The Great Majority
By Gary Amirault
The great majority of Americans remained silent when our government burned to death men, women, and children in Waco, Texas not long ago.
The great majority of Germans remained silent when Hitler set in motion his "final solution" regarding the Jews in Europe.
The great majority of Jerusalem yelled, "Crucify, crucify," when Pilate asked what should be done with this Jesus of Nazareth.
The great majority of Israel always seemed to gravitate toward false gods.
The great majority of Christians are perfectly satisfied with a little worship on Sunday and maybe a study at midweek.
The great majority of Christians think the God of Christianity is an eternal tormenter.
When the Creator wanted to begin the long process of setting man free from idolatry, He took one man , Abram , out of the majority who bowed down to idols.
When the Creator wanted to bring Israel out of idolatrous Egypt, He took one man, Moses, and processed him for 40 years.
Throughout the hundreds of years of Israel's existence, the majority of the people always went astray. God would send one man or woman, or a few to turn the entire nation. Read the prophets and learn.
When Jesus picked His disciples, He picked a hand-full.
When it was time to preach the gospel of the uncircumcision, He picked one man, Paul. A man who didn't preach hell!
The great majority of the church, whether Roman Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Charismatic, or otherwise, believe that the Christian God Who is love will ultimately torture the vast majority of mankind for eternity. He either couldn't or wouldn't save them from this fate which He Himself created. Will you follow the majority, whose God is in their own image, or will you follow the minority, whose God is Love, the Savior of all mankind?
