Did George Orwell’s ‘1984’ Prophetic Message Manifest Yesterday?

If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—foreMany students are rightly concerned about their safety, security, and lives—but they, like a majority of us, are turning to the wrong entity to protect them. Most of us in God’s house are doing the same thing in various ways. We look to food, entertainment, sex, fashion, social media kudos and so much more, to fill the void that only Christ can fill. We are attempting the impossible, trying to find satisfaction—and security—apart from God. We’re OK with it—but God isn’t.ver.” So writes George Orwell in his eerily prophetic novel, 1984. If you’re not concerned about where America is nowadays, and where we’re heading, you’re not paying attention. But if you’re only concerned, you’re wasting your time and energy. Merely being concerned about a problem never does anything to solve it. Never mind a school walkout. We, God’s people, need to start really walking with the Lord. The future of our nation depends upon it.

Yesterday’s 17-minute National School Walkout was good—and bad. In fact, it was very bad. The demonstration designed to eulogize the 17 lives lost during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, to appeal for stricter gun control, was a telling sign that, unlike any other time in America, an alarming number of young people are mistaking the government for God. Brace yourself, because this will not end well if we continue on this path.
