SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT: THE WORD OF GOD - Truth OR Dare?!





What Does A Faithful Christian Do
When
A Beloved Pastor Has Lost His Way
Through Apparent Indifference
To The Truth?
When
Visible Indifference To The Truth
Is Besmirching What Was Once 
A Committed-To-Christ Life?
When
Getting On With The Business Of Life
Is Seemingly Preferable
To Engaging In What Can Only Be Considered
Standing Up For Christ's Life?

Are We As Saints Of The Lord
Permitted To Say Which Part Of Christ's Words
- Christ's Character -
Should
- For Worldlings' Peace -
Be Set Aside?

Are We As Striving Christians
Equipped
To Tell The Living Eternal God
That His Commandments
Statutes
Laws And Covenants
Are To Be Set Aside
IF
In The Present State Of Things
They Will Roil The Prevailing Tide?

Are We Men?
Or
Are We God?
Are We Seeking Favor
Or
Are We The Ones Rewarding The Lord?

Can We Tell God
Where He Hid The Foundations Of The Earth?
Can We Go To God's Storehouses
AND
Send Snow To The Deserts Of The Earth?

Can We Heal Our Own Backslidings?
Can We In Our Own Grace Abide?
Can We Duel With The Devil
AND
Can We Raise Up A Soul Who Has Died?

Are We God?
Are We Men?
Do We Need The Savior?
Do We Need Angels Our Person's To Defend?

Who Are You?

I Am A Mere Mortal!
I Am A Child Of The Great King!
I Know My Need
My Limitations
I Know That I Cannot
As A Known-Natured Sinner
Stop My Self
The Eternal God Not To Offer Offence
BUT
I Have Taken The Lord As My Shepherd
AND
I Have Chosen In The Presence Of God To Abide!
I Have Decided To Follow Christ Jesus
AND
I
From His Face
Have Chosen Not To "Hide!"

I Can Say
That I Cannot Save Myself
AND
I Am Not Going To Try
For I Know That I Need The Redeemer
AND
It Is He Alone
Who To Heaven
Can Get Me Inside!

So ...?

The Bible Says
That In The Last Days
Men Will Not Abide Sound Doctrine
AND
Will
- From The Truth -
Fall Away
So
It Is Imperative
That As True Believers
We Harden Our Resolve
To Stay Upon The Glorious King's
To Eternal Life Highway
If We Desire To Fly Through The Skies!

Let Us Pray For Our Straying Brethren!
Let Us Lift Them Up To The Throne Of Grace!
Let Us Petition For Them To Humble Themselves
Before God Almighty
AND
That They Permit Him To Change Them
To Walk Faithfully
Upon The Straight And Narrow Way
Before They 
- Without Hope -
Die!

As For Ourselves
Let Us Not Get Complacent
Lest We Think We Stand
AND
Instead
We Spectacularly Fall!
Lest We Guide Others Into The Kingdom
AND
We Do Not Make It There At All!

Look To Your Selves, My Brethren!
Let No "Good Man" Be Your Strong Arm!
Let The God Of The New Jerusalem Temple
The God Of The City Of Zion Grand
Be To You
Your All And All!

Men Are Weak!
Men Are Liars!
Men Are Notable For Lighting
Old Satan's Fires!

Do Not Be Deceived!
God Is Not Mocked
AND
If Once Faithful Men
Against God
Commit Iniquity
Their Past Good Works
Won't Get Them Into The Golden City!
They'll Be Outside
With The Whoremongers
The Dogs
Sorcerers
And Those
Who Hate Christ The Lord!

Just Remember
My Brother, My Sister
It Is The Eternal God
Who "Wrote" Down The Words:

"Work Out Your OWN SOUL'S Salvation!"

Fear And Tremble!
That Is God's To You
Emphatic Word!

It Is Time
To Become
Bereans!!!
