The Heart of Fallen Man

This lovely little picture to your left is not Photoshopped. It was taken outside last week's Democratic National Convention in North Carolina. A small little dose of what that event had to offer, but the news media didn't show you too much of it. Nice of them to censor the truth, wasn't it?

As much as this grieves me, I am not surprised. Some words from Jesus to us—His followers—will explain why I am not surprised at this ugly display . . .

If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you. Remember the word I said to you, 'A slave is not greater than his master.' If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My Word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. If I had not come and spoken to them, they would not have sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. He who hates Me hates my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well. But they have done this to fulfill the word that is written in their Law, 'They hated Me without a cause.' (John 15:18-25).

Folks, I've said it before and I'll say it again. Things are going to get very, very ugly before the return of the Lord. And when the Son comes, will He find faith on the earth?
