We infiltrate; we refuse to assimilate.
The call to a covenant community of faith is a calling to come out of the fallen world. We leave it behind and embrace something from another realm of existence, something eternal. It’s a radical rejection of the entire mental orientation of the world around us. We refuse to value what they value. We call their moral system sinful.
We reject the lies about the mainstream being “Christian” in any real sense of the word. It’s not that those folks have no genuine faith, but that they aren’t living biblical faith. They have embraced something alien to the Bible, and read their lies back into Scripture. They are wrong on most things. But we have no interest in destroying their institutions; we will leave that in God’s hands. Instead, we simply leave them behind.
We come out to a different approach entirely. We form a covenant community of faith as our new identity. We don’t lose touch with the world’s way of thinking and doing, but we never lose sight of a far higher calling.
And once we embrace this higher calling, there is no going back. We become it. There is no compromise; it is unthinkable. We know that it belongs to the things Christ will destroy when He Returns. We have no agenda to destroy anything except the lies in our own souls. The Flaming Sword works only when you turn it on yourself. We abandon the things that cannot follow us into eternity. We see all of Creation as just tools for our Lord’s glory, disposable things that have no intrinsic value.
Having tasted this high and glorious estate of the soul, how could we go back? Our spirits rise from death and animate us on a totally different plane of existence. If we truly connect with Christ, turning away from Him is far worse than death.
There is no going back.
