A Look Back at the Royal Wedding
We recently witnessed a royal wedding which topped the scales then it came to showcasing the beauty of the bride, the sensitivity of the groom and the deep and joyous affection each reflected on the other. It was heartwarming. We wish God’s very best for them.
Further, love was certainly the theme of the wedding, and certainly, the wedding sermon in particular - and we rejoice in all of this. The message, itself, however, should not go without warning. Love, not Jesus Christ, was offered as the solution to the world’s woes. Make no mistake, our Lord was quoted and was even cited as the ultimate example of sacrificial love, and for this we commend the speaker. Therein also lies the error. Christ was far more than an example. He was the sacrifice for our sins, He was the substitute who died in our place. He addressed the one issue the wedding speaker never addressed. Until the sin issue is resolved, men cannot love fully and completely, and sadly, love will never triumph. Liberation theology can never liberate until men are freed from their sins at the cross.
Those who watched the responses of the listeners (who represented an essentially post Christian culture), were likely impressed with the subtle cynicism which seemed to be reflected from face to face. And why shouldn’t they be cynical. Love, stripped of true redemption, may serve well as a bandaid for men, but it can never be a solution. This theology has failed a generation who embraced it and deserves a cynical response. Sadly, these dear listeners have been deprived of the One solution which has always worked when embraced.
“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” 1 John4:10.
Just so you know....In an age when folks work hard to obscure their true beliefs, we want you to know we love all of our brethren in Christ everywhere, but we stand squarely on the Bible alone and we interpret it in its normal literal sense.
