As he said, ‘darkness defends darkness’.
Thank God for His word, and obey it.
I generally like defending/contending but when you post videos like these its kinda disheartening. I don’t know what juan williams being fired have to do with faith. Nor do understand the posting some video of a kind of vague dark vs. light general statements with no scriptural basis. The reason the koran burning became such a media event was because the pastor’s interview, the effect it may have on our troops and even christians stood up against it. As for the other video excluding the last they were in other countries so why would we need to report on them. This video just seems more political than actually faith building.
Oftentimes on here we publish posts about the current persecution of the Church in the third world. We also oftentimes publish posts about the coming persecution of the Church in the West. Consider this one of those posts.
I assure you that this video had absolutely nothing to do with politics.
You state: “Nor do understand the posting some video of a kind of vague dark vs. light general statements with no scriptural basis.”
I believe the Scripture to which Todd is referring may be Ephesians 5:8-11, “For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”
Ephesians 6:12 which explains that ‘we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
See also: John 3:19-21, 12:35-36, 1Thess 5:5, etc.
Todd often comes to the conclusion that darkness will defend darkness. In other words, we can’t expect this world to stand for truth because, as the Lord tells us, they are blinded by the god of this world, Satan, who certainly relishes the idea of a double standard, especially from Christians.
Just my understanding of this video…
The Issue is not that I don’t know whats he’s referring scriptural by dark v. light. Issue is instead of giving any scriptural basis for it and he just keeps repeating it over and over again to try rouse up believers. Second his facts to support his argument are weak, Juan Williams being fired had nothing to do with dark v. light it had to do with liberal v. conservative politics which also why everyone talk about it. Then he goes on to this United Arab Emirates case ruling and ask why it wasn’t reported on. That’s easy because it wasn’t in America. Finally He compares Koran burning pastor to some professor ripping out pages of the bible and said where’s the outrage. Well I guarantee if the professor went on national television(in America), and told the world he was going to burn the bible like Koran Pastor did. There would definitely be some outrage. The Fact of the matter is that as Christians we will deal with persecution because we proclaim Christ, which is foolishness to world but just because some claims to be with us doesn’t they are. That’s why I said earlier that this video seems more political than faith building. the guy talks about scriptural concepts but quotes no scripture, His facts to support his statement are weak, His condescending attitude when talking about Muslim attire comes off as arrogant, and to top it off he slyly slips in the current administration is dark at the end. Where does he mention to pray for our leaders like the bible commands us to(1 Tim 2:1-2),he doesn’t he just get you fire up with bad facts and no scripture and that’s the outrage.
