The time must come when you, as well as others, must go down the dark valley of the shadow of death. The hour must come when you, like all your forefathers, must sicken and die. The time may be near or far off. God only knows. But whenever the time may be, I ask again, What are you going to do? Where do you plan to turn for comfort? On what do you plan to rest your soul? On what do you plan to build your hope? From where will you get your relief?
I plead with you not to ignore these questions. Allow them to work on your conscience, and do not rest until you can give them a satisfactory answer. Do not play with that precious gift, an immortal soul. Do not defer the consideration of the matter to a more convenient time. Do not presume on a death-bed repentance. The most important business surely ought not be left to the last.
One dying thief was saved that men might not despair, but only one that none might presume.
I repeat the question. I am sure that it deserves an answer. “What will you do when you are sick?”
Many Christians today are unaware of how much the Inklings were influenced by Occultism and esoteric philosophers, and how this dark cloud in their history cannot help but adversely affect their literary works, their theology, and even their Christian witness.
Have you ever felt like a mouse in a maze? Perhaps there is a spiritual reason we feel like we are scurrying around for no earthly reason.
Considering the deadly upheavals rising in the world today, some Christians who are spiritually asleep will be unmindful of the coming judgment. During their slumber, they will be oblivious to the spiritual conditions of their surroundings. While asleep, in fact, the enemy will have advanced against them. And then, one day soon, these Christian dreamers will experience a rude awakening when the alarm of God sounds off and they are tossed from their soft warm beds.
In a very real sense, Satan and his myriad of fallen angels are perfectly positioned like ethereal transmitters to disperse their deadly falsehoods to unsuspecting humanity below in order to undermine the truth of God. As professing Christians, what signal are we sending out to counter this vile static?
Without truth, all the people on the earth would be lost in a stormy tempest of lies without a lighthouse to guide them to safe harbor. They would have no faith to chart their course, no hope in which to anchor their souls to God, and no love to fill their sails. Is this not the dire situation we are beginning to witness in the world today? How many poor souls are now living in fear instead of faith, depression instead of hope, and anger instead of love?
Have you noticed that this world seems to be shifting more and more into a trajectory of chaos and uncertainty? Surely in an age of global connectivity, scientific precision and meticulous social engineering, we should be achieving a high level of stability, but this is not the case. Instead we are witnessing a gathering swell of rage, fear, depression, and a growing lust for drugs, alcohol, and pornography that is tearing at the moral fabric of our society. Why is this?
In recent years, the doctrine of “Christian liberty” has been frequently invoked as a God-given right which allows the individual believer to pursue an unspecified range of worldly activities limited only by his or her “spiritually-informed” conscience. The following imaginary discourse is presented to provoke the reader to consider the real possibility that the believer’s personal liberty is not so easily exercised when challenged by the Bible’s teaching on the matter, especially in light of the spiritual ramifications to one’s Christian testimony and service to others…
