Why Do You Reject Christ?

Jenners_Tombstone

“If you are without Christ, you do not reject Christ because of any fatalistic fear of God’s decree. That is not what keeps you from Christ. You do not reject Christ because of the hypocrites you claim to see in the church. You may say that is why you reject Him, but you know it is a deception. Nor do you reject Christ because of any intellectual doubts you may have. You reject Jesus Christ because of your sin, because you are disobedient, because you love your wickedness, and because your heart is bound to your idols. That is why you reject Jesus Christ, your love of sin. The Lord Jesus said, “Men love darkness rather than light.” Why? Because they have intellectual difficulties with the light? Because they see hypocrites professing to walk in the light? Because they have some fatalistic notions of God’s predestination? No, sir! Strip the cloak of hypocrisy away from you today, and listen to what Jesus said. “Men love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil”–and for that reason only. It is sin that keeps you from Christ.”

“I would rather be open to the charge of worshipping the Bible than to be an apostate who rejects the Word of God and then seeks to deceive himself that he does not reject the God of the Word.”
