One passage in this book illustrates what happened with the German population, those who stood by during the attempted genocide of the Jewish residents of that country. When the trains filled with Jews were forcibly being transported to Nazi run concentration camps, there was a Christian church near one train track. As the cars filled with Jews passed by, the congregation sang louder and louder to block out the reality of what was happening, to erase the truth.
The author relates what is occurring today here in this country. Is the direction we are travelling being ignored and the ‘big lie’ of our time winning through fear of retribution against those speaking the truth? Are we singing louder as that train continues down the track?
Andy Andrews asks a question: Why do the ages of our world’s greatest civilizations average around two-hundred years?
Why do these civilizations follow the same identifiable sequence___from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back into bondage?
We have the answer to reverse the sequence___the One who said: I am the truth; and the truth will set you free.
