What will the verdict be?

On the news, everyone seems to wonder why so many westerners are joining ISIS or other Islamic terrorists.

I did, too, until I read a book by Billy Graham. My thoughts now are that people are sick and tired of how the West is continuing to decline morally. Crime goes up, lust is ramped with sex being only a temporary answer.

We have homosexuality, hedonistic marriages, injustice and the decline of morality in Washington and other cities.

The Koran, carefully manipulated around the truth, is promising people a solution to our problems. Their truths are false and their evil spreads. What have we done with our children? What has been the witness of ourselves and our churches? Some churches and pastors have hidden the truths of the Bible behind veiled threats of the IRS and others. Yet no case has been won by the IRS or the government, much due to our constitutional rights. Yet the pulpit remains quiet in many churches.

Jesus commands us to go into all the world and spread the truth of his kingdom, which is coming soon. We read that in the last days all these things will come about and then those who deny Jesus Christ will be judged by him.

What will his verdict be?
