Would you rather feel good or be well?

A lot of folks are made to feel good while in actuality they are dying. They are suffering from the horrors of the undiagnosed disease of sin. They are exemplifying all of the symptoms of sin i.e. unforgiveness, malice, fornication, adultery, lying, stealing, disobedience to God’s Eternal Commandments, idolatry, homosexuality, false doctrines, witchcraft, licentiousness, lewdness, pornography, vulgar speech, vulgar appearance, vulgar thinking, drunkenness, sexual perversions and uncleanness, BUT NO ONE WANTS TO TELL THEM ABOUT THEIR DREADFUL DISEASE OF SIN.

Most folks are satisfied with being made to feel good about themselves. (2 Timothy 4:3) They want to be encouraged in their sinful state. They want to be excused from any genuine change and told that they can be successful Christian through the process of self-improvement, learning to live right and understanding God’s Word by continual studying and church attendance. Some are convinced that they can be saved simply by believing in the Lord whereas the demons also believe and tremble. Are demons saved by faith also? If the demons are not saved then neither are those who simply receive Christ with a gesture of faith or some man-made sinner’s prayer.

I’d rather hear the truth about my sinful condition that threatens my eternal soul rather than be deceived into believing that I am alright then die and go to hell. I had rather be thoroughly examined, properly diagnosed and prescribed God’s eternal commandments for salvation (Repentance, Water Baptism in His Name and the Empowerment of the Holy Spirit – John 3:3-7 and Acts 2:38) and take my medicine now than walk around thinking I am saved only to hear the Lord tell me on that day “…I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!” (Matthew 7:21-23)

As for the would be deceiver of my soul, there is a dreadful day ahead for him. (Ref. Ezekiel 33:1-9)


How about you?

    • I am extremely honored and emotionally moved by the invitation. My self-confidence wanes in the light of so great an honor and in the presence of so awesome a personality as Dr. Graves. I am presently overwhelmed. Please allow me to call you a little later in the day. I am presently on my way to a Homegoing service.

      Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
