“There she lies.
In the street.
On your street.
On our streets.
There she lies in the street, alone, bloodied, beaten and bruised.
She has been struck over and over again by mockers and cynics.
Is she yet breathing?
She has been run over by politicians & judges and law-breakers call ‘legislators’.
She has been ignored by professional preachers & paid pulpiteers.
She has been punched and assaulted by movies & music & media.
Over & over again she has been stabbed & slapped by schools & educators.
This beautiful and innocent creature is walked by, ignored, now an embarrassment to the cultured and modern.
Truth lies fallen in the street.
Truth lies broken, bloodied, battle-scarred & bruised in the street.
Truth is weak and almost gone, sadly, sorrowfully staining our streets with her blood.
This is the tragedy of our time, this is the abomination of our generation, this is the guilt of our godlessness, this is the cost of our carnality, the pain of our promiscuity.
What is this I see? Can it be? Could it be?
Someone must be praying!
Someone must be on their knees with an open Bible!
Someone, somewhere must be battling a spiritual warfare for time and eternity!
Look closely, she is not dead yet!
She is moving, yes, she is stirring, there is still life in her!
She is rising in the street, bloodied and bruised, but unconquered and unconquerable, and now stronger after the fight.
Truth, Almighty, Eternal, Glorious, Truth is rising again!
