If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that one contagion can be a far more insidious ‘invisible enemy’ than any virus, and that’s panic.
Fear is a kind of contagion all its own.
It can destroy, demoralize, and paralyze not just an individual, but entire crowds of people. For most of us who weren’t gripped by panic and worst-case scenarios, the last two years have looked a lot like that scene from Batman Begins … when the toxic drug fills the air and everyone is driven mad by fear.
What was it Liam Neeson’s character said?
That same line could just as easily have dropped from the lips of Little Lord Fauci himself.
For the last 2 years, elected officials, ‘authorities’ in lab coats, and TV personalities all worked together to turn that knob on public panic up to eleven.
Turning that fear off again turns out to be harder than they expected.
What we saw in a global scale with pandemic porn is nothing more than an extension of the same war The Enemy wages with us on the daily basis, trying to probe for points of insecurity, self-doubt, or shaky confidence… and exploit them.
But like every other temptation Old Slewfoot hits us with, for people who aren’t willing to bend the knee to fear and cower, there’s a remedy for fear.

While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
