Have you noticed that the world is becoming a place of us vs. them? Have you given up watching the evening news because it is so distasteful or incredulous?
“Oh the clamour of these days! Everyone is clamouring -for what? For the Son of God to be put to death.” – My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers (1874 – 1917)
It’s far easier to get folks to agree about spirituality when it’s linked to “God” or some “Higher Power.” What happens the moment you narrow the discussion of Spirit to Jesus Christ?
What happens is you lose fellowship, friendliness, and political and social good will. You become the enemy of all but those who also seek relationship with Christ.
