No contradiction in my mind when you consider it is not always convenient to leave the cities. So for those who have no opportunity now to move your families to the country, then the second option--do it later, choosing two paths when Sunday is mandated: Small cities, then country home, or move direct to the country. I am just saying what she says--apply it as circumstances dictate. Blessings, Charles

This idea of leaving the cities reminds me of the old show Green Acers. In this modern times people have sought to leave the cities for the countryside or the suburbs only to find that the human elements exist no matter where you go. God said that He would provide an escape, a way out for His people. Your way out may very well be in the city, God may need you a witness in the city. Jesus says
English Standard Version
Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will keep it. (Luke 17:33)
The Master may have need for you in the city; you may need to lose your life in order to keep it.
This reminds me. I think you would enjoy a book called "The Cross and Its Shadow" by Steven Haskle.

At the end of each chapter it shows the type and anti type. And even covers more than that...
