Wrong as Gandhi was in rejecting Christ as God’s Son, he simply anticipated our society’s attitude. We want Jesus...BUT...on our terms. For example, we expect anyone we want to be saved shall be—even if they don’t want to be. We expect those who embrace lifestyles that Scripture says will never inherit God’s Kingdom, I Corinthians 5:9-13, Galatians 5:16-21 as examples, to inherit it even if they have no intention of repenting—and we dare God not to save them.
That entire attitude is spiritual suicide! Jesus is a WHOLE PERSON, each part perfect and, in unison with other perfect parts, the PERFECT PERSON. He will not be fractured into compartments competing with each other. And won’t be divided by sinful humanity into their fragmented personalities.
If we won’t accept him as He revealed himself, he won’t accept us at ALL. Jesus honors those who honor him. Who seize the opportunity to be saved and tenaciously serve him. But it will always be on his terms, never on ours. And, unless we oblige his terms, we’ll die in our sins. And he won’t feel guilty sending us to Hell. And he won’t take responsibility for the decisions we made that put us there. End Part III
