The Comfort of Convenience

COMFORT

There are THREE points to be made in this piece.

1- Comfort or convenience: which is it?

The first point has to do with someone who said–just this past week–“You are always talking about how COMFORT is a person’s HIGHEST value.  But you just said that people will value CONVENIENCE.  Which is it?  COMFORT or CONVENIENCE?”

Part of the answer to this ran along the lines ofA person’s convenience IS a part of a person’s comfort.”

Although many do NOT see it this way, all the reader needs to do is think a bit on the matter.

CONVENIENCE is used as a prime selling point in MANY advertisements.  The ways that convenience leads to a person’s increased comfort (for example, the COMFORT of buying a new car to be had by enjoying the CONVENIENCE that the new, practically flawless vehicle will bring over the customer’s older model) MAY NOT be specifically spoken in the advertisements, but the concept is there and is clearly understood by potential customers.

IN FACT, ‘convenience’ is used as a selling point in advertisements of almost ALL end times products, particularly those products which emphasize the customers’ ‘comfort.’

And so, POINT ONE is “A person’s CONVENIENCE is usually a part of his COMFORT in some way.”

2- End times men value their TIME over almost anything else.

MANY believe their time is much more important than someone else’s time.

Therefore, end times men always keep an eye out for those products/circumstances/services which promise them CONVENIENCE.

3- Thirdly, one of the PRIME attractions the wicked world will dangle in front of end times man will be the claim that doing THIS or THAT will ‘save him time’; i.e., will make his life more CONVENIENT.

REGARDLESS OF WHAT GOD’S WORD WARNS ABOUT DOING ‘THIS or “THAT.’

These THREE points all add up to ONE conclusion.

It appears VERY likely that end times man will value his convenience OVER God’s Word.

So, naturally, Satan will appeal to a man’s COMFORT and CONVENIENCE in order to snare him.

DOES the reader place a high value on his CONVENIENCE?

DOES the reader believe that modern ‘time-saving’ devices are a wonder and marvel?

HAS the reader EVER asked himself what he would do without the benefits of modern time-savers?

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.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

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
