Proverbs 16:5-7 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished. By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil. When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
It seems like today; many people are against the work of God’s people. Popular view is the order of today. It’s not about what is right, or even what is wrong, it’s just simply whatever man wants. The democracy of humanity is what rules today’s morals. If enough people proclaim something right, with a loud enough voice, for a long period of time, people begin to believe it must be so.
For example: some Christians today are confused over the claim that homosexuality is a lifestyle designed at birth. The prolonged battle, loud opposing voices and financially backed claims have clouded the truth of scripture. Even though God proclaims through all of scripture that this way of life is sinful, 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? It’s because we have begun to believe the lie spoken by man.
If this is a lifestyle from birth, and God creates all people, God has then created them to do something He repeatedly says He hates. Yet the same Bible says He loves all men. Something is wrong here. What is it? It’s that man has begun the process of discarding parts of the truth. God hates sin, yet He loves humanity. Therefore, this sinfulness could not be created of God. They have joined hand in hand, promoting this sinful life. God does not hate people, He hates sin. All sin.
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 should we toss that part out of the Bible too?
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
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 fit our life.
