They Shall Answer to God
| After over
fifty-five years of attempting to preach I have come to see many things
among people who claim to be Christians. One of the most distressing is
the constant agitation of some who are ever trying to come up with
something new and novel that might make them look scholarly. They are not
content to simply abide in the Word as revealed but are always suggesting
something strange and at variance with the simple truth.
Some press their little quirks to never-ending strife and division among brethren. They seem malcontent unless they are involved in some kind of fight with other brethren. Trying to live a Christ-like life and helping others do the same has slipped from their emphasis. Everything must conform to whatever they think or sparks fly. I cannot believe God is pleased with that behavior and wonder why that seems so attractive.
People need guidance, support, direction, encouragement, correction and not the constant bickering that seems to be the delight among many. How do we help each other get to heaven if we put self before God?
