Question: I read part of your info from the apostolic free library and I know how many are going to fall away due to offenses. I just want to know what you think of the church people, why would they behave offensively? I was with a sister who has known the Lord for over 22 years and has walked with him, however, she came to my house, dropped something and said, 'Sh*&'. Wow! Then she is always speaking of wanting to hit someone, not a gift of the spirit. On another occasion, her sister and a friend picked up me and my son to go to church. I got in the car and was waiting for my son to come out. The sister asked, what is his name, and I told her Eddie. When he got to the car and got in (he is fat) she said, What did you say his name was, Fatty. We don't know her for her to be insulting. I was going to curse her out and get out, but I thought she has to stand before God like me. My point is, what's happening to the church? I think their getting cold blooded.

Answer: Jesus said that in the last days, 'because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold' (Matthew 24:12). The people you describe are not submitted to the law of love; therefore their hearts have grown cold. They may have known the Lord at one time, but they have drifted away. If something does not turn them around, they will not be welcomed into glory.
