Humanism used to be a troubling philosophy. Now humanism is assumed.
Modern Christianity has little to do with Christ, and much to do with humanism.
We’ve bought the line that we are special people with world-changing purpose.
Living a life of quiet obedience to Christ is out.
Making Christ your self-help guru so you can accomplish more, more, more is in.
The only valuable Christian is the one who has a ministry named after him or her.
The only Christian life worth living is one where you and Jesus save the world.
It’s not enough to be still and know God, now we must be busy doing goals with Jesus.
Being quiet and working with your hands is out, being loud, obnoxious and in your face with my goods I want you to buy is in.
Don’t let humans dictate your view of God or yourself. Humans are wrong.
God is right. Concern yourself with His wisdom.
“Remember how short my time is:
wherefore hast thou made all men in vain?“
Life is short. You really don’t matter. God says your life is vain. Relax in that.
Do you love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength? Cuz if you did, you wouldn’t have energy for anything else.
“Whom have I in heaven but You?
And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.“
You don’t have to change the world.
God does not judge you on your supposed “impact” on the world.
Your life does not have to “go viral” to pass God’s judgment.
God judges your heart and what flows out of it.
“And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God,
and into the patient waiting for Christ.”
