So many spiritual theories, some even claiming to represent Christianity, swirl around us, all vying for our attention. And all, either openly or subtly, elevating humanity over Christ. Those who stand firmly on Scripture, convinced that it alone is God’s medium of communication with man, risk everything from occasional ridicule to outright persecution…sometimes even from those who profess to be believers.
As American culture grows increasingly intolerant of Biblical Christianity, we must cling to the Lord with even greater tenacity. He must be our only focus. All man-centered philosophies will shift beneath our feet, compromising our balance so that we fall. Therefore, like the writer of today’s hymn, I recognize that my only security comes from Christ.
