WORLD Magazine has a post about teaching the “entitlement generation.” They do poor work but feel they are entitled to an A anyway. When they don’t get their A’s, they quit.
Feeling you are entitled to good for doing bad is nothing new, but it does explain much of human behavior.
Instead of dealing with the Gospel, people leave. They just up and quit. And there are plenty of other churches who will sweep them up to hear pleasant words that soothe the soul of the sinner.
Judgment day is coming, it’s unavoidable, one might say all men are entitled to judgment. God won’t care that you want to feel good for being bad. He’s not interested. God is not mocked, you reap what you sow.
