As I began to pray this morning, I felt a sudden burden for the Church. Since I usually go through life unburdened, except for the things that selfishly bother me, and because what I was hearing in my heart was, to the best of my knowledge and experience, what the Lord “sounds like” when He has spoken to me, this seemed genuinely to be from Him.

Obviously, you can decide for yourself whether you think this was something the Lord would say.

So, I took to my knees and interceded for the Church. As I prayed, I had the sense the Lord was saying that He had rejected the culture of the United States as well as the many aspects of the Church that had attached itself to it. I had a picture in my mind—I’m reluctant to say that the Lord put it there—of all of us on top of an avalanche. We were sitting on the materialistic detritus of our culture—all the tech goodies and luxuries that we so enjoy—and having a great time, seemingly oblivious to the reality of catastrophically rushing down a dangerous mountainside.

Now, the question is, what should my response be?
