Is one FULLY convinced of Christ and His amble provisions IF he never opposes false religions?

Is he afraid to oppose the catholic system, tongues churches, etc.?

Is his silence a sign Christ is just one of his many “lucky charms”? Christ IS the Answer, All-By-Himself.

If we love Him we oppose all that He opposed and opposes. Amen? – Ouch?

A bum sauntered by mumbling to himself.

A child skipped by, whispering like an elf.

A businessman strode by boasting to his friend.

Then two socialites pranced by – patter without end.

The paper-boy trod by slurring his chant.

A cabby stomped by, in a wild rant.

A soldier paraded by teasing his girl;

While a baby toddled by; its sounds awhirl.

Witnessed this, as I stood by, in a train station,

Waiting to go bye-bye, to my destination.

That is a SERIOUS question.
