Message From God?
Often I get accused of misrepresenting God or at least misrepresenting the Christian view of Him. Here is a little column - actually more like a rant - I found in the Nashville newspaper The Tennessean. And it is written by a Christian, for Christians:
Christians, what have we become?
Every day brings another storm — another flood — another earthquake — another tsunami — another disaster — another war — more disease — more drought — more depravity — more beatings — more deaths –more thievery — more injustice — more perversion — more lies and deceit — ever increasing in frequency and severity.
What will it take for us to once again fear God, believe and repent in humility and faith?
The world is spinning out of control and starving for answers to the issues of life while go-along-to-get-along Christians in all their biblical ignorance and apathy exchange flattery and praise for one another with hearts and mouths full of silly songs, sayings and slogans from serpentine salesmen that haven’t the power to save anyone.
Well, I certainly wish you guys and gals would get it together so the rest of us can live in safety and security!
The writer, Paul Proctor, goes on to ask "what is our just and holy God saying to us right now?"
May I suggest an answer?
Nothing. Maybe nothing at all.
Maybe we humans should all lock arms and work together in order to meet the challenges of nature and life, and not waste time and effort seeking assistance and guidance from the beyond the skies.
Just a thought.
