We are looking at one of the foundational truths of our salvation. True Christians are those who have received God's Word.
But so few have received God's Word, right? Have you been reading the news this week? Another school shooting in California, more terrorist bombs in Russia, and the daily rates of evil in America with 54 individuals murdered every day in America and 16,939 assaulted. That makes 19,810 who are killed and another 6.1 million that are injured in fights and attacks HERE in the USA. So we live in a land overflowing with violence, greed, and suffering.
So what do crime statistics have to do with the Gospel? And what does God expect from us who live in these last days? God wants everyone to receive His Word and be changed from their sinful ways.
