The Boiling Frog

Our fall from grace has happened so slowly that we must look at it in terms of decades and even centuries. What was outrageous in the ’90s, is commonplace today. And, what we did in the ’90s was only whispered about in the ’70s. Oh, and we never talked about THAT in the ’50s.

This slow creep of all things immoral has been happening so slowly that it’s hard to see it, unless some ‘half-alien’ points it out to us.

I’m that ‘half-alien’.

The problem is that there aren’t enough ‘half-aliens’ out there to make what we say remarkable enough to be believed.

Sin Destroys the Mind

Looking back over the events of the past week, one thing rings clear. Corruption and insanity go together. There’s a causal link between the two, and it is corruption that is the cause. And, we even have scientific proof to back up this assertion.

We have become insane, because we have chosen sin over righteousness.

Our founding fathers knew this, and even the worst of them – Benjamin Franklin – was clear on the need for morality and ethics for our freedom to be free. But, we lost our way and traded our freedom and sanity for pretty trinkets and shiny toys.

Making Peace with Madness

Our world is doomed. I know that this is not something that you want to accept, and I’m with you on this one. But, it doesn’t change the fact that everyone around us is growing more and more insane by the day. And, we need to accept this fact.

I struggle with this, a lot. And, I know that you do too. You wouldn’t be a child of God, if you weren’t grieved by the wickedness and madness that surrounds you.

So, how do we keep the peace of God, while the world falls apart?

And, we are going to need to, if we truly desire to serve God in the midst of the coming darkness.

We are ALL Insane

Read history.

Any history. Any country. All of it is completely insane. Thousands upon thousands of years of complete and utter madness.

Read the Bible.

How is it possible for the Children of Israel – in the wilderness – to be so crazy as to rebel against God?

Read your newspaper.

On second thought… don’t. The WRITERS of newspaper articles are certifiably insane, already. But, current events are even MORE insane.

It’s as if we have all been overcome by a mass psychosis. And, it’s all so very stupid. Mind-boggling idiocy. The mindless, brainless, knee-jerk absurdity of it all is almost beyond my ability to understand.

Of Sin and Hate

These are the Last Days. This wasn’t hard for you to figure out, especially after last week’s article. But, there is something about this time that still boggles my mind, as I’m sure that it does yours.

We knew that sin would rise. That’s an easy one to figure out. We all know about sin, since we struggle with it every single day.

But, hate?

I’m seeing it grow everywhere, and its voice is louder than ever. And, I find myself amazed.

WHY is there so much HATRED?

My heart is grieved at the amount of hatred and the lies that so many embrace willingly to fuel that hatred.

Sin in the Church

America suffers trouble and distress because our churches have turned their back upon God. They forgot the need to love the truth and obey God. They allowed heresy and sin to creep into their leadership. They became dens of iniquity, full of anger and without care for the suffering of their brethren.

The bitter heart of our churches is bearing fruit. This poisonous and toxic result of our sinful embrace of this life will choke what life is left in America.

Our cup of iniquity is full.

Judgment comes.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Ecumenicism, Elections and the Saudis

Yesterday, I was so caught up in the idea of rhythms and cycles that I didn’t leave myself enough time for writing. So, if you were wondering why there was no Shock Letter, that was one part of the reason. However, I also have a Bible class that I teach on Fridays, so that’s the other part.

Lord willing, I will be able to write about what I think about the rhythms and cycles that we see in history, and talk about what those rhythms and cycles tell us about the future. Hopefully, bad news will take the week off, so that we can talk about all that.

Truth is the New Extremism

Like you, I always thought that the Antichrist would be some really awful guy with a weird mustache, a loud voice and a bad skin condition – a kind of blond-haired Adolf Hitler. But, I doubt that the AC will be anywhere near that.

Except for the blond hair. My bet is still on the Antichrist being a blond.

My other bet is on how good he is at smooth talking, shaking hands and being just a regular, down-to-earth good guy. He’ll be just really, really NICE.

Oh, and his message will be:

Why can’t we all just get along?

And, those who can’t seem to just get along will be killed.

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Our Sin Runs Through It

As I look back on this week, I see a theme that runs through it – our sinfulness. We have made compromises on the truth. We have compromised our morality. And, we have chosen pastors who do the same.

And, when that happens, God sends strong delusions among us:

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

The word for ‘damned’ is the Greek word, krithosin – or, should be judged. And, THAT is what is happening right now. We are being judged by God.

Ebola – Next Wave, Incoming

We’ve had a pause in the Ebola infection rate, and everyone has breathed a sigh of relief and gone back to what they were doing.

It’s a nice feeling, right?

Of course, it’s too bad that feelings don’t matter, because pandemics come in waves, and each successive wave gets bigger and bigger – until it burns out.

However, burn-out only happens when enough people have died, so that there aren’t any more hosts for the pandemic to infect.

Do you want to wait around for ‘burn-out’ to happen?

Right. You aren’t insane.

Unfortunately, the rest of the world isn’t so lucky.
