FROM THE PULPIT: Are you hearing voices – or The Voice?

Published: Friday, July 19, 2013 at 06:48 PM.

“What are you doing? Who ever thought you were capable of doing this job?”

“Mrs. Adams, this is Dr. Jones. Your test results are in and I’m afraid it is not good news.”

“Mr. Smith, this is the police department. We have your son down at the station.”

These are the kinds of voices that can change our lives, voices bearing bad news. If too many of these voices are heard it can cause us to feel overwhelmed. And if they continue without pause, they can cause some people to try to escape. If we try to escape, another set of voices, very seductive ones, begins to be heard.

“Come on. Have one more drink for the road.”

“Here, try this pill. It will help you forget all about your problems.”

“Come here. Let me take care of you for a while. Your spouse doesn’t understand you like I do.”
