Here we are as a church - still practicing wickedness... Still reveling in wickedness... The excuse of Government control of churches is gone... You can't blame your government for twisting the preaching or dictating the message... The excuse of persecution is gone - you can't blame the threat of violence... The excuse of another religion holding dominion over us in civil affairs is gone... No excuse that there is no access to the Word.... No excuse that we have to go some place special to worship and pray... God in His faithfulness has removed these roadblocks - and yet we STILL will not cry out to Him... We still will not HEAR God.... Confess and own our own wickedness - that we LOVE to be of the world... Love the scandal, love the sexual mischief, love the revelry, love driving others down, love the error.... All the excuses are simply lies... Self-delusion... All that remains is our own love of the darkness and our stiff-necked pride. Deuteronomy 32:20 - Faithless children... Know that the judgment must first start at the sanctuary.. 1st Peter 6:9, Ezekiel 9:6.. WE know this!
