Could it be we are truly overwatered and most rotten in our roots? I could easily provide answers and demonstrate support from a thousand facts, but will they reform our vision, our ears, our hearts unto repentance? Even if people were to see a man rise from the dead they will not believe (Luke 16:31), so I think not. We have facts and data, surfing and speed, information and more, and yet hearts are darkened while claiming to be in the light. Good is called evil, evil is elevated, and everything elevated is worshiped.
I cannot help but think of Sodom’s root sins – she was full of pride, full of food and did not help the poor and needy (Ezekiel 16:49). Overwatered? Rotten? We are in need of digging up, pruning, and replanting. We need the perfect amount of water, rightly balanced nutrients and LIGHT that comes straight from the Father’s hand – not disguise of Satan (2 Cor. 11:14). I would dare say, and if mere statistics were not enough (which they clearly are not), then examine the tree (Matt. 7:16-20; Luke 6:43-45) and see if unbelief regarding the Scriptures (2 Tim. 3:16-17) is indeed one of the seriously rotten roots – not to mention roots stinking from the Bible being misused, misapplied, and simply missing of historical and biblical context.
