Trent TV: Delusional Participation

Today’s Trent TV installment should alert and alarm those who tend to be lulled into thinking that all is well, when in fact, real Biblical standards are being overlooked and unmet.  As long as people are making conscious decisions to water down the truth, Trent Ling seems content to let them go their own ways.  But, to the extent that those off the pace remain unaware of the fact, he gives them yet another chance today to reconsider their ways, and in this case specifically, to re-evaluate their participation in the faith and in the fellowship.

“It is well documented that the early church was devoted to the fellowship, among other things” Trent reminds everyone. “I have always felt bad for those on the fringe, those seemingly going through the motions, and those missing the devotion we read about in the Scriptures.  I get zero excitement in cracking a whip in these matters.  I am, however, obligated in love to hold to the standards and to test and judge others by those same immovable standards that are not my own.  We’ll see if this helps anybody out, or whether all stand rather content with their stations in the faith.  My job is to point it out, and not to insist or demand that anyone make it happen.”

Trent TV: Delusional Participation — 4 Comments

  1. I am guilty as charge. I could not use this comment as ‘participation’ as I have thought about my getting open emails to the ministry. Thank you Trent to let me see it and for the direction to participate, not delusional ones.

  2. Guilty as charged! Lately, I have been accounting for when I breach what I refrain from–although it is needed, and I don’t do it as a checklist, you call me to be more, thank you!

  3. Oh how I have been delusional! It aches as I review. And then the thought of how it effects others. The forgetfulness is the worst because it puts you into an orbit of not even remembering what you’re supposed to do — and then thinking you’ve done it! The participation hasn’t been consistent and must be. Oh Father, may I tighten up this ship. I long for it.

  4. Ouch!

    This is so true! I can totally relate to that. Sometime, I have to turn around to see if I close the garage door or not. The worst for me was when I thought I already told Trent something and he said no, then I forgot who did I mention it to? Did I only have a conversation in my head? Did I fall down (humbly)? Anyway, thanks for the wake up call.
