Did You Meme That? # 3 - Casual Faith
"I believe the time is coming when we will not be able to take our Christianity as casually as we do now." A. W. Tozer
The time to stop taking our faith (Christianity) casually is now. It was time when Tozer said this. There are American Christians who keep talking about the coming persecution and the imagined present persecution here (so puny as it is), but they sit and smile and give their approval as the devil literally devours them and their churches with Emergent, post-modern, New Age, Roman Catholic, mystical, Pharisaical, and/or humanistic teaching.
The time is not coming.
The time to "earnestly contend for the faith...once delivered" is now! It has been since Jude wrote those words.
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Jude 1:3-4 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
