And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
1 Kings 18:21
We have, I hope, a large number who are on Jehovah’s side, who fear God and serve him; we have a number who are on the side of the evil one, who make no profession of religion because they are both inwardly and outwardly the servants of the evil one. But the great mass of today’s Christian belongs to the third class—the waverers.
Some people dreaded Jehovah, and, therefore, could not totally abandon him; and others fear men, and, therefore, thought they must embrace whatever religion they propose. The prophet insisted upon the distinction which existed between these extremes.
Men and women of our generation can be likened to birds hopping about from bough to bough, not knowing on which to settle. Our decision-making system lacks definite precision. But today am repeating the words of the prophet, how long will you keep wavering?
