This is the main problem with modern progressive Christianity: It sounds good when it talks about love and acceptance, but because it is a lie, it leads people to Hell. It is the broad road that Jesus talks about in Matthew 7:13-14. Yet, Jesus warns us not to take that road, but instead, cling to the straight and narrow.
Following Jesus is not like eating at Burger King. You can’t have it “your way right away.” Instead, being a Christian means following Jesus. Following Jesus requires us to accept that every part of the Bible is still relevant today. It lays out the only path to Heaven. We are required to obey it’s teaching.
Jeremiah 6:16 says, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.’ But you said, ‘We will not walk in it.’” (NIV)
Today, we stand at this same crossroads. We have what the world needs. The question is, are you strong enough to shine bright against today’s culture? Will you accept that the Bible is still relevant today? Will you commit to living your life by Biblical principles? Will you be a light that speaks truth to a dark world?
Standing at the same crossroads as Jeremiah, will you choose to say, “This isn’t the road I want” or “I will wholeheartedly follow Jesus no matter what”?
The choice lies with each of us. Will we rise? Will we shine?
The question is, “Are you strong enough to shine bright against today’s culture and progressive Christianity?”
Memory Verse: “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” (Matthew 7:15, NIV)
