Judging the Skeptics

Skeptics

We are all responsible for the choices we make, whether good or evil. Life is not a game, and we don’t get a redo or a second chance to choose differently once our choice has been made and lived out.

These, because they have been given so much, much will be expected of them (Luke 12:48). Most of the rest of us will be judged more lightly, but in the end everyone’s works and the choices he has made will be judged by God. It behooves us, therefore, to consider Jesus’ words.

The matter of the abomination of desolation did not reflect the act of a foreign king or ‘strong man’ but the condition of the people of God. The Jews wholeheartedly deserted their God and his way. It was a matter of their desiring to be more like those around them than obeying or honoring God. They were led away, not by a foreign despot, but by one of their own, a betrayer or son of perdition—the high priest. They placed their confidence in him, rather than remaining faithful to God.
