Great Sermon! Just because it is one's opinion that 'the end is near' (remember 'no man knows the hour') is no excuse to stop standing up for what is true and right according to God's Word. It is no excuse for sending your children off to be educated solely by a humanistic, government run education system, no excuse not to speak out against the evils of our society. It is this attitude of defeatism and looking 'for escape' among Christians that has led to the deplorable state of this country today. Of course we all 'look to Christ and His return' as the blessed hope. But it is madness to assume that the return is 'around the corner' and so do nothing in the meanwhile to better the world we live in today. I would much rather build the church and the culture of the nation with an eye for future generations and then be pleasantly interrupted by Christ's return, than I would to assume that I'm going to be 'out of here' the day after tomorrow and so let the country and the world 'go to hell in a handbasket' without saying or doing anything and then find out He actually doesn't come in my lifetime. Where are you then? Lying in the bed you made for yourself and your children.
