The Bible doesn’t pull punches!

We’ve looked the other way and allowed deceptive agendas to dictate how we think, what we say, and how we live our lives.

Instead of standing up for what we know is true, we’ve allowed threatening voices to shout us down and intimidate us into silence. We don’t want to be labeled hypocrites, even though those doing the branding are themselves the definition of hypocrisy.

We do our best to avoid accusations of intolerance by those whose idea of tolerance is to embrace only those who agree with the accusers.

Charges of discrimination are aimed directly at those who believe God’s Word and honor His authority. Holy Scripture, God’s Word, is taken out of context and used to maneuver people into accepting the lie that there’s something wrong with them if they don’t give up their values and embrace the new definition of morality. Impostor authorities have elevated false claims in order to justify sin.

The Bible doesn’t pull punches! God makes it abundantly clear what constitutes sin. He also warned that sin would become rampant.

He warned us that His Truth would be called a lie. The result is that what’s right is called wrong, and what’s wrong is called right. It’s bad now, and it’s going to get worse.

God warned that many people would be deceived. It’s happening, make no mistake! Even some churches are changing to be more in step with the world, allowing things of the world to permeate.

New ways to worship are being introduced, with the aim of attracting more people, especially youths and young adults. It does appear to be working. However, deceit often wears the disguise of truth. Is God’s Will being obeyed, or are we leaning on our own understanding? God warned about that, too.

God loves us. His love is pure. He sent His Son to die for our sins because He doesn’t want us to perish.

But, nowhere in God’s Word does He say we humans determine the definition of sin. God already defined sin, and He isn’t impressed with our attempts to justify it.
