Pick up a copy of, Carnegie's "How to Win Friends and Influence People," and I highly doubt you will find his advice directing you to a consuming passion for Spiritual oneness with Christ. No, things don't really change all that much. Perhaps one generation may seem less tolerant than another to those of us coming out of the previous generation, whose mores and standards we were closer to accepting, but those same lifestyles would have been a generation removed from the Christians before us. After all, they were persecuted for NOT living the way we live today. Our children will be persecuted for living the way we live today. For, as it is generally agreed, it is not progress we often defy, but decay in the limits of acceptable lifestyle. At any point on the continuum, the person who resists fitting in with the mainstream is seen politically as "incorrect." The question is, does that matter?
"We are too busy to pray, and so we are too busy to have power. We have a
great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few
conversions; much machinery but few results." ~R.A. Torrey
I wouldn't want to be such a person who merely speaks of truth, without speaking truth, so the greatest truth I see in God's word is that God is Love. Next after that would be that we are commanded to love God with all our heart and soul, and our neighbor as our self. Anything short of that is Spiritually Untrue.Open your Bible, and look for Spiritual truth.
John 14:6 Jesus said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes unto the Father, but by me.
