Why the World Fears the Church

Read the Bible in a year by reading First Samuel 4-6 today.
Why is it that the secularists in the world are frightened of the Bible, the church, and Christianity? An incident in the early history of Israel may help us to understand what is going on in the world today. The Philistines were fighting Israel, but when Israel brought the Ark of the Covenant among them, the Philistines knew that they could not win. Here is what they said among themselves, “Be strong and conduct yourselves like men, you Philistines, that
you do not become servants of the Hebrews, as they have been to you. Conduct yourselves like men, and fight!” (1Samuel 4:9). The issue was one of domination. The Philistines did not want to be dominated by Israel and the secularists do not want to be dominated by Christians.
Let each of us do our part to show the world that we want love to reign. Who then can resist that?
