Are you grieved
that our culture thinks so little of the God who created us and the world in
which we live that they accept when our Sovereign, Holy God is reduced to a caricature
or a joke in a monologue? I mean, where is their fear? Not just reverential
fear, I’m talking real out and out fear of Him who is able to destroy both soul
and body in hell.
think it’s just a sign of the times and the prophesied falling away?
18:8, Jesus asked a question, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He

but it’s not. He’s telling of things to come and trying to make us think.

the TRUTH of the Holy Scriptures they may have known
from childhood or as an adult that brought
us to Christ?
I was first made aware of the 2007-2008
best-selling book, THE SHACK, by a co-worker, who stated, “This is the best
book I have ever read.” I accepted the book and took it home to read because
the cover listed raves reviews by Eugene Peterson, the author of The Message,
and Michael W. Smith, Christian recording artist. Nevertheless, it sat on my
nightstand for weeks and for some reason, I couldn’t bring myself to read it.
The day I decided to return the unread book to my co-worker, I received a
letter and monthly catalog from Southwest Radio Church. The correspondence read,
“The Shack” teaches New Age thought.
“Ah-ha!” I thought, “Now I know why I
couldn’t read this book.”
The Holy Spirit had kept me from
reading until I could be warned of the errors within. Then He gave me the
desire to read as an exercise in discernment.
