From the Pastor's Desk

It is hard to comprehend how people can believe some of the things that they do these days. But scripture tells us that in the last days people would suffer from unrighteous deception, have no love of the truth, and believe a strong delusion (2 Thess. 2:10-11). People do not fall into that suddenly and knowingly. It happens slowly and unknowingly. Last-days deception is about luring people into a certain mindset and ideals that are devoid of truth while they don't realize it's happening.

One pastor tells this story: "I once watched the television interview with a very famous individual who is well known for his public opposition of biblical teaching. During the conversation, the interviewer asked this famously rich person for his opinion about the state of the world today. I was shocked to hear how he answered! The man replied that the world in general had never been in better shape than it is right now. As evidence to support his claim, he specifically mentioned the shift of morality away from traditional values, the widespread acceptance of same-sex marriage, and the emergence on the political and economic scene of a one-world system that he believed will turn the planet into an altogether better place. I was stunned at his answers. I wondered, how can anyone be so blind to what is taking place in the world today?"

In many cases, how can people be so apparently smart, yet so blind to the truth? 2 Cor. 4:4 says, "The god of this world has blinded the minds of those who believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ should shine unto them." The Greek here for "blinded," literally means that they have had their eyes gouged out.

It has never been more important for us to be entrenched in the Word and empowered by the Spirit!
