    HEFNER'S PASSION FOR DISTRIBUTING THINGS OF INIQUITY AND OUR PASSION FOR THINGS OF THE INFINITE!

    HEFNER'S PASSION FOR DISTRIBUTING THINGS OF INIQUITY AND OUR PASSION FOR THINGS OF THE INFINITE!
    Duke Jeyaraj

    Hugh Hefner, the Playboy mag founder who died a few days ago, volunteered to distribute/sell Playboy mag himself on the roads and to people everywhere when there was a newstand ban on it in the year 1960 in the US state of Connecticut, I just read in a New York Times article. What a passion for distributing to all, an instrument of utter ungodliness! Why don't we show some passion for the things of the Infinite(God)? Like, for example, an activity like Gospel tract distribution? This morning (30 Sept 2017), four of us belonging to different churches, distributed the Bubbly tract to some 200 travelers in what was a G4 Mission(



    www.dukev.org ) outreach event! What a privilege! We have miles to go before we sleep! My passion for God is not enough - I want it to grow more! I discovered from Revelation 3:16 that Jesus does not enjoy it when we church believers don't show enough passion! Lukewarm church believers would be spit out, Jesus mouthed there! Being cold is out of question, for us. That means we have only one option: our passion for Jesus must be red-hot!! After all, aren't we all ''blood-bought"? (I Cor. 6:20).

    I also read that Hefner, when he was well into nineties of his life, personally edited to a great extent the Playboy magazine (he did that till April of 2017). That made him the longest serving, active editor of any magazine perhaps! Look at that dogged dedication to make people's minds dirty! Do we show some of that dedication to live holy and motive others to live holy, atleast? We must. The writer to the Hebrews had a complaint: that the church believers he wrote to, were not that serious about holy living and sin-hating! When they had to chose between blows that would make them bleed and or a compromise with sin, many of them chose the latter and easier option! That is why he wrote in Hebrews 12:4 this: ''In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood." Will he make that same sort of complaint against us modern church believers who are often found going soft on sin and petting, impurity? Time for some self-introspection, friend!!!
