The Last Generation

Our Nation is in trouble! Morally, Religiously, Economically and, Politically—we are in trouble. When the Constitution, the document upon which the Republic was built, is called a “Living Document”, i.e., it must be change with the culture and be politically correct, and is no longer interpreted but ignored by some in high places, we are in trouble!

When the morality of the Nation is at an all-time low and, national debt is at an all-time high, we are in trouble. When “congress shall establish no religion” is interpreted to mean that God is removed from the fiber of our nation, we are in trouble. Will this be the last generation of Americans who were a part of the greatest nation on earth?

 “Righteousness exalteth a nation; But sin is a reproach to any people”— (Proverbs 14:34).

The church is also encountering difficulties in many places, here and abroad. From the outside the church ever faces the temptation to be overly influenced by the culture. This is called the “Emergent/ Emerging Church” movement.

“The emerging / emergent church movement falls into line with basic post-modernist thinking—
 
 Becoming like the world silences the voice of conviction that should characterize the church. The church is in the world and does its work in the world, but must be carefully separated from the world. We are not to conform to this world but are to have a transforming influence in the world.

“And be not fashioned according to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, and ye may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. (Romans 12:2)

From the inside we face the “Change Agent” a movement which seeks to remake the church into a denomination. “Change Agents” have affected countless congregations as well as administrators and teachers on the campuses of Christian colleges and, universities. If this movement has its way, we wonder if this is the last generation to “Stand Strong” upon Biblical truth, and to call for the restoration of New Testament Christianity.

This is certain: the church will be here when Jesus comes! “Not even the power of death can defeat it”—(Matthew 16:18).

However, local churches and individual members must make a choice. Where are the churches at Corinth, Thessalonica, Philippi, Colosse, and what happened to the seven churches of Asia? We may continue to exist, but will we exist as a church that seeks to be the church of the New Testament?

In our families, the most important influence in the lives of children is their parents. If today’s young people are as strong, or weak, spiritually, in the coming years as their parents are today, we wonder if this is the last generation that will seek to be the church of the New Testament. We look to the future optimistically but, realistically and wonder what the future holds for us. It is worth pondering! Could this be the last generation to hold to the real, the true, and the lasting in matters affecting us Nationally, Religiously, and Domestically?
