Just shows how much the world hates the gospel! Even when we aren't "pushing" it on people.Sad that the teacher said he could talk about ANY topic and then went back on his word. You think the teacher will be more restrictive next time they do informative speeches? Probably.
Soon there will come a day when we can nolonger preach the Blood of the Lamb, thesacrifice of the cross, the judgment tocome and the wrath of GOD, and the fateof sinners.It will be considered "hate speech" anda crime !!Soon there will come a day when our allegiances and loyalties will be put tothe test. Are you ready to be despised, rejected, and persecuted because you honor,follow, and serve Christ ?? Soon is coming a Day when those who belongto the Body of Christ will need each other more than ever. We need to encourage, inspire,help one another to fight and stand becauseour LORD is coming soon !!
