A PLEA TO PASTORS AND CHRISTIAN LEADERS
(continued from https://fstdt.com/LW.YFKB3J4RV3)
Violence, as in Sodom and Gomorrah, accompanies widespread sexual license, already evident in the millions of abortions performed each year. Why are we surprised when violence emerges from behind the closed doors of clinics, and into our schools and eventually, our streets and homes? Decline will be swift and painful and Christians will not escape the trauma in this world. We can look forward to eternity, which in all its glory will be a blessed aftermath. But tribulation here and now is coming unless we turn our society around. Only Christians can do this, for we are the only ones willing to stick it out.
Or so one would think.
There aren't many folks in this fight, but this is why we are. It simply represents the essence of who people are, and who Christ is. We don't know how much impact we can have, but we know we are called to try. It would be encouraging to have more Christians join us.
"Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to fables."
(2 Timothy 4:2-4 NKJV)
