Ain’t My Problem. Really?


Dear Christian: What is going on is not the world’s problem, it is our problem.  Allow me to explain where the responsibility rests.  What is wrong with America rests directly upon the shoulders of the American Christians.  That is the truth and there are two principles that support the contention that the problem is ours.

#1: According to 2 Chronicles 7: 14, the truth is as follows: If My people (Christ speaking) who are called by My name (Christians) will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Note that it did not say that the non believers needed to repent, although that may be true.  It said you and I must allow the light of Christ to shine on our hearts and see what wickedness rests therein.  Notice it did not say think about it, since this allows rationalization to enter into the conversation.

#2: According to Hosea 4: 6, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

Note that this says that Christians know little of God’s Word, which happens to be synonymous with His being.  (John 1:1)  This is quite an indictment which is defined as “a formal charge or accusation of a serious crime”.

The solution is to read the Word regularly.  Agree with the Word.  Allow the Word to dwell richly in your heart. Be doers and not hearers only but by agreeing with the Word to the extent you will act upon it.
