There was a party at the frat house two doors down over the weekend, and this morning our street was littered with dozens of these tiny square flyers. They are topped by a trinity of attractive women in suggestive poses inviting college students to #OneHellOfANight at Club Indulgence.

As I collected the trash, my temperature rose. I am angry that the Devil’s siren-call deceives our young men and women into lying down on this deathbed of debauchery and self-destruction.

And then I noticed the date. Friday, April 14th… Good Friday, April 14th.

Oh, the irony of this evil hashtag! If only they knew that the penalty of sin is death. If only they knew that all who indulge in the flesh will reap the wrath of God. If only they knew that Hell really does await all who walk in disobedience.

Lord, have mercy!

If only they knew that God offers forgiveness to all who repent and believe in the Gospel. If only they knew that Jesus lived the life we should have lived. If only they knew that Jesus suffered #OneHellOfANight so that we don’t have to!

When the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” … And the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And when the centurion, who stood facing him, saw that in this way he breathed his last, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of God!” (Mark 15:33-34, 38-39)

Please pray for the anointing of the Holy Spirit as God’s people spread the Gospel of Truth into every deceptive stronghold of the Enemy.
