sermonette: Who Am I?
Joseph B. Baity
Given 26-Sep-18; Sermon #FT18-03s; 19 minutes
Joe Baity, focusing upon the shocking epidemic of loneliness which, evidence indicates, afflicts over 42 million adults, maintains that humans have an innate need for connectedness. A recent study conducted by Brigham Young University concluded that people with strong friendships live longer. Because of the curse of loneliness, people are turning to legally and illegally acquired drugs to fill in the gap. Our society, because of rebellion against God's Covenant, has become afflicted with anxiety, panic disorders, confusion, fear, and terror. The Satanic doctrine of political correctness has silenced us, making us fearful to exercise our God-given need to communicate. Millennials, transfixed to their smart phones, text instead of talk, losing themselves in virtual reality instead of human relationships. Communication with fellow humans becomes rare, communication with God essentially non-existent. God has called us into the His Family; we should form a bond among each other, comforting, edifying, and encouraging one another—the best antidote to loneliness.
