IT. IS. A. FALLEN. WORLD.

There are a few things that many Christians do that irritates the snot out me. One of the top 5 five things is this.

When they say things like: “Oh my! The world has become such a horrible place!” News flash, it has been that way since the fall. Scripture tells us that. At times in history it has been worse than others. And it is becoming more prevalent now due to the Circus Church that is in town now. Gospel Light and ear tickling prevails.

“It has been far too little recognized that God has more than one design in sending forth the Gospel. First, it is for the glory of Christ—a worldwide proclamation of His excellencies. God intends that a universal testimony shall be borne to the person and work of the One who so superlatively honored Him. Second, the preaching of the Gospel is made a further test of corrupt nature, demonstrating that men love darkness rather than light. Third, God uses the Gospel as a remedial agency in curbing the wickedness of the world, for many are reformed by it who are never savingly transformed in this way, making this scene a safer place for His people to pass through. It is also the means by which He calls out His elect: the sieve in which the wheat is separated from the chaff.”  —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

BTW, number one thing that gets under my skin: “Christians” that are scared of death.
