The church likes to condemn men who reject their “gospel message” as willfully evil and therefore deserving of God’s wrath. In reality men reject this story for several different reasons. Some believe it and are so petrified by it that they spiritually freeze and never respond in the way the church would require. Others believe it and conclude that the god described by it is unworthy of their attention and respect. In other words they accept the story but reject the god supposedly behind it. Then there is a group which rejects the story all together, seeing a different picture of God in their heart. None of these groups reject because they are any more evil than those who accept the church’s message and respond as the church dictates.
