What I did not buy at Target
Sometimes weird things make me ruminate on information perhaps more than I should. I was at Target when a man came up and wanted to to talk religion with me. It turns out that he wanted me to buy into his weird cult (World Mission Society Church of God) that believes that there are 2 gods – God the Father and God the Mother. According to this man’s interpretation of Gal 4:26, Gen. 1:26, 27 and Rev. 22:17 there are 2 gods rather than a Triune Godhead. I argued back, of course, but eventually I told Him that I felt he was deceived and I was not interested in buying what he was selling. When I looked up information online, I was startled at the size of this cult. 20 new religions start up each year in America; some make it and some last for only a short season. That is so crazy to me. But, of course, the guy I talked to thinks he is right and I am brainwashed. As I read through Revelation with ears to hear I am reminded of how horrible the end is for those who deviate and lead others away from the truth, et al. How much more we need to actively pursue the truth and diligently live and share the Gospel.
