The title of this blog is taken from the famous Jonathan Edwards sermon.
That sermon dealt with the fact that the only thing keeping the ungodly
(unsaved) out of Hell is God. In other words, God keeps such people alive and
out of Hell to give them the opportunity to be saved. How long He gives them is
strictly according to His will not theirs!
Just as this truth shook millions of churchgoers who heard or read this
sermon the same should shake those of us who are believers. The same Bible that
teaches the truth about the unsaved also teaches that while the saved are
secure in the Lord they also are kept from a different judgment purely based on
His will and purpose.
Denying that Jesus is the Son of God requires blinders. It requires that you ignore His miracles, ignore the fulfilled prophecies, and ignore His own claims. People have been trying for centuries to disprove His claims, all to no avail. They try to find ‘errors’ in the Word but such claims are quickly and thoroughly destroyed.
In other words it is not just ignorance but willful ignorance.
In this first blog about the Persecuted Church I am taking a look at America, so-called Christian America. We now live in a country where believing in the fundamental truths of the Bible is ridiculed and punished.
