On My Heart
As the 35th anniversary of my freedom approaches, I am pondering all God has done and yet bewildered by what I see happening to our culture

As I watch the culture decaying before my eyes, I ask the Lord for wisdom and clarity in the chaos. What I am coming away with is two distinct and parallel callings upon my life - two declarations:

1) The enemy has done a number on our culture concerning our very human identity. If we look at and operate from the Creator's design for us, we easily and logically see that when one is born a male, he is a man and should pursue the masculine identity. It follows that when one is born a female, she is a woman and should pursue the feminine identity. Wrong feelings simply declare that a lie is being believed somewhere in the thought process. Our enemy is THE Liar and his only power is deception. Oversimplification? I don’t believe so! Jesus has been setting people free from stinkin' thinkin' regarding sexuality for thousands of years now! Just read this:

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NASB

2) The church has fallen into the deception and, in so doing, has watered down the Gospel. Oversimplification? I do not believe so! When is the last time you heard a sermon calling people to repentance from their sin? When is the last sermon you heard declaring the power of the blood? When is the last sermon you heard calling people to the cross of Christ? We have become so concerned about how people feel that we have often completely abandoned the Truth! This generation is headed for traffic. Who will step between them and the oncoming destruction?

My prayer is that my life would communicate the Truth without compromise yet communicate the hard facts of Truth with great compassion and love for those I see headed for sure destruction.
Dennis Jernigan
