"....but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."

"The Last Christian" by David Gregory excerpts

Let me reetirate, this is a great book that I think every Christian needs to read.  It is a forecast of where Christianity in America is heading and is a real eye opener.  One thing he points out as part of the reason that people don't get saved anymore is that there is no real difference between some Christians and non Christians, and since there isn't a change, why bother?  That is so sad!  Can people tell you are a Christian by the way you act and dress, or do you have to tell people so that they will know?  Are you an example of Christ?  You don't want to be part of the reason Christianity falls in America do you?  Then you need to study God's Word and give yourself a "makeover"!
Okay, I'll stop preaching for now, :) and give you some qoutes from the book that I really liked.:
Remember, the book is fiction and set in the year 2088:
"Many people didn't keep up with either parent anymore.  The parents of my generation had never married and hadn't contracted to stay together more than ten years.  Parents had become a life stage, not a permanent commitment."  Don't you see this starting to happen already?
One of the many themes of the book is "Life", you have bioligical life and what would you consider the other Life"? God is Life. "This (pregnant) mother's life was constantly flowing into her baby.  The baby didn't have to do anything to get it.  It was already his.  ...Apart from her, he had no life. .... All he had to do was be at rest and receive that life."  This is just like a Christian's relationship with God.  We have no life apart from Him and He gives it freely to us.
Here is a link to his website with more information on him:
This book tells it the way it is and makes no excuses.  Please read this book for a great blessing!
Happy Reading!
