Only 40,000 will go

One of the things that has always haunted me since my early days in Sunday school was when I heard that only 40,000 people will be taken up before the shit really hits the fan.

Who would have believed what the world has come to? Back in the 60s and 70s we never could have fathomed people doing the things they do now.

Now crime is an every day thing – gangs, shootings, muggings… If you live near Chicago or Milwaukee, the shooting have gotten insane. People are being shot driving down the highway.

It seems everyone wants to be gay. Not really. Those of us who still feel it is wrong are not allowed to speak about it.

You’re not allowed to call anyone fat anymore either. We’re supposed to just sit by and let people kill themselves by diet because God forbid, we might offend them.

Christians are being tortured and killed for their faith, just like the Bible said would happen.

Our elections are a joke.

Its not pretty, and this is only the tip of the iceberg.

I don’t want to be here. It would be cool to see Jesus when he comes, but I don’t want to have to go through all the shit leading up to it.

Problem is…I’m not good enough to make that first cut out of here. Are you?

Are you doing all the things you’re supposed to do?

I don’t understand why I have such a hard time with tithing. No, that’s a lie. I hang on because I don’t have much and I don’t have enough faith that God will provide. Which makes no sense since when I was tithing, life was good.

I am a lukewarm Christian. And the Bible says God will spew me out of his mouth.

I have enough faith to be certain that everything the Bible says will come to pass. I have enough faith to be afraid. But I don’t feel the love. I’ve struggled with that all my life. And if I don’t feel God’s love, I am doomed.

Jesus said that his yoke is easy. Why do I struggle with it so?
