A.J. Liebling wrote The Road Back To Paris, an account of the war in North Africa. He noted that an American pilot in a P-38 flew too low while strafing a line of German trucks. His right wing glanced off a telephone pole. A one-engine plane would have crashed, killing him. The blow instead turned the P-38 upside down, the pilot gripping the stick so hard it turned his hand black and blue. Up and over he steadied the plane and flew back to base. P. 244
The Faith Jesus established on Pentecost, and the faith Jesus inspires in his disciples, is sturdy like that P-38. It can be blown over and blown down; beaten flat by circumstances and entirely deflated. Only to bellows itself into swelling resurgence. Satan can knock on the Faith, but never topple it. He can knock on the faithful and knock us down…but never out. The Christian Faith has never been leveled in conflict. Christians in faith never hear the ref count 10.
