The Box

The Box

The whole world is under the control of the evil one.  1 John 5:19

Allow me to introduce you to the box. In many ways, it’s a large box. It contains public schools, government buildings, justice buildings, most of the arts and sciences. The box was taught by Immanuel Kontz, Soren Kierkegaard, Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Jean Paul Sarte, and a host of other systems thinkers. If you grew up in the western world, you have grown up in the box.
In another way, it’s a very small box. It does not contain prayer, worship, awe, contrition, or repentance. And God is definitely not in the box. When Jesus rose from the dead He broke the lid off the box.

The box I am referring to is the box of naturalism. Too many Christians are theoretical supernaturalists and practicing naturalists.

Naturalism is one of the tools the evil one is using to control the world’s system. It’s time to break step with the status quo. You cannot follow Jesus Christ and stay in the box.

Father God, expose to me the lies of naturalism. Take me by the hand and lead me out of the box of naturalism. I repent of holding to a form of godliness and yet denying the power of it.
