I have read that Daniel Webster frequently went out from Washington to hear a country preacher. When asked why, he replied, “Other ministers preach to Daniel Webster, the statesman, but this man preaches to Daniel Webster, the sinner.”
Christ or Antichrist
He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
After all is said and done, the real issue today, as always, is Christ or Antichrist. We try to move the focal point elsewhere, but here is where the battle rages. And if Christ is the issue, then for us the supreme matte is (1) to become a Christian; (2) to become a better Christian daily; (3) to help other Christians to be better Christians, and (4) to help those who are not Christians to become Christians. We gather with Him, or we scatter abroad.
This is our real “program,” faith in Christ, fellowship with Christ, faithfulness to Christ, fruitfulness for Christ. It simplifies life to one thing, just to be a Christian, a believer in Christ, a follower of Christ, a witness of Christ.
Anything less is not enough. Anything more is too much. “With me” – there is our position; “gathering” – there is our practice. “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men.” Following and fishing!
Are you Christian or Antichristian?
