 Why Now?

Battle Lake area to be the site of new battle.
          It is a war that has been going on since the beginning of time. It is a battle between good and evil; between believer and non-believer; between the most Holy Lord and our adversary the devil; between those who believe God created the heavens and the earth and all things and those who espouse an evolutionist perspective.
         It is a battle that is primarily focused on our children. As one cornerstone of our faith after another is eroded, our families are hurting. 
        It is even more serious than that, as young people are bombarded with messages that question the Creation and the very existence of God. Romans 1:20-25 serves as a warning!
        With the loss of family farms, today’s hectic schedules, a move to theme park vacations, and schools that promote a non-Christian perspective, young people today often do not understand how God uses creation to feed and clothe His people. Their understanding of nature is often clouded by evolutionary doctrine put forth by teachers who are or are forced to be Darwinian apostles. And, often these children do not have an opportunity to “Be still and know that I am God” as God uses His creation to demonstrate His great power and might and His great love.
     How will the battle be engaged? Scripture guides us in II Cor. 10: “3For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4The weapons we fight with are not weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to God.”
