TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

SENSATIONALISTS  [2]

          Like those around the cross, people today are trying to find God in the spectacular and dramatic.  To them, the test of a sermon is not “Is it true?”, but “Does it sweep me across the whole keyboard of human emotion, leaving me perched on a mountain-type high?”  The test of a revelation is not “Did it come from the Book?” – for that is so undramatic – but “Did it come by a vision or dream?”  Similarly, the test of one’s spirituality is judged not by his devotion to God and service to man, but by his amazing ability to feel overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit speaking in an ecstatic tongue.   [more next week]
