The Great Divide
Since I have been around since the 1950's , I have seen a lot of changes. Our world is changing fast. Esp compared to all the time since Christ, these days are seeing much faster change. Just in the last 50 years we have all this new technologies and they change overnight. The TV, The cell phone, The computers, space travel to name a few.
With this fast change, I have personally noticed a huge division coming. Though there has been division always and Christ said he came and this would happen it is getting FAR WORSE FAST! Families are dividing. I grew up were our family unit was kept together and stood together. Not these days, for I see many relatives that are at war with each other. Hating even. Will not talk to one another for years . Government of course. The one we have now can not work out even simple tasks. What was it like in congress right before the war between north and south? The writing is on the wall! Also, communities are not working together thus nothing gets accomplished. Any group, government or family that is not working together toward a common goal will fail.
Religious groups are not united. Divided over doctrine, rules and regulations. Or divided over what type of songs are sung, or who the pastor is. They are divided over what they eat or drink or other petty differences. Christians are not united in faith.
Which brings me to the greatest divide, and that is only two groups. True Believers and Non Believers. Belief in the one true God. God the father and Jesus Christ the Son. Many believers have sat on the fence their entire life time. They do not want to offend those who do not believe, and try to live a life to not ruffle any feathers. They want to live with the world and still keep a foot in the church door not realizing that God will expect a decision soon.
