The latest talking point is all about the repealing of section 377A. Churches are spending their time talking and talking and talking. They talk as if the end of the world is at hand because of the repeal of this section. All kinds of seminars and forums have been initiated and promoted. The amount of attention given to it is great. News and articles come into my inbox fast and furious.
Well, to me, it is a waste of my time. I delete them as they come in. I do not promote them. I knew this is coming since the longest time. The bible already tells us about what is going to happen in the last days. This is inevitable. The question to ask is not what we are to do about it. We are to ask ourselves what should have been done right from the early days. All our talks today will not stop it from happening. The last days, end times, will come whether you like it or not. The good news is that the Lord is also coming soon.
We should be spending our time bringing the good news to everybody. We must save as many as we can when it is still day. There is nothing we can do when night comes. The time and energy spent to talk about 377A would be better spent on telling others about God, His love and His salvation. Why get into a discussion that will not yield any viable outcome? Spend the time bringing people into the kingdom. Believe me, the people will appreciate you more.
Another thing of equal importance is to spend time and effort to teach our people the word well. Strengthen their faith and they will live a life worthy of the gospel. Then you need not worry about the any section of the law being repealed. When Christians only know God superficially, they live a superficial spiritual life. It will be easy for wrong morality to creep in. When the US banned the bible and public prayers in schools in 1962, their schools started to become hotbeds for violence and moralistic decadence.
Brothers and sisters, major on the major and not the minor. Preach the Word, live the life of God.
In Christ’s service,
