2021 Annual Meeting. Elder Chris McCool considers the spiritual warfare of Daniel and the Hebrew young men in Babylonian captivity. Babylon (a picture of the world apart from God in scripture) attempts to corrupt the young people of God by separating from godly influences, controlling education and teaching their sinful customs, changing their names, and attempting to change their diet. Instead of succumbing to the pressures of Babylon, Daniel and the Hebrew young men refused to defile themselves with the world and God blessed their faithfulness with favor before the king.
