Idolatry in America (and the World)!

After seeing some of the footage of the Micheal Jackson funeral, it made me stop and wonder, where could people ever get the idea that they can go to heaven without the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible? As Leonard Ravenhill once said, "Anything that you love more than The Lord Jesus Christ is an idol".

Now I know that Satan has blinded the eyes of those that are lost (2 Cor. 4:4), they can not help but blaspheme the Name of the true God, with their mixture of all religions. But where is the true church of the Living God? Where are those that are calling people to the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ? Where are the men and women that are proclaiming the Jesus of the Bible? Where are the one's proclaiming that Jesus is the ONLY way (John 14:6, Acts 412)? I know that there are a some out there that are doing this, but we must be in a great minority.

We are warned in scripture to make sure that we are not deceived by another, Spirit or another gospel or another Jesus! (2 Cor. 11:4) Take heed dear servant's of the Lord, Jesus commanded that we should go forth and make disciples, teaching all things that HE has commanded (Matt. 28:19-20) This is the call of every true believer, to go forth and preach the gospel, so that God, through His word, can save his elect. This is the only hope for those who are lost and dead in their sins!

Tim Challies has a very timely and encouraging post on this today. You can read it here.
