Examin Saturday 3 May 2014

Many today want to have their cake and eat it too; they want the eternal life that Christ promises, but they want the 'good' things our modern era offers in such abundance as well. So they 'fudge;' they say the Gospel message has to be 'up to date' and 'relevant' to the age we live in. They forget that the message of Christ was counter-cultural to the age he lived in; and that there is no such thing as the truth being relevant in one time and not in another. We can not 'water down' the Gospel to make it more palatable to the modern ear. What we must do instead is learn humility and submit to the teaching of our Lord, however hard that may be, and whatever the cost.
