Life is meant to be lived and the world — broken and fallen as it is — is meant to be challenged and improved. It is not enough to stand and stare at it through a window.
I get it: there are lots of bad guys — wow, are there a lot of bad guys — and even more fools out there. Even entire sectors of America are enemy territories to men and women of conscience.
You are a soldier but your battles are of a stranger sort. Your arsenal of patience, loyalty, truth, honor, hope, mercy, and faith will be laughed at in the ‘real world’.
But, you must never forget: you do not have to defeat the world — it has already been defeated — literally defeated, not figuratively or poetically — and that victory has been secretly given to the Elect.
Use it. Move forward. Take ground.
