A WORLD OF NO FAITH: In God or His Son, Jesus Christ

empty faith METER

The world we now inhabit is largely one of NO faith in God or His Son, Jesus Christ.

Oh, this world DOES exhibit a little a little faith–but it is a faith in the things of this world.

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:16

The reader may now protest, “But what of all the churches in the world?”

But, to ask such a question during the times we now live, reveals the reader to be ignorant of the actual condition of such things.

(Satan’s BIG eternal downfall: the devil is not so very good at creating ANYTHING original.  Satan DOES, however, have an almost unlimited capacity for counterfeiting (creating an almost exact copy) of that which  has already been created by someone else.)

Present-day folk may not have devolved into a mass of mockers and scoffers–yet.

But, if they haven’t yet, they soon will.

“How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.”
–Jude 1:18

“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
–2PETER 3:3-4

A great deal of the mocking and scoffing comes from the churches, as many church folk can’t help but notice the wide void between what they are told and what they can see happening with their own eyes.

And so, the church folk either 1- drift away; or, 2- look for something more powerful to replace the weak tea they’ve been drinking for so long.

Which is a BIG reason folks have placed their faith in any number of man-created schemes instead of the Creator of All.

Some have faith in the government to fix a person’s daily problems.

“Where’s my stimulus check?  Once I get that check, things will be a LOT better around here!”

Others have faith in modern medicine to fix that which ails a person.

“You better see a doctor about that cough.”

And a great many have faith in that most modern of religions–science–to fix the world’s woes.

“I know climate change is a big problem, but once we get the scientists all working on it, THEN they will soon enough fix things!”

We live LARGELY in a world of NO faith.

Which reminds one of a question Jesus Himself once asked his apostles:

“Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?”
–Luke 18:8

DOES the reader believe he is a “person of faith“?

DOES the reader believe he believes the Bible?

WHAT does the reader believe when science (or some other worldly source) publishes a “new finding” which casts doubt on God’s Word?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“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

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
