Proverbs 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.
It seems in today’s culture more than ever before; sin has been made legitimate in the eyes of many. It has even been made to appear to be reasonable and thought of as ok in some of our main line religious denominations.
The questions must be asked, when did God give man the right to call sin ok? For example, for most people in America, the Bible was for centuries understood to be the final authority in truth. However, now when the Bible says homosexuality is a sin and the world says it is a lifestyle, we who agree with? Many who believe that the Bible is always right are called intolerant. When the Bible says pre-marital sex is wrong and the world says, “they are consenting adults so who does it hurt,” we who trust God’s Holy Word to be right are looked upon as being narrow-minded. When the Bible says, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate,” and “strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life,” but the world says we are all alike and there are many roads that lead to God, we who maintain the Scripture to be accurate are looked upon as unable to see the bigger picture.
I guess if the rest of the Bible is not true, then probably those people who question God’s Word do not believe this verse either. “There is a generation that are pure in THEIR OWN EYES, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.” …. That cannot be this generation… Right? Or is it?
If you are faced with the choice between what God has to say on a subject and what man says about the same subject, here is a thought to remember. God has been around a lot longer and really knows a lot more than the person telling you that God is wrong. Hmmm!
