Jude 14-15 application

Apostates come in all shapes and sizes.  In Jude 15, Jude talks about the coming judgment of Christ (during his 2nd coming).  The text says Jesus will come “to execute judgment on all and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds and…of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.”

MSNBC records a recent example of sinful speech in a recent news article. 

 ‘Oct. 1, 2007 issue – Some stories are best told straight. On Sept. 8, Kathy Griffin, a bawdy, foulmouthed comedian, accepted an Emmy Award for her reality show, My Life on the D-List, and in her acceptance speech she explained that while other actors might thank Jesus for such an honor, she wouldn’t consider it. Suck it, Jesus,‘ she exuberantly added, waving her statuette in the air. ‘This award is my God, now.'”

Jude 4-16 makes a very sobering point: Sin and judgment go hand and in hand! 

With that said, praise God for his grace and his forbearance!  Perhaps Kathy will repent and embrace this Jesus as her Savior and Lord one day?  For her sake i pray she does!!!

  1. I wasn’t really surprised when I heard her say this. Hollywood says it every day, if not in as many words. That award truly is her “god”, since she does worship at the altar of “self.”

    In fact, Paul warned us about people like her. Philippians 3:18-19 (ESV)–“For many, of whom I have often told you and now tell you even with tears, walk as enemies of the cross of Christ. Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.”
