God’s Track Record –
What we are tracing here is not Church history, but the track record of the mighty deeds of God over the last 2000 years. However, there have been four movements that have tried to cover up those mighty deeds, making it difficult for us to see and acknowledge them: Roman Catholicism, Protestant cessationism, Enlightenment philosophy and secular atheism. Each of these movements comes with its own distinct motives for covering up the track record of God. If you don’t believe God did any deeds in the past, you are unlikely to pray for him to “renew them in our time” (Habakkuk 3:2).
