i’ve personally been thoroughly disillusioned with people and the money grubbing organizations that call themselves ‘christian’, and i most certainly empathize with all the other folks out there who feel the same way.

it’s true that you’ve never really been stabbed in the back until you’ve been stabbed in the back by someone who calls you ‘brother in Christ’.

i’ve seen my share of people who put on a great show.  they have a big smile, hold open doors, and seem to go out of their way to be nice to folks — at least until they get home where they drink, yell, cuss, and beat their wife and children or even kick their wife in the stomach to murder their yet to be born children.

Ghandi reportedly had said something to the effect “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

half of ‘christian’ marriages fail, 9 out of 10 self-identifying ‘christians’ don’t even know how to explain salvation, seems every time you turn around some ‘christian’ leader is sleeping around or embezzling money from their ‘ministry’.

the enemy’s greatest assets are the tares among the wheat.  they take the name of the Lord in vain, and drag His name through the mud by misrepresenting Him.

broad is the road to hell, and there are many that travel it.  narrow is the road to salvation and there are few that find it…

this means that the majority of people you meet are on the broad road to hell…

throughout history true followers of Christ have been the always been the minority.

these few have always been persecuted by the unbelieving Jews, the Romans, the Catholics, the Muslims, the Reformers (‘reformed’ Catholics), Communists, Nazis, and today we see a ‘soft’ persecution gaining momentum by our own government, and the ‘New Agers’/neo-pagans/false christians

if anyone said that being a Christian was easy, guaranteed that person was not a Christian.

Jesus never said we would have it easy, matter of fact, He flat out stated we would have it hard — guaranteed.
if they persecuted Him, how can we think ourselves greater than Him in expecting to escape?
you do well if you are disillusioned by the shenanigans of the tares. 
it means there is hope for you
what we need exists only in Jesus Himself as recorded in scripture and revealed by His Holy Spirit and not in any thing or any people here on earth.
