We are living in an environment of spiritual entitlement.
Some of our religious institutions are trying to sell the doctrine of “validation and elevation / self-realization and self exaltation.”
Many have forgotten God’s doctrine of self-denial, self-sacrifice and unselfish love. Now we want God to give us what we think he promised us because we did what the preacher said we should do to make God do what we want him to do. We feel entitled to our wants, wishes and prayers regardless of our unrepentful attitudes, unwashed souls and wicked spirit.
However, we don’t need to be validated in our sins nor elevated in our wrongs. What we need is conviction of our sins, repentance from our wrongs and to be born of the water and of the Spirit – born again.
