We can understand

Look at the condition of our country and if you will be honest you can lay the cause of all this misery squarely at the feet of liberals. However, you can not escape the thunderous silence of those who have allowed these things to happen.  It is like someone left the gate to the asylum open. Now look at the church and you can see the exact same thing.

Just like it is not hard for all to understand the Constitution it is not hard for all to understand the Bible. It is not the case that these can't be understood it is the fact that some want to redefine both. They want to make changes to the original intent of both to justify error and to enslave all to their ungodly way of thinking.

This may sound harsh to you but it is true. It is easier to swallow the camel of liberalism because no one is held accountable and their teaching is all sugar coated meant to please the itching ears of the listener. All the while to many sit by silently and allow the destruction of those things we hold dear. It all comes down to understanding Gods will. We are told that He has given us all things that pertain to life and Godliness. 2Pe_1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

The Bible emphatically and plainly teaches that we can understand It. Read carefully the following scriptures.

"If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from myself" ( Jno. 7:17).

"Jesus therefore said to those Jews that had believed on him, If ye abide in my word, then are ye truly disciples; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" (Jno. 8:31, 32).

"How that by revelation be made known unto me the mystery (Note: the "mystery" was something previously not revealed, but has now been "made known" – CW ) ; as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ" (Eph. 3:3, 4 from King James Version).

"Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, was this grace given, to preach unto the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the dispensation of the mystery which for ages hath been hid in God" (Eph. 3:8, 9).

"And that from a babe thou hast known the sacred writings which are able to make thee wise unto salvation" (2 Tim. 3:15).

If one cannot understand the Bible, then Bible study is nothing more than a pious waste of time. If the Bible cannot be understood by all, it must be because God willingly did not have it written so that we can understand it. The Bible teaches that God is an Almighty God ( Rev. 4:8). Would God intentionally give us an ambiguous and incomprehensible Revelation, and then purpose to send us to hell for not doing what it says?

If there is a lack of understanding it is because there is a lack of study on our part. It can also be because of a lack of caring also. The attitude of many today is tell me want I want to hear, tell me the smooth things that will not offend anyone. I thank God everyday for those who love and care for my soul enough to correct me and keep me on the straight path.

Think about it folks just as the country is being destroyed from within so is the church. You have to be blind not to see it. I want someone to show me where the bible teaches anything about a silent majority. What did Peter and John do after the council beat them and commanded them not to preach in Jesus name? Did they not go right back out preaching the same doctrine? Did they cower in a corner and remain silent?

We can understand the Bible! We can understand the Constitution! We can stand on both. The question is will we?
