Perhaps last week you somehow stumbled across David Wilkerson's, An Urgent Message. In that post, he wrote, "AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE ARE ALL GOING TO TREMBLE - EVEN THE GODLIEST AMONG US."
The caps are his.
If you follow the link, you will see the rest of his message if you would like to.
I'm with Grace.
What would be truly a radical notion, is that we had an urgent message that God is love. Yes, since I am an evangelical, I already know the immediate evangelical responses that want to tame or put the love of God and his good gifts into proper theological and biblical context. One of my fundamental core objections to presenting God as such a wrathful, vengeful Deity to all who are susceptible, is that fear becomes a deeply embedded motivation in such spirituality in the evangelical subculture and community. When such a notion is so deep into communal psyche, it bleeds into our views of leadership, male-female relationships, marriages, families, mentoring, discipleship, and automatically reframes hope--one of the greatest realities for all Christians as something, well, less than robust and authentic for the here and now. "Even the godliest among us," Wilkerson says, are going to "tremble." And although some evangelicals may distance themselves from such rhetoric, it doesn't take long to see where fear is portrayed as a deeply embedded motivation in evangelical spirituality.
