This world gets sicker and sicker by the day. This past Hallowe'en weekend proved that.
Again, all the more reason why we Christians must be out there on the front lines doing battle for the Lord, bringing the Good News of salvation to all the world - starting right in our own backyard!
Last Saturday saw a team of us doing just that. And of all places, at a so-called "Family Event" in Ottawa's Westboro community. A family 'zombie walk' was the kicker for the morning at "Wickedly Westboro" .
There, little children and young teens were brought to join their parents in being made up as murdered dead people (zombies) complete with depictions of blood, gore and all things frightful. They were taught how to walk and groan like zombies before parading themselves in character through the retail corridor of Westboro.
Glorifying murder, bloodshed, guts and gore. Death galore. These people have no idea what, or who, they are playing with. They have no idea what they are teaching and planting in the hearts and minds of their little ones. They have no idea that their wickedness is an abomination to the one true God, but obviously not to the god they made up in their minds to suit themselves, if any god at all. Yet, what can we expect from those who know not Christ, nor His gospel that saves?
So what are Christians to do about this problem?
GO! "Go out into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." - Mark 16:15
Our church family happens to worship in Westboro and a few of us made it our business to be a witness for the Lord by spreading His saving gospel to all that would receive a tract at this event. We also tagged tracts to utility poles and many cars throughout the neighbourhood. We stood at the main intersection, as well, for two hours with our "Are You Ready" crosses following the short parade as we continued to hand out tracts.
People don't take death, nor what truly happens after death, seriously. Not until it hits close to home. Even then, the harsh reality of it may only last a while before they are making light of it again. The saddest thing is that they pass on their ignorance to their children. But we Christians know full well what happens after death.
We, therefore, we must be active proclaiming the sobering truth, warning people and then telling them how they can come to peace with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, that they too may be saved and guaranteed eternal life in heaven instead of hell.
It's what we are here on earth to do: seek and save that which is lost while joyfully serving our King and Savior!
