I’ve been reading so many pessimistic, ‘we’re doomed‘ comments online that I needed to post this. Pessimism and warring amongst ourselves are having a demoralizing effect. I used to do more posts exhorting my readers, trying to rally people’s spirits, though I have never been a real Pollyanna. I wonder how many of the doomsayers are operatives amongst us, even those who are veteran commenters on some blogs. Even if the other side is not responsible for all the negative posts I am sure our foes are applauding the demoralizing result. Meanwhile I like to remind myself that none of us, even the most perceptive and informed, knows the future. And I believe that God is sovereign, not any mortal human being, however powerful.
