I honestly don’t understand. If you claim to know Jesus and are representing Him on a major level in the world today, why you would stand against the things His WORD stands against. WHY?

I’ve been watching with some amazement and sorrow the tumbling down of Jen Hatmaker.  I never really sat and listened to a lot of her stuff, but my wife liked her. And when I saw on social media the other day where she was approving of sin and not just approving, but was willing to help others indulge in sin, I got really concerned.

This is a problem.  A BIG problem.

2 Timothy 4:3 says: “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.”

There is always a pull for public speakers and preachers to ‘go softer’ in tone and go softer in hopes of ‘pulling more people in.’ This is such a bait and switch of the devil.

You see, there is a war that is being waged right now, and the side you take will determine your future.  The devil is always looking for ways to steal, kill and destroy us (John 10:10). And this is one way he does it. Make us believe the lie that God’s Word really did not mean what it says.

You see, if he can distract you from the truth for just long enough then he’s got you. We need to make the best use of our time because the days are truly twisted and evil.

Follow pastors and speakers who hold the Scripture in the highest regard. Listen to preachers who proclaim the whole council of God, even the stuff that makes you uncomfortable. When we allow sin to rule and rest in our lives we start to get comfy. That’s dangerous.

I honestly am not rejoicing in what Jen is doing. It breaks my heart that now I have to add another author/speaker to a list of ‘do not touch.’

My prayer is a prayer for repentance. That’s what we need.

Be willing to call sin, sin, and don’t dance around it.  Even if it’s sin you’re engaged in. Call it for what it is and repent and move TO God rather than away.

It’s a much safer and pleasant place!
