Comment by Adamantine:
Today I spent some time praying for those listed on the news and prayer letter of a major international evangelistic organization.
I was left pondering how it might be that all of these apparently active Christians could be blind to what we think we see.
How is it possible that we who will be the first to admit we are not apparently more spiritual than our peers see these things and others do not?
I admit it is similar to Anna and Simeon who saw Jesus early on because they were looking for him. I suppose there is no answer which will fully satisfy but it is strange that we might be correct. It is also strange that we might be wrong.
In support of all we discuss today I saw a television interview of Warren Buffet. He said it was very late in the day for Europe to solve its debt crisis and that either they undergo major deeper integration or Europe splits as the euro zone splits. In years past the news usually advised those interested that Europe’s further integration was going to take time and not to expect too much. There has been a shift recently at least as far as Europe is concerned.
