When Christ Returns, Will He Find Faith on the Earth?

Oh, my Father, Iím so afraid we have lost our way! From the simple, childlike faith that Jesus taught, we have embraced a thousand different interpretations polluted and weakened by the foolish wisdom of this world, destroying its Power. Hundred of sects divided by man-made minutiae, powerless and ineffective, just paper exercises with no meaning. The words of Jesus are so pure and simple, the Truth so deep and clearóand yet we divide, bite and devour each other and destroy its efficacy and powerful meaning in our lives. Huge beautiful temples and edifices that might as well be dedicated to the false idols of Greece and Romeóexcept that these are American idols, developed over centuries, generation after generation, unrecognizable and unidentifiable from the simple words of Jesus. A thousand different interpretations cover and pollute the simple language of Jesus. While He was here, He spent a lot of time and words trying to remove the chaff from the wheat, the dross from the gold. Not what you wear, but who you are, not your lineage but the condition of your heart, not what men think about you, but what God knows about you. The teaching is so clear and plain, but we have twisted it, turned it and added to it, until it is unrecognizable, lukewarm and ineffective. No wonder God threatens to spew us out of His mouth! (Rev. 3:16) We pick His words to pieces, ignore what we donít like and bow down to a God we made in our own pitiful image. We have swallowed the camel of manís wisdom/opinion and choked on the simple truths of Scripture. We have crossed the tís and dotted the iís, but the essay is about us and alien to God. We left the simple concept of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit back at the foot of the cross.

Small wonder that Jesus asked, ďWhen I come back, will I find faith on the earth?Ē Poignant and sad question from the One who died for us.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
