Thank you, BlackEagle -
We may, indeed, see the inside of a prison cell if things continue as they are.
Speaking against homosexuality is hate speech right now; sooner or later Christians are going to be arrested for doing so -
You are familiar with the fact that a horse will run back into a burning barn after they have been brought out of it to save them, aren’t you? It is because the barn is HOME to them – it has always been safety and comfort, where they are fed and where they are given loving care. Many people cannot comprehend that, and feel that it is a lack of intelligence on the part of the horse to do this. Consider this item I read some time ago:
When the Bastille, the most famous prison in Paris, was about to be destroyed in 1789, a convict was brought out who had been confined in one of its gloomy cells for many years. But instead of joyfully welcoming his liberty, he begged to be taken back. It had been such a long time since he had seen the sunshine that his eyes could not endure its brightness. His only desire was to die in the murky dungeon where he had been a captive.
Whether its horses or people, the result is the same; some become comfortable in their surroundings, and prefer them to any change – even if those surroundings are on the eve of destruction, and nothing but flames are in their immediate future.
John 3:17-21 (KJV);
“For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 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.”
What do you want for your future; the familiar bleakness, or GLORY for eternity? The thought of such a change can be frightening, but does not have to be. Familiarize yourself with the Bible and the message from God contained in it. Join yourself to a good body of believers where the truth is taught. Don't be satisfied with staying in the burning barn - -
May God bless each one of you -
