Fork in the road


The LORD’s curse is on the house of the wicked,
but he blesses the home of the righteous.
Proverbs 3:33

There are certain things that are difficult to understand for those who have been raised under the philosophy of postmodernism and unfortunately much of humanity belongs to this category. For example, for them it is tremendously difficult to understand that with God there is no middle ground. For them, the clear division between good and evil ─ without falling into the erroneous dualism ─ presented throughout the stories and teachings of the Word of God is simply incomprehensible. The prevailing relativity of our times considers that the biblical view is an outdated way of understanding life and therefore, they are constantly seeking ways to dilute the impact that these teachings have on the conscience of those who listen, either by directly attacking them or by simply ignoring them like the proverbial ostrich. Before God we have only two options. Either will we follow him or not. Either we obey him or not. Either we pay attention to him or ignore him. Either we repent or remain the beasts that we have been all of our lives. Either we surrender at his feet or reject his offer of reconciliation. Either we accept his incomparable love or refuse the greatest opportunity we will ever have.

The consequences of our actions are clearly defined before us so no excuse will be acceptable to elude the responsibility for our decisions. Faced with two possible outcomes one can only assume either one of two positions: to obey or disobey. Unfortunately, the human race has lost touch with reality and has submerged itself in an accommodating world in which all try to be as light as possible to make room for the uneven amalgam of worldviews that are needed to replace and satisfy the need of having personal contact with our creator. Instead of listening and following God, man has been driven by his carnal impulses and this decision can only bring catastrophic consequences upon him. Let us act, then, with wisdom at the fork in the road of our destiny. Let us follow the loving voice of the Good Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ and choose the right path, the path of life and salvation. To God alone be the glory!
