"The last War came upon this country suddenly and unexpectedly because people would not face the facts, because we were nearly all believers in, and supporters of appeasement, surrendering this and that, saying that war could not happen again, and that two World Wars do not occur within a quarter of a century!

This country kept on refusing to face the plain facts of the international situation. Men wanted to be happy and to enjoy themselves, and dismissed the man who kept on warning us as a ‘warmonger’, a ‘difficult person’ with whom nobody could work, an ‘individualist’.

Precisely the same, it seems to me, is happening in the realm of the spiritual today. People say, ‘Do not be negative; let us be positive; let us just preach the simple gospel’. But the Bible is full of negatives, full of warnings, ever showing us these terrible possibilities. If you find in yourself a dislike of the warnings of the Scripture and of this negative teaching, it is obvious that you have been duped by the wiles of the devil. You have not realized the situation in which you are placed."

--Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Hi Kenny, I just read a blog by Carla at Old Pillars, http://oldpillars.blogspot.com/ titled, "The Thinky Feely Nicky Gospel," then went to your blog and read this.
It's so true, we want to hear only what makes us feel good. The Truth is not always easy. In fact it is often very difficult but it is the only thing that leads to life and salvation. (Luke 9:23-27) -CT
