Word of Wisdom

Today’s society has people who want the entire world to accept their sinful behavior.  For example same-sex marriage has been an issue for a while. People want to amend the Constitution to accept same sex marriages.  Yet, the Bible speaks against it in Leviticus 18:22, “you shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
            Living a life of sin can be seen while society is slowly falling apart at the seam. The media is filled with murder, rape, robbery, and theft of every kind. Also terrorism and rumors of wars are in the news daily.  We are familiar with how Satan deceived Adam and Eve and told the first lie to the both of them. This allowed sin to take a foothold on their lives and on the lives of every person ever since.
            The result of sin causes one to be separated from God, whereas, in Adam and Eve’s case they were evicted from the Garden of Eden. Plainly spoken they were separated from the Tree of Life, their home, and their relationship with God. They became spiritually dead because they had no vital contact with God. We should not forget that sin does negative things to everyone. Being spiritual dead is a bad state to be in for anyone. Also, we should not forget that sin is totally against God and it hinders our relationship with God.
            Our lifestyle should be an example to our family and friends who have never receive the Gospel of the Good News. Sin is subtle; a worldly person may not identify it as being a sin, so we must continue to pray for our loved one.

  1. We can live holy according to the Word of God and still love one another. Just because we love you as a person does not mean we accept you living sinful. We can still pray for you to come into the knowledge of the truth and accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
