Standing Against The Ecumenical Monoculture

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines Of never failing skill He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head.

Judge not the LORD by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence, He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flow’r.

Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan his work in vain; GOD is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.

--William Cowper

When Acid Burns


In his book Darwin’s Dangerous Idea, Daniel Dennett calls Darwinism a “universal acid,” referencing a children’s story about an acid that eats everything it contacts, including its container. Explaining this concept he says, Darwinism “eats through just about every traditional concept and leaves in its wake a revolutionized world-view.”


Whether you recognize it or not your worldview, the overarching interpretative framework through which you interpret the world around you, has profound implications on every aspect of your life. Your worldview is like the glasses through which you view life; they determine not only what and how you see but if you see at all.

Throughout the Scriptures God is spoken of as a burning fire, a consuming fire. The prophet Jeremiah speaks of how God’s Word is like a fire trapped in his bones that he cannot contain. As followers of Christ we should seek to conform every aspect of our life to the Scriptures. We should allow the “universal fire” of God’s Word to consume every aspect of our lives and ignite in them a burning passion for the glory of God.
