In our culture of offense in which so many people are offended by anything contrary to what they want to do – the Holy Spirit still warns everyone who yet has ears to hear (2 Peter 2):
“The stone which the builders rejected [has become] a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense . . . because they are disobedient to the word, and to this doom they were also appointed.”
But with the Holy Spirit’s warning also comes the promise: “I lay . . . a precious corner stone. He who believes in Him (Jesus) will not be disappointed.”
Our own eternal life or eternal death remains our choice. We can be offended by truth.
Or be saved by it.
