So I’m at the Mojo Java Lounge today here in sunny downtown Spring Lake, and I walk by the bulletin board… and see this flyer from our good friends down at “Christ” Community “Church,” advertising a class on the Four Noble Truths as a method to solve our human problems.

Again I’m blown away.

“Christ” Community “Church” is one of the biggest, most popular churches in the area. It has consistently been… well, it’d have to shift waaaaaaay over to the right to be able to be classified as being liberal. The Unitarians are more conservative than “Christ” Community “Church.” And here they go, at it again

What blows me away is that there are so very, very many who would rather go and study how to contemplate the Four Noble Truths while picking navel lint than sit at the feet of Jesus and hear His eternal Word being taught. Frustrating… and unimaginably heartrending.

But, at the end of the day, not surprising.

Paul told us in II Timothy 4, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away [their] ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Boy, is that ever true…

And boy, it sure does look like we are definitely in the last of the last days, doesn’t it?

Luke 21:28, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh…”
