If the whole world were to go east, would you have the courage to go west?
That thought was conveyed this morning by Ravi Zacharias, one of my spiritual heroes.
He was speaking as to how the current generation of adults are not teaching the college age young adults how to defend the gospel. We tell them the Bible is true, but we do not teach them why it is true.
Maybe we don’t know ourselves.
Maybe we don’t know how to teach them to go opposite of the flow.
The modern day flow of christian teaching in many churches is to make everyone think we are basically good people. And obviously there are a lot of people who buy into this false sense of security.
Even in that, we as individuals and thankfully some remaining churches in America willing to go opposite the flow.
Tomorrow, without being obnoxious as to who you are and what you believe, take inventory throughout the day of who you are comfortable with and why.
Take the following scripture and commit it to not only memory but to burn it into your heart.
“”And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
If everyone begins to walk away from the truth headed east, you head toward the truth headed west.
