It is TRUE: most people value comfort and the status quo above all else.
You can tell people “Things are going to change and they’re never going to be the way you remember them ever again.”
The almost-universal response is “No it isn’t.”
But the same people who deny that things are changing are the same people who complain the loudest when the changes they deny are happening take place.
Like in health care and insurance, politics, world government, societal norms, religion, Christianity.
Most men place a HIGH, HIGH value on their comfort.
Even more place a HIGH value on not rocking the boat and maintaining what they have.
These are reason why men are taken totally by surprise whenever the status quo suddenly changes. Despite the centuries of warnings; despite the clear notice of what is to come; despite the feelings of apprehension: men cling to what they have today and do not want to think about changes to their routine.
History is replete with many examples of normal life one day turning extremely UN-NORMAL in a matter of hours.
Yet, the basic human reaction seems to be to deny that this can happen.
IS the reader prepared for what is soon to come to pass?
OR does the reader have his head buried firmly in the ground?
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”
There is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God.
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
