No matter what it seems like, and what others say, the religion of Jesus Christ has never been popular, and it never will be popular, because the world knows its own. See? And you're not of the world when you become a Christian; you are a different person from the world. We know that.
Jesus said, "I pray, Father, that they not be of the world." So you're not of the world. The world, the Bible said, "If you love the world or the things of the world, the love of God's not even in you." That's the Scripture says that. So you can't love two masters, Jesus said. You can't love God and mammon. The word "mammon," translated means, "the world." And He said, "You'd either serve one and hate the other, or vice versa." Jesus said that in Saint Matthew the 5th chapter. Can't serve the God, and the world at the same time, you've got to be one or the other.
And God have mercy.. That's what's the matter with our people today called Christian in this--this nation. They're trying to live like the world and profess to be Christians. And that's the reason the unbeliever, outside, has such a hard time to make up his mind, is because he sees people that call themselves Christians, live no different than the rest of the world. That's pretty blunt, but that's truth. We got to face truth.
