Comfortably numb!

Matthew 13:15 For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

[Why have so many become so spiritually dead in today's society? Because their eyes and ears have become anesthetized to truth; they don't recognize truth when they hear it or read it. Many have no interest in God's Word. Many deny God exists.

In the above verse their eyes are closed because they do not care; just as many, maybe more, do not care today. They have time for everything the world has to offer, but little time to study and search for truth in God's Word. Their eyes and ears have become closed to truth (Hebrews 5:11). They just listen to their priest or pastor without ever checking them out in the Word of God. They have become "comfortably numb" with false teachings and traditions of men.

This situation can be remedied. Study the word of God yourself and learn the truth. Don't be satisfied (comfortably numb) with anything besides God's whole truths. Do as He commands in 2 Timothy 2:15. What a concept!
