Middle of the Road

Posted By on April 13, 2011

Dennis Rainey from Family Life has posted a short, thought-provoking (and sobering) piece:

There is no reason why so many Christian marriages should end in divorce. There is no reason why people who call themselves evangelicals should account for one in every six abortions performed in America. There is no reason why more than half of our Christian teens are engaging in some form of sexual involvement to the detriment of their own hearts and futures.

We’ve spent enough time in the middle of the road. It’s time to get in gear in the right direction and head for home.

    I really love the discussion question. That was the tough question that my husband and I had to ask within the last year or so…major changes have been taking place ever since then. Living for the Lord is not for the lazy…there is ALWAYS something new to learn or to incorporate into lifestyle.

    Long ago, our pastor gave a sermon asking, “If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?” This question helped guide me through many critical decisions during my teen years, and still does today.

    The term “middle-of-the-road” brings to mind Rev. 3:16: “So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth.”

    I know this is very off-subject, but I wanted to commend Mrs. Chancey for the way she responded to these antagonist comments at this post – http://www.ladiesagainstfeminism.com/theme-articles/theyre-spoiling-eves-great-con-game-by-taylor-caldwell/ – you have posted on LAF last year. I was very much encouraged by your calm and sweet comments to these ladies who, in my opinion, were attacking women who aren’t feminist.

    I know this was so long ago, but I have just stumbled across that article, and I was very encouraged. 🙂

    @joysofboys – I’ve heard that quote before. I was just remembered it by reading your post. I love it, and I think it’s a question every young Christian woman (well, Christians in general!) should ask herself in tough situations, along with “WWJD?”

    Love in Christ,
