I thought it best to drop a quote today so here it is:
So what makes us think that this world is so doomed, that its salvation must come through some sort of replaced existence. Can the things in this world that refuse to worship God, the things that are so contrary to His character ever push out God's glory and goodness? God placed His glory upon the world in its creation, we cannot diminish it, not with a thousand evil deeds, no matter the oppression or waste or harm we do to it. The glory of God is still here and it will win over our hearts and our lives long before the darkness does. Celebrate that this Halloween, and get some candy too...
A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a
lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls
his cell. -C. S. Lewis
