Repentance as the solution for “Tail-ism”

What can stop us becoming the tail and not head? Only a return to Christ. Politics isn’t the ultimate answer, though surely a people returning to Christ will desire to practice Christian politics. Only by repenting for loving the pagan Alien more than our Christian children, only by repenting for interpreting God’s word as being an expression of the works of Karl Marx or Antonio Gramsci, only by repenting of a theology that disarms and so disallows muscular Christianity from shaping the public square, only by repenting of think of Christ as a Jacobin Revolutionary storming the Bastille can we be set free from being the tail, from sinking lower and lower, from being destroyed.

Only by taking up the Cross can we eschew the Hammer and Sickle.

We can be forgiven for being squeezed into the World’s mode. There is abundant mercy for those who plead forgiveness. There is sanctification for those begging to think God’s thoughts after Him. There is endurance and perseverance for those who will fight the good fight and so fight against both the enemy outside the Church and the fifth column within the Church.

May God grant us all repentance.

Your biggest help to me dear reader will be to often remind me that God is Sovereign and that all that is, is because it pleases him.
