This statement has been made to us for years. Pastor tells people who leave to not try to have any reasoning relationship with those of us still at Calvary Temple. If you leave — or get thrown out —NEVER reach back in to us. Why? In order to keep our blind eyes closed and our dulled hearts at ease. He certainly would not want a fresh, chill, breeze of the truth to awaken us out of our death-like slumber.
But God says, “Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:17-18). “While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out” (Matthew 25:5-8).
