Words of Comfort: The Redcoats (part 2)

The Internet has given instant access to the darkest of sins. Hard core pornography is seconds away from the eyes of any youth who can type in the word “sex.” He can have instant delirious sinful pleasures at the click of a button. But it comes at a price. Those who give themselves to darkness will automatically cower away from and hate the light, and when any human being hardens his God-given conscience, he will find that he can also hate without any sense of guilt.

Thanks to smooth-talking British redcoats like Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitches, we now have a generation of God-haters who are ready to be used by the enemy. They are dead to morality because they think that they are the offspring of apes, there’s no God, and there’s no ultimate right or wrong. Once again a generation has been brainwashed by propaganda, as so clearly happened in Germany just 70 years ago.

So how do we reach hardened sinners who are ripe for the enemy’s agenda? We do it by entering their world of Social Media. We do it by creating short fast-moving Internet movies that reach millions with the gospel—movies such as “Genius” that can be freely viewed at GeniusTheMovie.com or “180” at 180Movie.com. We want to convince Christians to view them, “like” them, comment on them, and push them through Facebook and Twitter. This lifts the YouTube ratings, and so more people get to hear the gospel that brings sinners out of the darkness into the glorious light.

In the past, missionaries have traveled to far countries with the message of the gospel -- with great hardship and often with the loss of life. In contrast, we can reach millions instantly from the comfort of our homes by merely hitting the “send” button on our computers, or with iPads, or phones. With the help of God we stop the new wave of persecution because the gospel makes enemies into friends. May God stir us to do this and to do it quickly.
