Lack of Discernment is Becoming the Norm

God gives wisdom to those who ask for it and it often doesn’t come with any type of ecstatic experience. It’s just knowledge born of wisdom and discernment. It’s very “pedestrian” compared to the antics that are on display at too many meetings and churches today.

Expect Even Less Discernment as the End of the Age Approaches

It is the same with our relationship with Jesus. You know what I always think as being a bit strange? During worship services, you’ll see people wiping their eyes, getting out their handkerchiefs, and crying.

If no one discerns what is right and true today, then error abounds. The reason there is so much error today is because there is little discernment. When some step forward in an attempt to discern, they are quickly shouted down, called names, and heckled. This should not be, but unfortunately, it exists. “But there were also false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of,” (2 Peter 2:1-2).
