There are only two sides — God’s and Satan’s.
- God only takes those who make Him #1.
- Fence sitters – de facto and de jure – belong to Satan.
Dr. Alan Snyder (Professor of History in the Department of Historical, Legal, and Leadership Studies at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida) posted this on his blog:
“I understand why people can become cynical and think nothing they do can make a difference. The only problem with that thinking, though, as a Christian, is that it is a faithless position to take.
“If you want to guarantee that things get worse, stay on the sidelines and do nothing. But the Gospel I believe in, and the God of that Gospel, tells us to make disciples of all nations. He also tells us to be light and salt in a society. If we give in to a kind of fatalism for our future, we act against the very commands we have been given.
“God doesn’t promise that we will win every battle, but He does want to see warriors on the field, doing their best as they take their orders from Him. The question in our minds ought to be the one asked by Jesus Himself when He queried, ‘When the Son of Man comes [back], will He find faith on the earth’?
“I want to be found faithful. How about you?”
