SPIRALING INTO IRRELEVANCY

I hope you don’t think I am a Michael Savage groupie. It is just that, in my opinion, he is a voice of reason crying in the wilderness.
On both Monday and Tuesday nights this week he has used his platform on his nationally syndicated radio show to boldly proclaim that America’s only hope is a return to a society built on the “bedrock of the Bible.”
He has more boldness than ninety per-cent of the pastors standing in the pulpit. Most of the pastors are good for nothing, at least as far as the great commandment is concerned.
Those are not my thoughts that I am expressing. They are the words of Jesus speaking directly to his followers in the fifth chapter of Mathew’s Gospel.
“Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt has lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men…”
Americanized Christianity is being trampled under the foot of man with the dutiful acquiescence of the people-pleasing pastors who make peace with the principalities and powers that the Apostle Paul warned us we were to “wrestle” against.
The gospel of John Lennon “all you need is love” has removed the salty-sting from the Gospel, and replaced it with the sugary-sweet message guaranteed not to offend. The book of Jude exhorts all believers to “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints.”
