Luke 7:31-35

And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying:

‘We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not weep.’

For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ But wisdom is justified by all her children.”

Personal Challenge

What is it with today's modern generation? It has become the norm to redefine God the Father and His Incarnate Son in ways that fit the individual. This is much like the days of the Gnostics when the teachings and traditions of the church were abandoned for the teachings and ramblings of men who believed that they had the right to interpret the scriptures on their own. This was heresy in the early church and it is heresy today 2,000 years later. Lord, have Mercy! Lord, have Mercy! Lord, have Mercy!
