In response to Pastor Brian Onstead’s article on how narratives shape us, I’ve got another narrative for him. Based on the word of God, this narrative goes something like this: The reason why the divorce rate is the same inside the church as outside the church is because there is just as much fornication going on inside the church as outside the church, and the reason for that is that the church has abandoned God’s law. This also is the reason why women rule most families.
The greatest victory the feminists attained was to convince women that unless they were career-oriented, rather than family-focused, that they were second-rate, and slaves to their husbands. As a result, women, whether inside the church or outside the church, would rather pay someone else to raise their kids, and send their kids to government schools so they can be taught that they don’t have to keep their same sex, and they all came from monkeys anyway, so the best you can hope for is that you can be good global citizens and slaves to the state.
What am I saying? I’m saying the gospel is not fire insurance. It is not a benefit plan for the purpose of befitting you, which is how it is presented in the churches. Life, and the gospel, is not about you; it is about God.
God, by his grace, has provided the way to salvation by providing his son Jesus Christ as a sacrifice for our sins. Once a person realizes that he owes Christ all he has because of what he has done for him, instead of living for himself, he will live to please the God of his salvation. He does this, by seeking first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, by obeying the great commission, by advancing the kingdom of God and by obeying his commandments, by living for him, and not for ourselves.
In other words, we have a choice: Either we as Christians repent, and start obeying the law of God in every area of our lives, or the state is going to become more and more powerful. If the church loved its law half as much as marxists, humanists and Muslims loved theirs, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
It is time for us to repent and start being the salt and light we are supposed to be, instead of waiting on the rapture or the final judgment day for God to fix it. If we don’t judge ourselves, then God is going to judge us, in this life. How’s that for a narrative?
