If you want sympathy, I have none for you. You should have known.
If you want commiseration for the consequences that come from your errors, I have none. You should have known.
If you want justification, I will not give you any. You should have known.
If you want an escape for this doomed zepplin, I have none. You should have known.
God calls us to act on principle, not on feeling, not on peer pressure, not on anything but the choices we have before us. Spin, wheedle, cry, complain, and self-justify — these are the voices of deception and the arias of worldly sorrow. Come away, come away from your soap opera lives and learn how to stand upright and not to bend with every passing wind. If you cannot be faithful in a little, how can you be faithful in much? Nations were lost due to the apostasy of the people — that is something history records again and again. Yes, there is a price for betraying truth. Yes, there are consequences to electing evil leaders. If you will not learn from Israel, and you will not learn from recent history, and you will not learn from all the years of your own life, when at last will you learn?
May we never be a people browbeat by fear nor whipsawed by emotion. Those are for lesser men. Surely the people who are called of Christ can make decisions that flow from spiritual discernment? If not, what value are you to God? Party away and sing worship songs and live like you never knew Him is no path to holiness. The plug will be pulled soon on all these Molechian sideshows of sin.
