Why Won't I Go?

Thursday, 20 September 2012 · Christian Life
“It is not possible. I must go... I need to see what is going on there. Should I only be on campus without knowing what is going on? I will definitely go.”

Some Christians on campus today do not know who they are, that they are the salt of the Earth. Unfortunately, they have lost their savor and they are henceforth good for nothing than to be cast out and are trodden under foot of men. Matt.5:13.

Campus Christians constitute the majority of people seen at social gatherings that does not glorify God, where immorality has become the norms. Really, there is nothing bad in associating with people. Paul knew this, that was why he stated in 1Cor. 15:33 that ye (Christians) should not be deceived as evil communication corrupt good manner. This simply mean the type of friends one keeps or a gathering one belongs to, will determine one’s action; and when Christians are found in gatherings that are not of God, how can they claim to be for God, when everything they’ll be doing there is totally against God.

The most amazing thing is when Christians are asked what prompts them to go there; they would answer “WHY WON’T I GO?”  Some will even say that they cannot be on campus without been social, forgetting the sayings of the Bible in Phil. 2:15 that ye (Christians) may be blameless, without rebuke, in the midst of crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as light in the world. The question is, ‘are campus Christians blameless in the midst of this crooked and perverse nation?’

My mouth is always agape when Christians claim to be right in going to these gatherings not bearing in mind what the scripture says in 1Cor. 6:14 that “be ye not equally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” . Some will even forsake fellowship programme because of these gatherings.

It is high time Christians desisted from all work of iniquity as we know that what is wrong is wrong. People are no more reading their bibles but Christians’ life.

To be in GOD’S PRESENCE, Christians should abstain from all appearance of evil 1Thes. 5:22, but in every situation, there is always a choice. Every Christian has the choice to either serve God wholeheartedly and end up with God in heaven or serve God with deceit and end up with Satan in hell.
I think your question rather should be this; At the Rapture, WHY WON’T I GO?
