-a opening in Canada. The hyperbole is mind boggling over a Christian owned business that sells decent food, is closed on Sunday, and, most shockingly, gives money to Christian causes. The horror.
We can’t seem to agree that a man can’t actually ecome a woman. Or, if there is anything uniquely male or female or just a mumbled jumbled mess of whatever suits our fancy at whatever moment. And disagreement makes you literally a monster.
We’re moving towards the moment when they’ll want to strangle the last Classical Liberal with the entrails of the Last Christian. Which, for the Christian, isn’t a problem. We have already died.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
