“A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways” — James 1:8
Some things are true and some things are false. I regard that as an axiom; but there are many persons who evidently do not believe it. The current principle of the present age seems to be, “Some things are either true or false, according to the point of view from which you look at them. Black is white, and white is black according to circumstances; and it does not particularly matter which you call it. Truth of course is true, but it would be rude to say that the opposite is a lie; we must not be bigoted, but remember the motto, ‘So many men, so many minds.'”
Our forefathers were particular about maintaining landmarks; they had strong notions about fixed points of revealed doctrine, and were very tenacious of what they believed to be scriptural; their fields were protected by hedges and ditches. But their sons have now grubbed up the hedges, filled up the ditches, laid all level, and played at leap-frog with the boundary stones. The school of modern thought laughs at the ridiculous positiveness of Reformers and Puritans; it is advancing in glorious liberality, and before long will publish a grand alliance between heaven and hell, or, rather, an amalgamation of the two establishments upon terms of mutual concession, allowing falsehood and truth to lie side by side, like the lion with the lamb. read more…
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…
“A grave, wherever found, preaches a short and pithy sermon to the soul.” ― Nathaniel Hawthorne.
Look for a minute into the grave….
Each one of you must die. If I were addressing an assembly of the sages of the world, I should say, “All your combined wisdom cannot lengthen the days of one of you even a single minute. You may reckon the distance of the stars and weigh worlds, but you cannot tell me when one of you will die, nor how many grains of sand are left behind in the hourglass of time which shows the exit of each spirit from the world.”
Now you have so many days and in one of those days there will be the poison of death. I do not know which one. It may be tomorrow. It may not be until many days have gone by. Is it not foolish, therefore, to be living in this world without a thought of what you will do at last?
I’m sure you’ve seen the phenomenon before. You’re sitting there watching a baseball game on TV when all of a sudden a large sign pops up in the stands behind the batter’s box reading, “JOHN 3:16.” It’s a well-known technique of stealth evangelism and quick-strike Gospel proclamation that’s been around for decades at various televised sporting events. As soon as that sign appears, no doubt thousands of unsaved viewers are sent scrambling for a Bible to see what the hubbub is all about. But do they really?
