MODERNS: Too Busy For the Truth?

busy

“And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
–1JOHN 2:17

The modern world is a BUSY place.

It was declared to be so HUNDREDS of YEARS ago in God’s Word.

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.”
–Daniel 12:4

BUSY modern man is a part of that BUSY world.

So much so, it might be said that MODERNS ARE TOO BUSY FOR THE TRUTH.

‘You can’t handle the truth’: 96 percent of Americans admit to lying – 96 percent admit to lying?

The other four percent are lying.

“How can you say such a thing?”

After all, it appears that MOST claim to want the truth.

But is this claim the truth?

“People often claim to hunger for truth, but seldom like the taste when it’s served up.”
George R.R. Martin

Determining the truth is particularly difficult for the modern person–which is one reason most moderns do NOT believe the truth of God’s Word (the ONLY source of truth).

  1. Determining the truth takes TIME–and who has the time to delve into stories to check their truthfulness?
  2. Determining the truth takes access to information one KNOWS to be true–and this is VERY difficult for those living in a world where, it has been said, “Everything is a lie.”  
  3. IF one lives in a world which is largely false, then how is one to know a lie from the truth?
  4. The faced-paced speed of life ensures that almost everyone dwelling upon the earth just listens to the lies and shrugs.  “What am I supposed to do about it?  I’m only one person.”

UNLESS one wishes to be HOUNDED by the world, it is probably EASIER for the modern to just ‘go with the flow‘ and accept the stories, the lies and the falsehoods with which he is DAILY bombarded.

This does NOTHING for the modern’s eternal destination.

HOWEVER, the modern appears to be too busy to have any concern about his “eternal reward.”

And, make no mistake, modern man does believe he leads a BUSY life–probably busier than any who have lived up to this point.

But, does this make modern man too busy for the truth?

DOES the reader know anyone who complains about their life being ‘too busy’?

HAS the reader ever wondered if such a person is ‘too busy’ for the truth?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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
