The attacks on the Southern history and culture are not new. These things happened before. But what I find, as I am studying the Scriptures and reading books such as Christ in the Camp by J Williams Jones, this is very much a Spiritual battle.
The monuments and the men, or rather the character of the men that are under attack today were Christian men. We do not claim them to be without fault, no man is, but they were by their actions and their words, very much servants of the Most High.
I would invite you to study these men. Hear just a sampling of their words:
“Captain, my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me. Captain, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.” -General “Stonewall” Jackson
General Lee described himself as “nothing but a poor sinner, trusting in Christ alone for salvation.”
The fight that is being fought against the South isn’t against the flag. Its not about tearing down monuments. And, time will tell I’m right about this. They will not stop with Lee, Jackson, Davis, etc. Others will and are being attacked now. Our Christian heritage is being attacked from angles.
Are you going to stand?
