Last night, my fellow Americans and I watched a momentous special live report from the White House. Osama Bin Laden, the master mind behind the 9-11 terror attacks on the USA and the monster behind terror worldwide… has been killed. Whereas it may seem awkward to celebrate the death of a human… I am absolutely beside myself with joy because of this news!
I thank God this morning for the courage, sacrifice, and loving devotion… the men and women of our United States Armed Forces. I thank God for the legacy mindedness of our former President George W. Bush… to risk his popularity and declare war on terrorism in the Middle East and elsewhere throughout the world.
I pray for grace and peace on every family member and friend of every person killed in acts of terror… and for every family member and friend of every warrior killed in the war on terror. Even though this war on evil is not over… the death of Osama Bin Laden is vindication for millions of Americans and millions of others in the global community.
These days require a willingness in the parent generations to RISK EVERYTHING for tomorrow’s better world. Yesterdays news was very big! May the death of Osama Bin Laden inspire people worldwide… to FACE OUR GIANTS and defeat them, for the dream of a better tomorrow. (Todays photo comes from: TotallyCoolPix.com)

Chapter 4: Tomorrow’s Great Hope
Unknown to most people, there is an invisible battle raging—the bloody collision between two very old kingdoms; a violent clashing between Light and darkness! Anyone who’s been to this battlefront will scare the “hell” out of you. The casualties are mounting hourly. I believe that we’re already living in a post-moral era, a day when good is evil and evil is good. Many churches no longer provide moral compasses and many are no longer appreciated as beacon of lights to the nations. Christianity is not effectively facing and solving the complex problems the modern generations are facing. It seems that Christians and Christianity have become outdated and unwanted, and more desperately in need of reform than we know.
But no matter how bad things may appear concerning the spiritual state of our society, buried deep beneath the dark, cold ashes of yesterday’s awakenings, there remains a glowing ember of hope.

Chapter 5: Exposed To The Bigger Cause
Sometimes I feel like Christopher Columbus, searching for another new world—but in a country that once was! When I discover this new world in all its glory, I’m going to give it to my children and yours as my loving inheritance to them. Are you with me? Just like Columbus pursued his ambitious dream, we must pursue ours, too! We have to raise our sails now and fly straight into the fiercest, uncharted seas, without flinching for even a second! And when that time comes, and we’re face to face with the monsters, we have to banish them to the ocean floor!
With all my heart, I want our offspring to know all about the stand you and I took for them. I pray to God that they will always remember us as a selfless, sacrificing, and legacy-driven parent generation. I long to grant them a safer world, one that’s free from terrorism and the threat of nuclear extinction; a world remarkably preserved in a spirit of purity and free of violence, perversion, and every evil thing.
It may appear like Christianity is the antiquated religious movement of years gone by, but you and I can definitely make it the founding religion of tomorrow’s America! Together we must reform the spiritual condition of our world and pass on a much better version of our great faith than the one we’ve been sporting these past 100 years. I’m talking about a Christianity that’s not shunned, but rather greatly appreciated by the societies of tomorrow, doing so much more than just telling people how to live.
We have to become a modern pilgrim people—living powerfully and leading and serving our world through the timeless principles of our guiding Scriptures and God’s Spirit living in us and working through us. We have to show our world a faith that courageously and relevantly approaches and solves the real problems of today—spiritual problems, emotional problems, family problems, social problems, economic problems, and every category of problems known to people.
We haven’t much time left! Already the clock is set in motion. A bloodthirsty outbreak of sin and suffering ravages our planet. This is the world we’ve built with our decades of tolerance. Tonight, thousands of demonically stimulated father figures will molest thousands of innocent children, while you and I are safely tucked into our beds. Tonight, thousands of men, women, and children will be thrown out into the streets of our cities, to prostitute their bodies for another day’s wages.
In this world tonight, too many teenage girls will lose their innocence to a charming young romeo. Thousands more of our people, young and old, will overdose on drugs, die in drunk driving accidents, or commit crimes for which they end up behind bars. Multitudes of struggling marriages will tragically drift into that place of no return where numbness and hatred snuff out the love that once was.
Tonight, countless children will lie in bed awake, trembling through their fears of tomorrow—fears of their parents splitting up, fears of their homes being broken into, fears of drive-by shootings, and fears of emotional and physical abuse.
The ever-increasing evidences of the Post-Christian Dark Age are everywhere. This is our Goliath! Behold, the monster! Don’t turn away. He’s mocking our God, humiliating our warriors, and threatening all of us into a future of darkness.
People of God, fellow Christians, we are still the greatest hope. Change is coming… and we will be the city on a hill for the world once again!
