This, more than ever, is a time of spiritual testing - William Wildblood

Many times over the past 10 years I have written that this is a time of testing

Of course, that is always the case in earthly existence but today the work of the past 2,000 years is coming to a head. 

You can tell this because at no other time has there been so little awareness of God

People have always sinned and behaved badly but the culture was always religious. 

No longer. Now even religion is not religious for the most part. 

But that is good because it means we are being forced back on ourselves

We must become spiritually self-reliant if we want to become spiritually mature

This doesn't mean every man is his own pope but every man must make his own connection to God

This is not an easy task because the fallen self within us constantly gets in the way but making your own connection to God does not mean rejecting outside help in the form of scripture, religious teachings, whatever. 

It simply means not depending or relying on that outside help. Use it to illuminate your own soul. 

That is the proper goal of all spiritual endeavour.
