Chess to me seems to indicate a church and state relationship times two. But I see no Bible there or a piece that represents God. Today we have secularism (atheism-no God allowed), ideology and state that is waging its own wars and crusades with and against humanity. The aim is to knock Christianity off the board with much protest, mocking & outrage.
With chess the pieces are quiet and that permits limited time to think, with secular belief the priests of humanism want to do the thinking for you. The so called ‘free thinkers’ don’t want religious people to think, just follow the rules of an unstable society that doesn’t really know where it is going or where it has come from, try as it might.
The Christian church has so very often been under attack and accusation, in the time of the Patriarchs, the prophets, the judges, Esther, Kings, Pharaohs, Caesars, Herod’s, Hitler’s and so. Seemingly hanging by a thread, pursued and persecuted on many fronts yet its purposes remain, solid as a rock.God still moves in the high and low places and His face is against those who do evil.Psalm 34:1-22.
