Admirer Or Follower?
By Steve Higginbotham
March 13, 2005
Why is it that millions of people
in our nation claim to be Bible believers, yet our nation has so
many vices. I would understand if the vices all were being
performed by unbelievers, but they are not. It is people of faith,
as well as the unbeliever who are guilty of crime, adultery,
divorce, lying, cheating, cursing, coveting, etc.
How do you explain that? I think I
know how. There are many people who are "admirers" of the truth.
These admirers of the truth flee when danger comes, succumb when
temptation crosses their path, and become traitors when pressed
Admiring the truth isn't the same
as following it. Don't confuse the two. Jesus never called for
admirers, however he did call for disciples. Which are you? Give
it some thought.
