The Apostle Paul, in Ephesus, “went into the synagogue and spoke boldly for three months, reasoning and persuading concerning the things of the kingdom of God. But when some were hardened and did not believe, but spoke evil of the Way before the multitude, he departed from them and withdrew the disciples” (Acts 19:8-9 NKJV). Unbelievers will speak “evil of the Way” of Christ. It is easy, therefore, to predict that in the course of this year: the Propaganda Press will feature stories of racial prejudice in the “Bible Belt;” Harlotwood will continue to depict hatefulness and hypocrisy in all “Bible-believers;” TV sitcoms will laugh at homosexual opponents; and TV history channels will continue to question and deny the accuracy, text, and truthfulness of the Bible. “The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble” (Proverbs 4:19 NKJV).
