This Sunday’s sermon will look at how God’s people in Hosea’s time were unfaithful to God and to His ways. You can read a good article at http://www.booksandculture.com/articles/2005/janfeb/3.8.html that gives some facts and figures for how Christians in the USA are not living up to the name of Christ that they bear. (It is copyrighted, so if you want to read the article, please let Pastor Sam know and he’ll get it for you.) It is probably safe to assume that Canadian statistics would be similar. The good news is that there is a subset of Christians who are indeed taking biblical teachings seriously, and who are living out the Christian life with more consistency. May we be like among them, and may we bring glory to Christ.
