Journey to Christendom - Chapter 3
“It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”

Why I am writing now begins to get more personal and more straightforward. The main reason I have not responded more quickly to God's call to discuss these gifts openly is, quite simply, that I have been afraid. Outside of my heart, I have been afraid to make the statements I just finished making in the first two chapters. These statements can clear a room in about three seconds and leave one feeling very alone. The problem is that I believe them to be the truth and perceive that God will no more allow me the luxury of being politically correct or popular.
It is like being at a dinner party where you are the only one who believes that the square root of nine is three. You know you are speaking the truth, but you don't want to offend your friends; you don't wish to be ostracized. But at a certain point, at a particular dinner party, you feel enough is enough, and you declare with dogmatic certainty that the square root of nine is three in objective reality! Alas, you are told that this statement is rude and inconsiderate. Some at the party were born oriented to believe otherwise. Others were conditioned so, or some such nonsense, so you keep silent. You smile and quietly write a book for fear you will be invited to no more dinner parties! Well, my dinner party invitations from those of the feel-good, relative morality crowd might be over. Our children and we are in a deadly spiritual battle that calls for courage, clear thinking, and, most of all, clear speaking in an age of meaningless words, arguments, and philosophical musings.
I have more seriously been afraid because the entire world is locked in an angry, intolerant, horrible, and deadly nightmare driven by a spiritual cancer. This spiritual disorientation claims a unified oneness, a humanistic worldview that worships a godless human potentiality. In this world, all apparently less essential beliefs, such as one's personal and subjective religious beliefs, are acceptable and equal in both value and authenticity. This has the practical meaning that nothing can really be believed with any integrity. If you believe something, you must manifest it in your life. But if you display it, you offend those feeling differently; therefore, you cannot live it, which means you cannot really believe it. This imprisoning propaganda of the modern mind, with its own dogma, which it denies having while at the same time promoting it, is pontificated as valid while denying the true and freeing doctrine of enlightened religion, namely, that of the Roman Catholic Church. Modern thought encourages man to experience a radical individuality, or rebellion, for which he was never intended, and by which he cannot survive, and from which he is dying; he and all his children. That makes me afraid.
