That seems a bit depressing and negative. I think these words are still known and used by good people throughout the world. Unfortunately it is the bad people and actions that get most of the publicity.

So true.
“Lord, they have killed your prophets, they have torn down your altars, and I alone am left, and they are seeking my life.”

But what is God’s response to him? “I have left for myself seven thousand men who have not knelt to Baal.”
But those 7,000 must speak it out loud, long and clear.
They must do their best, but remember that Elijah did not hear them. It is only the ultimate victory that is assured.
i don't know
i know lots of people who live by those words
i am writing a memorial piece for a man in our community
he was a good friend to us
i am titling it "a man of few words but who was true to his word"

the news papers and media love a shocking story
meanwhile there are lots of good people leading quiet lives
Out of billions who know not the language can those who do know and practise it survive? Many pretend to know the 3,000-year-old Irish language but do not use it.
if you mean Gaelic i'm sure we have some people who speak it here
just about everything is spoken somewhere in the USA
we even have our own versions of English
a few people on my island still speak english
with pronunciations and syntax so different
that it sounds like a different language
There are people who still believe in those things, but they are being overwhelmed by the massive amount of greed and selfishness in the world.
Yes. And they are being overwhelmed by deliberate antipathy on the part of many.
no i don't believe there are "massive amounts of greed and selfishness"
i live in a place were people are still kind
even basically honorable
the world has always been where the powerful can be greedy
those who are not honorable have no compunction about stepping on others
they make the world seem mean
but the meek still inherit the earth
because life does go on
the mean and greedy do no stamp out civilization
