Resistance is Futile!

Happy 5th Day of Nativity Celebration!

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain (i.e., futile) thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed . . . .  (Psalm 2:1-2)

I always thought I was the only one who drew a parallel between Star Trek's cube-dwelling Borg and the foursquare city of New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:16). Each respective cube lies suspended in space (the heavens).

I don't know if the writers and producers of the science fiction saga had that in mind, but it seems that at least one unbeliever has made the connection and constructed a web page dedicated to his interpretation of it. (See here) I hope you find the web page instructive, in that it provides a glimpse at how those who embrace a non-christian worldview view believers. They see us as regimented, unfree and intellectually sterile. 

Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. (Philippians 2:2)

This unity of belief and purpose stands out in distinct contrast, of course to public school instruction where humanistically trained teachers lead multitudes of children all to reach the same "politically correct" conclusions. And, as soon as they do, their indoctinators congratulate them that they are finally thinking for themselves.

The main point, however, that I want Christian Martialists to take away from a discussion of the Borg is the first half of their motto/battle cry: 

"Resistance is futile."

At the celebration of our Lord's nativity, Christians momentarily leave behind their theological pessimism and sing the carols that herald the victory of the King and His reign over the nations of men. For a few days, they embrace the real possibility that He actually can establish peace and justice in our world.

I believe that He not only can, but that He will. The nations may rage against Him, but resistance is futile. Our God has not abandoned history to Satan; He will fulfill the commission He gave to the Church (Matthew 28:16-20), even if it's in spite of His people's lack of faith.

I've previously published a series of statements I'd like to put on signs in front of our property here in Possum Kingdom. Up until now, though, I've been looking for a better way to word the penultimate statement.

Now I think I have it.
