"Not by might, nor by power..."

Even when humans do nothing but dither and fret, God works to vindicate His cause by the mightest of weapons- the Cross.

European Muslims- confronted with the truth and with the power of the Gospel- are converting.

Uwe Siemon-Netto shares a disturbing- yet also encouraging- look at the West during Islam's new onslaught.

As he observes, at least at the moment we lack a Charles Martel to turn back the menace. It's dificult to see where the Tours of ur generation will be fought- unless in the hearts and minds of men, with what a contemporary translation of Luther's "A Mighty Fortress" calls "weapons of the Spirit."

For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

(1 Corinthians 1:22-25 ESV)

Where the weakness and folly of our leaders has failed to stand firmly against the onslaught, God uses the Sword of the Spirit- His Word- to conquer hearts.
