Decades of corruption and massive leadership failures in Lebanon led to an economic and political breakdown in 2019. Today, the country’s future remains in limbo.
“After the Civil War ended in 1990, there was a period of rebuilding. That rebuilding period devolved over 30 years into economic collapse,” Pierre Houssney of Horizons International says.
“All of the warlords of the Civil War just took off their camo uniforms, put on suits, and became politicians.”
Multiple calamities have led to unexpected spiritual results. “That’s a painful truth about humanity, right? It is like the prodigal son story. When he has his father’s inheritance and is going off and spending freely, he’s happy. He doesn’t feel like he needs God,” Houssney continues.
“But when he runs out of money and finds himself in the filth among the pigs, that’s when he realizes his need for his father.”
