The truth is still truth even if you don’t agree…


 

If you run a red light or a stop sign, you know that you broke the law.  

It doesn’t matter if you didn’t cause an accident, the truth is that you broke the law and you know you broke the law because the law says…don’t run a red light and don’t run a stop sign.  

But the world today wants to tell you that running a red light or a stop sign is okay because the law was meant to be broken if it feels okay to you.  

The world will tell you that as long as you feel okay with running the red light or the stop sign, you’re not doing anything wrong because you didn’t hurt anyone.  They will tell you that breaking the law is up to you because it just depends on how you feel.  

So what if everyone feels okay with running red lights or the stop signs?  Wouldn’t that create a mass amount of chaos?  

You see, the law, not to run a red light or a stop sign, isn’t there to protect you from other people.  Whether you agree or disagree, the fact remains…the law was written to protect you from the one person that would bring you the most harm…

The law was created to protect you from yourself.

YOU …don’t lie.

YOU …don’t commit murder

YOU …don’t covet

YOU …don’t steal… and so on and so forth.

Yet the world wants to proclaim that the law wasn’t created to protect you from yourself.  The world wants to proclaim that the law wasn’t created for any other reason than a simplistic guide for others to not harm you…but, of course, that’s only based on how they feel at that given moment.

yet!!… God himself is looking you in the eye and stating quite clearly…

YOU!!    YOU!!!    YOU!!!!!!!  

Obey the law!!!  

And when you don’t obey the law, there are repercussions.  

Also, there are repercussions for being repeatedly disobedient to God’s law, which brings us to  Romans 1: 18-32

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.  For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.

Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.  For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper, being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.

You may disagree with God’s commandments.  You may not agree with God’s plan.  You may not agree with the word of God. Heck, you may not agree with the law of God, but the truth still remains…No matter how much you disagree with God’s commandments, plans, words or laws…that does not nullify any of them, and living a life of disobedience to God will only lead you to one place…

Separation from God for all eternity.  

.

There’s a common lie being spread through the churches today that God accepts you just the way you are, but based on Romans 1:18-32 that message just is not true.  

God will not accept blatantly disobedient people.  

God will not accept those who blatantly disregard His laws and commandments or live a life that is contrary to His truth.  

God will not accept any person who’s lives are filled with wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossip, slander, hate of God, insolence, arrogance, boasting, inventions of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving or unmerciful.

The truth is, God will only accept those who’s heart is humble and who express true feelings of remorse affected by the guilt of wrongdoing..in one word:  contrite.

God will tolerate disobedience for only so long…

Word to the wise….Don’t test the patience of God.

    • The definition of smug: contentedly confident of one’s ability, superiority, or correctness; complacent.

      My guess is that you are smart enough to know that the appearance of being smug will irk some people. So you attempt to appear that way. Yet the very fact you commented gives lie to that appearance.

      Perhaps you should consider trying what our Lord suggests in a certain verse.

      Psalm 46:10 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

      10 “Cease striving and know that I am God;
      I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

      Contemplate the matter. Know how small you are. Consider the endless stars. Wonder how it all came to be. Know that our Creator is God.

      If there is no God — if you are all that matters — then nothing matters. Yet Creation gives testimony to the fact that someone does matter, and we matter because we are His children.

  1. Amen, I like your update.

    I do believe that God meets us just as we are, but He loves us too much to leave us where we are. You are right, we as the modern, western church have often dropped the ball on standing up for simple right and wrong as the bible states it.

    I have a post this afternoon about usury, credit and debt, and while I didn’t really go into it very far, I often do feel as if the church let me down, “the church” in general, because I was trying very hard to be obedient back in the day and there was so little support for such things, so I was basically abandoned.

    Obviously I don’t make a very good victim, at least not for long 🙂 but just the same,there are some things “the church” in general did that have made my walk so much harder, and they all revolve around simply not standing up for what the bible really says. Usury is only one example, but we also have churches flying the rainbow flag, churches for choice, a group of Catholics staging mock ordinations of women priests,and assorted other things. That is my leadership,that is my moral support,that is who I am supposed to turn to for my values. Of course I known better,I know Who I really follow, and yet I also know the church as a whole has some things going on they’re going to have to answer for. I of course am part of “the church,” so WE are going to have to answer for those things.
