It's Time To Return To The Lord

The pleasure seekers are everywhere. Each one goes about his or her interests. A weight of hedonism rests heavily upon us. This is precisely what the Bible describes as the peril of the last days. Men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, proud, blasphemers, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. II Timothy 3:1, 2 & 4

Sin is the origin of the world's trouble. The need is repentance.

Madness increases with the population masses. We hope but in vain that there are not enough demons to exploit the rage.

Thankfully, by death on a cross the Lord Jesus Christ has borne the punishment determined upon us. "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the Lord hath on him the iniquity of us all" Isaiah 53:6. By repentance, and faith in his death for us we can take part in God's grace and forgiveness.

Unfortunately, many good people are sitting on their hands.
In the meantime, precious young people are confused for lack of certainty. They can't be sure of anything except nothing is for sure. I'm glad I didn't grow up that way, but of course I'm old enough to remember days of relative innocence. We felt there were things we could depend on, such as: God and country.

But today's young people are left flat with little they can trust and almost nothing positive to identity with.

Who's going to fix the problem?

Someone said, "We have seen the enemy and the enemy is us."

We've allowed our churches to come under assault by every kind of evil idealism. It's the church's duty to lock arm and arm to defend the 'Word of God' and the gospel of Jesus Christ. It's time to take back our churches and do our part in caring for our world.

Many oppose the spread of religious good in any form. Supreme Court judge, Justice Douglas said in the case of Zorach v. Clauson, 343 U.S. 306 (1952) on behalf of a 6 to 3 majority Supreme Court:
"We sponsor an attitude on the part of government that shows no partiality to any one group...""To find in the constitution a requirement that the government show a callous indifference to religious groups. That would be preferring those who believe in no religion over those who believe. We find no constitutional requirement which makes it necessary for government to be hostile to religion and to throw its weight against efforts to widen the effective scope of religious influence."

If we have the will, we can widen the effective scope of religious influence.

Who's on the Lord's side? Come on over here.

We will all give an account in the Day of Judgment. God is affording us this opportunity to get right with Him.

Sincerely in Christ,
Mike Andrews
