I was thinking this morning that people don't want to seek after God because they are comfortable in their sin and if they actually meet God, they don't want to have to change from their ways.
When we meet Holiness face to face, we are then faced with our own corruption and that is convicting.
People do all they can to avoid "eye contact" with God because they know that God will require change.
It is an interesting thing indeed to see people squirm in their sin. When that happens, they lash out at everyone who speaks truth and accuse them of being "fundamentalist" "intolerant" "narrow-minded" "archaic" and "irrelevant".
The truth of the matter is people like living in their sin. They will continue to do that until they truly encounter the One Who is without sin.
