Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. John 8:43
Much is said today about free speech.
Sitting for the National Anthem is free speech.
Burning the American Flag is free speech.
Standing on the sidewalk with a sign that says, “Black Lives Matter” is free speech, all protected by the Constitution.
Yet the double standard is I am not allowed to read my Bible, pray, or share the Gospel message in certain places. My free speech is hampered by those that believe it’s their free speech to stop my free speech.
The problem is not with the Constitution – the problem is with the hearts of those that would stop the spreading of the Gospel.
Jesus’ word is true when He spoke the words of John 8:43!
The people of His day were not able to listen to His words – just like today.
The word of God is an offense to the sinner. It is an offense to evil. It is an offense to those against God.
Many don’t go to church because they don’t like what they hear.
Truly the words of Paul are fulfilled – the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 2 Tim 4:3-4
