sometimes things don’t seem so black and white do they? I find that this is true most of the time in the post-modern world in which we live. constantly people are trying to support things that they think are totally “right-on” in their agenda, yet there are so many other voices screaming at them, telling them that they can’t “impose their beliefs on me!” have you been apart of this? is it even right? do you believe in absolute truth? I do. things are black and white. in fact, the bible is black and white. yes, it has black ink and white pages, but it’s a lot more black and white then what it is in the physical world. it contains those things black and white thoughts that our culture is very rapidly moving away from. starting with absolute truth and working its way down to abortion, homosexuality, marriage rights, family life, life after death, and ultimately is their even a God?
the world we live in is failing. it’s failing to do exactly what the Bible calls us to do, and that is to glorify God. we live in a fallen world. the world wants us to think that we can’t have truth. yet Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6). but people don’t want to hear that today do they? they want to live in their big American houses and enjoy the pleasures of this world. Paul told Timothy in 2nd Timothy that “The time will come… and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables (2 Tim. 4:3-4). has that time come? I think so. it’s been here awhile. probably before I was even born.
so what now? Repent and believe in the gospel. Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” that’s pretty much black and white. turn to Christ today. and if you have already done this, then go read your Bible. learn what it has to say about this life. go to church. commune with other believers and enjoy the fellowship of the body of Christ.
this world is only fading away, but Christ is forever. I could spend the rest of my life telling people about this and that is what I am called to do. my heart is heavy today. heavy because so many people may spend the rest of their lives pursuing this world, when Christ is what they need. please, I beg you, for your eternal soul is at stake.
