If we hold onto our faith in Christ’s sin atonement on our behalf, we are righteous and holy in God’s eyes.
Why, then, the current age of complacency and self seeking in the church? From where comes the divine disconnect?
Could it be that the commands of Christ interfere often with our plans, so we choose to go our own way?
Do we then become practical atheists? Do we start denying the word of God piece by piece until we reach a level of relative comfort, a place where we can barely hold onto our hope of Heaven, but still maintain a steady grip on this life?
Is the alternative that distasteful?
Is living a Christ centered life that impossible? Or is it just difficult, and we don’t like difficult?
