Pondering Our Times

We still have the promises of God intact. We can, perhaps, be as thankful for 1 Timothy 2:1-3 as we should have been all of our lives. Why do Christians expect more than that in this world?

We still have tolerance for religious freedom. How has it ever been more than tolerance for idolatry?

We still have the truth about sexual expression in a holy way. Why do Christians obsess over one form of sexual sin and virtually ignore fornication and adultery?

We still have the right to marry as Christians and to pursue Christian marriage. Why do Christians expect the godless to desire that for themselves?

We still have the Godly teaching about marriage. Why do Christians think a secular government could ever define what is right in God's eyes?

We still live as citizens in the richest, most powerful and prosperous country the world has ever known. Why do Christians think materialism and the pursuit of pleasure is not a temptation?

We still have the truth about good and evil. Why do Christians expect that evil will not touch them in this mortal life?

We still have the truth about the faith of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Why do Christians expect current Americans to care what primitive people in the past thought?

We still have the Kingdom of Heaven, available right now spiritually, and soon materially. Why are Christians outraged that Bible prophecy is accurate?

Let's first seek His Kingdom and His righteousness, and the food and clothing will be added to us. Why do Christians deem themselves entitled to more?
