644: The Knock-Out Punch // Spiritual Lessons from Alfred the Great 03 (Eric Ludy)
This is the third episode in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series drawing on the legendary life of Alfred the Great. In this particular episode he draws a strong parallel between the fractured kingdoms of Britannia in 865 with the denominationalized Church of Jesus Christ in the year 2021. Alfred is going to inherit a broken system when he was crowned king, just as we are inheriting a fault-filled Church system as we step into our faith-walk with Christ. However, unlike many of us, Alfred is going to spend his life fixing that which is broken instead of just accepting its unhealthy state. And just like in Alfred’s day — the future of decency, honor, liberty, and truth depend upon someone rising up and doing something about the impending doom.
