Why Christian writing is more important than ever

I don't know if you've noticed, but we're living in perilous times.

Wars, rumors of wars, crashing meteorites, earthquakes, and volcanoes in diverse places: Jesus spoke of these things.

As in the days of Noah, when Nephilim walked the earth, and fallen angels tampered with the sacred genes of humankind, those created in God's image today splice genes, implant chips, and embrace the future of singularity.

If there was ever a need for us to be the light that Jesus said we are, it's now.
"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid" (Matthew 5:14)

 Notice this scripture doesn't say you should be the light. It says you are the light.

What are you doing with it?

Are you hiding it because you're afraid of failure?

Are you hiding it because you're lazy?

What is your excuse for hiding your light, Dear Writer?

The world needs Light in this dark, dark world.

Where and when will you let yours shine?
