...And We Still Don't Pray

Editor, Wisconsin Christian News:

   As WW II approached mid-summer of 1945, it had already claimed between 21- 25 million lives all together, including that of over 400,000 U.S. soldiers. By this same time — mid-summer of 1945 — we had already developed, tested, and had available to us our “greatest weapon” — the atomic bomb!  However, its use would bring about unimaginable death and destruction, the likes we had never seen before. But after much discussion  it was surmised that failure to use our “greatest weapon” would bring about even greater loss of life to American soldiers, our allies and the Japanese.

   So on the mornings of August 6, 1945 and August 9, 1945 atomic bombs were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki — killing tens of thousands. Five days later, on August 14, 1945, the Japanese government officially surrendered. The use of those atomic bombs, our “greatest weapons,” brought about a swift and decisive end to WWII.

   As Christians in this spiritual war we are fighting, we fail to use our “greatest weapon,” our most pwerful weapon — prayer. 

   There were several things missing in my former church, which I used to love. Missing was: TRUTH, CONDEMNATION OF SIN, PASSION FOR THE LORD, and  THE HOLY SPIRIT.
