Fighting the Good Fight

I am fighting the good fight of the faith

Where every tear is a question mark.

A prostrating illness in which

Providence seems to mock.

A seemingly needless severe frustration.

Things are going from bad to worse

An apparent deterioration.

All in the fight to maintain my faith.

I was called to this "fight"

Which implies the existence of foes.

Foes!

Of the faith in the outside world.

Foes!

In the organised church.

Foes!

In my own fallen nature.

Yet I must fight.

Fight!

Against error and evil in society.

Fight!

Against declension.

Fight!

Against apostasy in the professing church.

Fight!

Against temptation.

Fight!

Against sin in my own heart and life.

Oh how many are my foes and how strong?

Godless Politics!

Economics!

Commercialization!

Anti Christians Schools!

Philosophy!

Psychology!

Education!

Vicious Novels!

Pornographic magazines!

The connivance of our courts of law!

Unchastity!

Dishonoring of marriage vows!

Modern Cinema!

and

Theater!

Television!

Alcoholism!

Gambling!

and

You Name it!

I must Fight it!

Foes!

In the church-

Denominational bigotry!

Religious Rationalism!

Foes!

In my own nature-

Ambushments of doubts.

Fears!

Hereditary weakness!

Ulterior Motives!

Lurking Judases ever ready to betray the citadel of man's soul.

To invading temptations etc.

Oh how many and how mighty!

How subtle and how scheming!

How incessant!

and

How insurgent are the

Foes of Faith!
