Thanks brother James….I remember Adrian Rogers using an illustration about a frog in water. He was talking about sin, but it applies I think. Something about since a frog is cold blooded, if you put it in cold water and slowly turned up the heat, that the frog would never realize he had been boiled until it was too late.
Thanks for sharing, by the way!

That boiled-frog story is a favorite among Conservatives, but, supposedly, the frog analogy is not true. Liberal frog research says the frog knows enough to jump before the water gets to hot. Apparently, the original research was flawed.
When I learned that Liberals got upset enough about the boiled-frog story to research the matter, I chuckled unhappily.
1. Where were the animal rights activists?
2. Frogs may have enough sense to get out of an out-of-control hot tub, but do humans? Are Liberal researchers going to test that too? Doubt if will upset animal rights activists as much.
3. The point of the boiled-frog story is that it is intended to illustrate human behavior, not the behavior of frogs. Only someone who badly wants to stay in hot water would focus his argument on the scientific validity of the analogy, the boil-frog story, instead of the problem the story is intended to illustrate.

I’ve heard of Adrian Rogers mentioned before. Good stuff? I like this saying; it reminds me of the need for consistent personal time with God and His word, just me and Him.

It is good stuff. Sadly, he passed several years ago. Google Love Worth Finding ministry. He’s just a good old fashioned Baptist preacher, with probably the best voice that every preached.
