Familiarity Breeds Contempt, but Ignorance Propagates Faster Than Rabbits

The Voice of Elijah®, July 1995

Excerpt From Newsletter

I dare say the majority of “evangelical Christian” leaders today would disagree with what Jonathan Edwards has written concerning scaring folks into Heaven, or as he prefers to put it, “to fright persons away from hell.” That’s because over the past century evangelical Christians have opted to put their confidence in the “unconditional love of God” goofiness that was concocted by liberal theologians toward the end of last century. They don’t realize that earlier generations of evangelical, “born-again” Christians rejected that insidious doctrine.

Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t claim to be an “expert” on the subject of the new birth, as I have no doubt John Wesley, Jonathan Edwards, and Charles Finney were. However, I am rapidly becoming a lot more knowledgeable about Pretenders who think they have been born again. That being the case, this one thing I can tell you for a fact: There are millions of “Christians” around the world who have latched on to the lie that tells them everything is all right between themselves and God when they have never once sincerely apologized for the sins they have committed. The reason they have never done so is simple: They don’t know that God is going to destroy them if they don’t set things straight. Do you know why they don’t know that God has already planned their destruction? Because they have never been told.

Now I ask you: Who do you think deserves the greater judgment, the fools who don’t believe that God is a God of wrath or the idiots who told them God is not a God of wrath? You can answer that any way you like and it won’t change the simple fact that the wrath of God is bearing down hard on a generation of “Christian” Pretenders who have taken a firm stand on the unfounded conviction that God loves them unconditionally merely because they have chosen to believe that God loves them unconditionally.
