Breakfast with Brad – Agents of Judgment or Messengers of Invitation?
In which judgment makes Brad defiant rather than repentant … adding sour cream and salmon flakes to his Kraft Dinner. What if God understands that dynamic, too?
Ancient thoughts along similar lines:
“There will come a time when corruption and lewdness among the youth will reach the utmost point. There will hardly be any virgin youth left. They will see their lack of punishment and will think that everything is allowable for them to satisfy their desires. God will call them, however, and they will realize that it will not be possible for them to continue such a life. Then in various ways, they will be led to God… That time will be beautiful. That today they are sinning greatly, will lead them to a deeper repentance. Just like the candle before it goes out, it shines strongly and throws sparks; with its light, it will enlighten the surrounding darkness; thus, it will be the church’s life in the last age. And that time is near.” -Seraphim of Vyritsa
