St. James says, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. (Jam 1:27)” On the evening of Easter Sunday, Aaron Wolf was suddenly taken from this earth to his home in heaven. We rejoice with Aaron even today in the resurrection of our Lord. But with such joy in Christ, we also mourn with those who mourn, especially his wife and six children, as well as his parents. As the executive editor for Chronicles Magazine and a frequent guest on Issues Etc, Aaron was a staunch defender of the Christian faith as he engaged the current culture with the sword of God’s Word. As a pastor I have been greatly encouraged by his unabashed confession. Aaron did not get caught up in pop-conservative talking points. Nor did he imagine that Christian denominations should forget about their differences in doctrine while they fight the culture war. No, his drive to defend the unborn, promote the institutions God has so graciously established in this world, and oppose all sorts of perversions and deviance came from his love for Christ his Savior in whom alone he was confident his sins were all forgiven and he was righteous before God (Rom 4:5).
Please follow the link below and consider donating to this fund for Aaron’s family. Caring for the fatherless and widowed Christians among us goes hand in hand with keeping oneself unspotted from the world. This is because it is a confession that we, as fellow redeemed, are not of this world. We bear one another’s burdens as Christ bore ours, not because we are trying to earn our way to heaven, but because God has already transferred us to the right hand of God with Christ (Eph 2:6). True religion is acting with such confidence as we worship the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ by the power of the Spirit of our God.
And please pray for the Wolf family.
