In every war there are cowards and heroes: those who succumb to fear, and retreat into hiding, and those who in spite of threat to themselves, put their lives in certain harms way in order to save, if not one, but many lives.
And then there are the regular soldier joes, most of whom are unknown, who just keep putting one foot in front of the other, not giving up or backing down, daily fighting the good fight until each battle front is won and finally the war.
These soldiers fight loneliness, fatigue,:extreme conditions, shell shock, PTSD, sickness, attack, injury, death, loss of loved ones and all the rest of the horrors of war and yet they stand and they stand, until they fall.
And so it is in the war between the Kingdom of God and the Kingdom of Man, and so it is in the culture wars. What kind of soldier will you be this year will you run or will you stand?
This year I will stand as a Christian!
I will not give up!
I don't care how many 'likes' I get on Facebook,
I don't care how many 'comments' or 'shares' I get, I don't care who unfriends me.
I don't care. I don't care
I don't care who ignores me, I don't care who unfollows me.
I don't care who tries to offend me, who I make angry or who angers me. I don't care who rejects or opposes me on or offline.
I don't care.
I don't care who abuses me, who corrects me, who challenges me, who calls me names.
I don't care who blocks me, if Facebook punishes me, if the police or the government lock me up!
I don't care!
I will stand.
I don't care if the feminists hate me, I don't care if the homosexual lobby rail against me, I don't care if Islam wants to see me with no head.
I don't even care if the abortionists want to see me carved up and dead.

I will fight and I will not give up, stand and not be knocked down, speak and I will not be shut up, write and I will not be shut down.
