We make hundreds of choices everyday. We have choices for everything from accessories for our cell phone to how many toppings we want on a pizza. Pepperoni, mushrooms, etc. We have over 300 channels to watch on TV. We can go to movie theaters with 6 screens to over 20 screens. Coffee is no longer regular or decaf – small, grande, venti, pineapple, chocolate, honey, caramel, peanut butter, skinny, fat-free latte.
When you buy a car, its all about options.
Books…You can buy a book on any subject and there are tons of books on any given subject. Dogs, cars, cooking, computers, baseball – whatever.
Well, Jesus, who do you think you are? The world says there is Buddha, Allah, Mohammed, there is Judiaism, Scientology, New Age, Wicca, and they all say that they lead to the same ultimate oasis – this place called paradise.
Again Jesus says, “I am The Way.”
This flies in the face of everything our world believes.
So, now we are labeled as intolerant and narrow minded.
Its easy for the world to buy into the whole God thing. They try to form God into what they think He should be not who He really is. The problem….the real problem is they won’t accept Jesus.
Everything Jesus says is totally opposite of what we are taught to believe.
OK. So the world says I’m supposed to be moral and good and treat others the way we want to be treated. What is morality? Whose morals do you follow? Who is to say what good is?
Jesus said that only God is good. If that is true then good is on a whole different level then what we think good to be.
Treat others the way we want to be treated. Really? To what extent?
If you hit me, I want to knock your teeth out UFC style.
If you stab me in the back, I stab you right back.
If you have a different skin color or come from a different culture it means you are not like me so I get to make fun of you and crude jokes.
The world views everybody as potentially good. As long as your good side out weighs the bad side then the world says that they will overlook the bad.
THE WORLD’S SYSTEM IS BROKEN!
It is broken. Beyond repair. There is no fixing it. The only way to fix what is wrong in the world is to implement a new system. God’s system.
What are we supposed to warn about?
Jesus said – Love God and Love your neighbor as yourself.
If you do not sound the alarm, you do not love God or your neighbor. God said how you love people is directly connected to how you love Him.
Do you know someone who you need to sound the alarm to?
Are you a Christian and you are not sounding the alarm? Have you ever sounded the alarm?
Have you ever professed Jesus as Savior and LORD?
You can say that you don’t believe me. The Bible says that if you don’t believe the Bible, the Word of God, then you are a fool and if Jesus came back tonight, right now, the church would be gone and you would be left behind.
