Conservative Christians oppose liberals in general. We pretend we have the moral high ground. We oppose abortion, the homosexual lobby, etc. Yet Christians accept a host of socialist wealth-redistribution schemes. The most glaring example of this is education. Christians, almost to the person, accept and fight for the institution of public education funded by other people’s wealth. Christians will employ every intellectual artifice imaginable in order to justify public education. And yet, what is government education based on except a wealth-redistribution scheme? Likewise, what is Social Security except a gargantuan behemoth of a wealth-redistribution scheme? What is the authorization of billions to prosecute unnecessary wars except a wealth redistribution scheme? Christians will fight to the end for these things as morally right, and yet the funding for these things is based on institutionalized theft and redistribution. In these things we accept, and through our practices and choices approve, the principle that money can be taken from someone else by force in order to pay for a cause we believe is good.

Some of the most faithful Christians I know today are unmarried. They are using their gifts to show a different side of what faithfulness might look like when one doesn’t have children, a spouse, a mortgage, or some other constraints. They are making a case for late marriages not simply because of the kind of marriage they might have by delaying it (hopefully more mature, grounded, wise, and sanctified than if they’d come into marriage at 20 or 22), but by being extraordinarily faithful in their singleness.

To all my readers who are unmarried, thank you for being faithful and I pray you grow only more so. The Church needs to see your example of faithfulness. The Church needs to learn marriage isn’t the most sanctifying agent, but age, maturity, and submission to God are, and no one is exempt from those three things. The Church needs your hands, your minds, your insights, your passion, your longing, your gifts, not because we are needy and greedy, but because for too long we have not valued what you bring to the Christian life.

You stand in the company of Martin Luther, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, C.S. Lewis, Amy Carmichael, Joni Eareckson Tada, Mother Theresa, William Wilberforce, Florence Young, Gladys Aylward, Lottie Moon, Corrie Ten Boom, my sweet friend Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, the Apostle Paul, and Jesus—men and women who married late or never married at all, and of whom the world is not worthy in many ways.

I grew up in the state of Texas and all my friends send their kids to public school and they think “hey it’s no big deal because I know the Christian principle down the road. I know the math teacher, he’s a Christian, we do ‘see you at the pole’ once a year, all these good things.” I just want to grab them by the ear and take them up to the state of Washington, and show them the transgender bathrooms that are developing. Every new government building has to have a transgender bathroom.

The problem is that Christians have for too long [thought] that they could basically coast. As long as there are Christians in there, and they don’t force evolution down our throats. “In our state there are a lot of Christians in the schools so they don’t force the transgender issue down the kids throats”

But that’s not the issue. We need to be training up soldiers. We want fighters. We want our sons and daughters to be arrows. That’s what God says they are, they are arrows in the hand of a mighty man. We want them to rise up and stand with us in the gates and contend with our enemies. So we’re training them to fight.

A lot of our Christian schools are not a whole lot better. At least there we have a chance but so many of our Christian schools just like government schools with bible classes. Homeschools can be the same way. You need to teach them to fight. They need to know who their enemies are and take them.
