It’s rather saddening considering the state of Christianity in the western world. So much of the gospel message has been compromised for the sake of politically correct ideology which has spread like a virus, reaching into the depths of all society.
People talk of love and more love, not about sin or righteousness or judgment.
Maybe those professing to be Christians think its solely the Spirits responsibility; John 16:8. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
9. Of sin, because they believe not on me;
10. Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
11. Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
I’m often told you can catch more with sweets, flies, bugs, something. I really tire of that allegory for people are much more than insects to be trapped. People are created in the image of GOD, lost in their own mind & life, which is often clouded in the fogs of sin.
There are definitely more eloquent writers than I out there who through the years have written volumes on Christian life, speech, issues, on salvation and repentance. Its just a bit disheartening to know the past couple generations have been so dumbed down by government education that there is very little knowledge of Christ actually out there in the minds of the people.
But it should be remembered as the Lord said in Deuteronomy 1:39’Moreover, your little ones who you said would become a prey, and your sons, who this day have no knowledge of good or evil, shall enter there, and I will give it to them and they shall possess it. Sometimes those who do not know of the Lord are those Chosen to inherit what their fathers squandered. Just as those Israelites who saw all the works of GOD in Egypt, who disbelieved, didn’t gst to enter into their promised land. The younger generation was chosen.
So as disheartening as may seem at this time of coffee & preps for work, there may just be a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
This new generation just may have a hope others cannot see at the moment. That hope is at the cross, where one suffered & died for our wickedness, who on the third day rose from death by His own authority and power.
Our blessed hope.
