Character Purity aims to edify the populace about the need for Character Perfection, and Victory over Sin, before the imminent return of Yeshua (Matthew 5:48)

Are We Indifferent? By Sister Yellowdays (June 2008)

Satan’s enmity against the human race is kindled because, through Christ, they are the objects of God’s love and mercy. (From the very beginning of the great controversy in heaven it has been satan’s purpose to overthrow the law of God) Satan summons all his forces and throws his whole power into the combat. Why is it that he meets with no greater resistance? Why are the soldiers of Christ so sleepy and indifferent? Because they have so little connection with Christ; because they are destitute of His spirit. Sin is not to them repulsive and abhorrent….They do not meet it, as did Christ, WITH DECISIVE AND DETERMINED RESISTANCE. They do not realize the exceeding evil and malignity of sin, they are blinded to both the character and the power of the prince of darkness….While men are ignorant of his devices, this viligant foe is upon their every track…..let Christians never forget that they “wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against wicked spirit in high places.” Ephesians 6:12 “Be sober, be viligant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 All who seek to follow Jesus will be brought into conflict with this relentless foe. The more nearly the Christian imitates the divine Pattern, the more surely will he make himself a mark for the attacks of satan. “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” Ephesians 6:11 Taken from parts of chapter 30, in “The Great Controversy”.
