A Compliant Nation Is A Fearful Nation, And A Fearful Nation Is A Guilty Nation
A fearful nation is merely the fruit of a guilty nation.
The Bible promises us that a day is coming when the devil will be utterly destroyed, and it is true that this day has not yet arrived. However, even now, Christians can be encouraged in knowing that the devil’s chief power (the “fear of death”) has been utterly stripped away from him for all those who are united to Christ through saving faith.
