So Let Me Get This Straight…

No, all of these things are actually bad because they corrupt justice. Please don’t tell me this nation, like many others, is not heading toward judgment. We have essentially turned justice on its head and deserve what we have caused or allowed. It is in vogue to blame victims, censor truth, and applaud evil. The nation that does that cannot hope to stand long.

Judge Not? Don’t Throw Stones?

But in today’s “Christian lite” world, “love” is all that matters. Unfortunately, that love is often a gushy mix of feel-good emotions and a desire for no harm. Today’s “love” strives to create a false unity, where everyone just “gets along” and no one critiques another for his or her failures. This is not Christian love. It is the hippy love of the 60’s where it was believed that if it’s okay with a person, then it’s okay for them and no one should dare to tell them otherwise. That has absolutely nothing to do with love as defined by God. If that was love, then there would have been no need for Jesus to die a terribly brutal death so that we might receive salvation.

Compromised Christian Leaders

Savage has kept this hidden for 20 years from the public, for his own protection. It was hypocritical and duplicitous. He used his position of authority to overcome a weak-willed woman who looked up to him (2 Timothy 3:6). By his own actions, he has disqualified himself from further professional ministry and should do the right thing.

Delighting in God’s Word

The individual (Christian or not), who chooses to begin listening to the world, will eventually find him/herself in the position of siding with that world. There’s a lot of that going around today. The Bible clearly states that to be friends with the world is to be an enemy of God (James 4:4). Why? Simply because the world’s system is completely opposed to God and His ways.

Your Physical Health is Important Too, Christian

Christians are notorious for wanting “more” of God. Certainly, that is a good thing and it is something we should pursue (as long as we pursue it correctly, according to Scripture). However, these same Christians seem to care not one iota for their own health. I’ve lost count how many Christians I know who suffer from mild to severe health problems (including obesity/belly fat), but seem to not notice the connection between what they eat and the resultant health issues that they experience. It’s mind-boggling.

Loving God Equals Obedience…

John makes several statements at the end of 1 John 2 that we need to focus on. The first one deals with our reaction to Jesus when we ultimately and physically see Him. If we lived our days as Christians until we die striving to be in obedience to Jesus (from the heart), we will not be ashamed when we see Him. However, if we lived in a way that feeds and glorifies self, giving into the temptations around us, we will be ashamed when we come into Jesus’ Presence.

NAR’s Call for Restoration of the Church

I clearly recall the new worship leader inviting people to clap and even dance in the aisles of the sanctuary during morning service. He wanted people to worship God in the way he thought was appropriate, through emotional displays. Where is the self-control? Where is the decorum that is so often spoken of in Scripture? Too often today, love for God is relegated to our emotions. While we certainly should be glad for what God has done for us, with hearts filled with genuine praise, the reality is that love is best seen in our quiet, submissive obedience to every aspect of His will. Anyone can dance in the aisles and shout “hallelujah!” However, it means nothing if our lives do not conform to His will in obedience.
