So this is just a quick note to comment on the recent headline news item on Yahoo! about changing the name of the Freedom Tower [the building to serve as a memorial to the twin towers] to the One World Trade Center.
The Daily News’ front cover says “No More Freedom”.
Now I just want to make a prediction, and you all keep your eyes and ears open.
Adventism is blessed with many sincere sensationalists who are always on the prowl for a good conspiracy or sign of the end of the world.
My guess is, this new name, due to its close resemblance to the phrase ‘New World Order’ will have these people hopping.
Just a guess, I hope Im wrong. Its not that I doubt conspiracies or signs of the end, but we are so transfixed on them sometimes we neglect what we are suppsoed to be doing amidst these occurences-namely telling people about Jesus, what He wants to do in their life, and what He wants to do in this world–and in the next. Sometimes we focus more on what the devil is doing than what Jesus is doing and it drives me nuts. We will lecture or write a half hour or half a page on the woes of the world and then include the Good News at the end for about 5 minutes or 5 sentences.
Our eyes are to be on Christ more than they are on crisis.
