All jokes aside: I cringe as I think of how the world continues to shake its collective fist in the face of God.
We may think we know better or, in the case of an adverse number of atheists et al., may even think we really are better* than God. Yet just as you can’t ignore natural laws and get away unharmed, so, too, can we not ignore the moral law within our consciences and expect to avoid the consequences.
As any student of the Bible should understand, judgment is coming to this world. It’s just a question of time. And before accusations of “fear mongering” start, let me say: Only those who do and think evil continuously and refuse to acknowledge the existence of sin need to fear.
Thank God, when we get sick and tired of ourselves and our foolish ways, we can repent. The word “repent” in the New Testament entails the idea of a change of mind, one that involves a change of mind toward God, Jesus, and fellow human beings. Anytime. Anywhere.
*Note: This, of course, is ignoring the fact that words like “better” are essentially meaningless under an atheistic/materialistic system of morality which lacks any absolute foundation apart from the mind of the individual (meaning it can’t be applied outside the body and brain that contain it).
