One Young Man

Social, Political, and Biblical analysis.

Quote from Ronald Reagan

The beginning.

The following comments can be found under the About page on this blog, but I wanted to post them here, at the beginning, as the introduction of One Young Man.




1 Kings 13-18

13 And it was so, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle, and went out, and stood in the entering in of the cave. And, behold, there came a voice unto him, and said, What doest thou here, Elijah?
14 And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
15 And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria:
16 And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
17 And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay.
18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

There is tremendous evil in the world and it seems more apparent now than ever before, or at least to me it does. It also is more apparent to me now than ever before the shocking number of people, even many Christians, who would stick their head in the sand and choose to ignore the darkness. No matter who you are, or what your background, you are no doubt familiar with the atrocities of ISIS, the millions of babies being murdered (and as we know now literally being butchered and sold for spare parts), some of the more cognizant among us are sure to feel our rights, the rights given us by our Creator, being stolen from us. Yet what do we do? What can we do? The darkness is so vast, so great, there is just a small candle of light, of truth, flickering, faintly flickering, and at this moment in time being suppressed by the darkness. It will be snuffed out soon and then only darkness, such evil darkness and cold calamity that this earth has never seen before will be all we know, all our children will ever know. Here I sit watching, heartbroken for this country, for my brothers, for my sisters, heartbroken over the fact that so few see or even want to see. What could I possibly do, for I am but One Young Man. I am just One Young Man against an entire world of people, some refusing to see, some seeing but refusing to believe, and some believing in the darkness and using it to suppress the light.

Just as with Elijah, it seems impossible that One Young Man could turn the tide of human events, and it is impossible. But what I know, what I believe, is that even though I am  just One Young Man, I know, just like in 1 Kings, there is a remnant out there. I know there is a mighty remnant of believers out there who see the light, who believe in principles, who stand on the word of God, who will never compromise. The truth is, the darkness has always been great, the light has always been small, but the remnant has always existed. So even on the days where I feel like I am the only one out there, I realize I am just One Young Man in the mighty army of Christ.

I started this blog with the hope of encouraging those who are part of this remnant, your not alone, there are more of us out there and I hope this blog is proof of that, proof that there are more people just like you. We all struggle, we all doubt at times, we all fall down, we all weary of fighting for truth, but we must always trust and believe in the light, the light of the Love of Jesus Christ. At the end of the day this blog is my commentary, thoughts, and analysis of social, political, and Biblical issues.  I don’t speak for the remnant of believers, I only speak for a teeny tiny part of it, after all this is the opinion of just One Young Man.
