KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:
Proverbs 16:5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:
It seems today many people are against the work of God’s people. Popular view is the order today. Not what’s right or even what’s wrong, it’s just simply what man wants. The democracy of humanity rules today’s morals. If enough people proclaim something right with a loud voice, for a long period of time, people begin to believe it must be so.
Example, some Christians today are confused over the claim that homosexuality is a lifestyle designed at birth. The prolonged battle, loud opposing voice, and financially backed claims have clouded the truth of scripture. Even though God proclaims through all of scripture it is sin, since man now proclaims it is not, we must make laws, and spend thousands of hours and dollars in our courtrooms to keep homosexuality away from our children in school. Why, because we have begun to believe the lies spoken by man.
If it is a lifestyle from birth and God creates all people, God has then made them to be something He repeatedly says He hates. Yet the same Bible says He loves all men. Something is wrong here. What is it? It’s man, discarding parts of the truth. God hates sin and loves humanity. Therefore, this sinfulness could not be created of God. They have joined hands, promoting this sinful life.
This is but one example. The same is true in churches, homes, and businesses worldwide. Selecting the truth of scripture we want to obey and discarding the rest. The Bible says they who do so “shall not be unpunished.” Or can we toss that part out of the Bible too?
CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:
We must again realize that the entire Word of God is true, and not just the parts that fit our current life. We should attain to mold our life after the Bible and not mold the Bible to our life.
