A very interesting thing about the Progressive culture is their desire to destroy anything they don’t like.
They hide behind a hypocritical morality waged against those Christians or Conservatives they regard as haters, bigots, homophobes, Nazis, Fascists, etc.
But the reality is that they are simply terrified of spiritual truth.
And are desperately trying to silence any proclamation of the gospel of Christ. And any semblance of basic, biblical morality.
Because they are convicted by their own sins.
And they’re afraid that the Judgment of God might just be real.
And that they will stand before God without any hope.
This is the cold reality in our world today.
We are witnessing a world under the powerful conviction of sin.
Who do not want to repent of that sin. And who will shut down anything that causes doubt about their choices.
Banging Your Head Against the Wall
I’ve wasted a lot of time over the years trying to understand WHY there is this breakneck race into wickedness in the mainstream culture.
I’ve wasted too much time trying to find a way to discuss and reason with those who adopt such terrible and ridiculous ideas. To calmly talk with people I’ve worked with, or those in my family, or those who are friends, or even those in the churches!
But most of the time, it’s been a big waste of time. They simply weren’t interested in hearing anything of real biblical substance.
And I couldn’t understand why.
Yes. We should try to gently lead a person to Christ; if they are open to that. Though some are not interested in the Lord’s gentleness. Some only respond to hearing of the fearful judgment that Christ promises to those who reject Him.
Nevertheless, men and women will give a million and one reasons why they reject the Lord. How God has failed them. Or why they will not believe in a good God who tolerates evil in the world.
But, at the end of the day, it comes down to a basic, simple truth.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” (John 3:19-21)
The Lord is merciful to all who come to His Light. Who will allow Him to cleanse them and put a new heart within them.
