I Have Seen the Opposition, and He Is “Us”

Posted: March 29, 2021 in Uncategorized

One of the things that I have found really concerning in recent years is how much of the church opposes the Gospel. I’m sorry, there is no nicer way to say it. They care more about public acclaim than they do about truth. They try to make the Gospel fit the culture, rather than letting the Gospel mold the culture. Stand for the truth of God’s Word and it’s just as likely that the rock thrown at your head will be thrown by someone in the “church” as by any hardened atheist. Jesus said the one who loves me will obey me. (John 14:21-23) 

Here’s the thing, committed Christians will all run afoul of the culture. Jesus warned us of this very thing. We need to speak the truth in love, humbly remembering where we were when Jesus saved us. We need to do the things that Jesus did and we need to speak the truth. We need to understand that redefining sin to please the culture serves absolutely no one, because Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. We need to teach about love and grace, but we also need to teach about sin and repentance. We need to be both truthful and loving. The boundary on all teaching is God’s Word and the Church needs to honor that. 

I am starting to think there is a real need for evangelists to work within the church. After all, there is nothing adder than lost people who think they’re found. God could not have been clearer. Salvation comes by grace alone through faith alone and Jesus is the only way to the Father. Revival starts in the house of God.
