Yesterday, I wrote about the Texas Abortion Law. Same with the day before. Why am I so adamant about getting this message across? Honestly, it is a source of division even within my family. I’m the nut-job, religious freak who keeps bringing Jesus into the conversation. People tend to avoid that. Why won’t I just let it go?
I’ll tell you why. God made himself known to me in a BIG way, June 13, 2007, and my life has not been the same since. He saved my life, took away my alcoholism, and opened my eyes to see. I HATED the idea of anyone trying to push Jesus on me. Now, here I am, telling of his goodness to all who will hear!
It All Makes Sense
I used to think all the religious stuff was garbage. I was terribly wrong. My hatred and desire to sin blinded me. In God’s eyes, I was a worker of lawlessness. Not in my eyes, mind you. His eyes.
I see that now. It all makes sense. All of it. Jesus and his death, burial, and resurrection. All the prophecy. Many different authors in many different places over many centuries. It all proves to be true.
Archeological findings. Linguistic studies. Astrological and geoscience evidence.
Then there are the changed lives. The born-again crowd. You know what I’m talking about. Everyone knows when someone has “got Jesus.” Something happens to them.
Just let it go?
The bible explains this human phenomenon.
And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God. John 3:19-21
So, tell me. How’s this sexual revolution business working out for you? How’s the lack of accountability going? Does it make you feel whole or degraded? How about abortions? Do they empower you or do they leave you with a sense of inner, private grief? How about single-parenting? How’s that working out for you? How’s that working out for the kids?
Maybe the answer is to dive into homosexuality and transgenderism? How’s that working out? Or maybe we take sex out of it all together or change it depending upon our mood? Are our children becoming more or less confused?
The bible tells us of a better way. For those of us who truly listen, we hear truth in the pages of our bibles. Truth that is foundational.
Just let it go? I don’t think so. The lake of fire is real. So is heaven.
