Sin is full of lies and deceptions.
We think we won’t get caught.
We think we can hide.
We think it’s okay.
We go from deceived, to delusional, to deranged, and become insane.
The path of sin leads to death.
Before hearts stop, they are cold and dead.
Sinners become killers.
The way to avoid sin and avoid destruction, deception, and becoming an inhumane person is the word of God.
Jesus is the word. Knowing him and not just attributing your opinions, thoughts, and judgments to him is the key.
Christian religion and hypocrisy hear the word, but do not do the word.
Christian religion and hypocrisy teach the word as a different gospel, while not knowing, hearing, applying and doing the word themselves.
Did Judas, Saul, Absalom, or Alexander the coppersmith know the word?
How can you love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and then love your neighbor; but your tweets, your posts, and your screeds are filled with sneering hate: judgmental Un-love?
You are exactly like the religious rulers who killed Jesus on false charges.
Your whole thrust of ministry is to judge, to change God into you, and not hold sinners to account; because you were involved in or witnessed legalism earlier in life.
Out of your hurt you overreacted and became a crusader, who is destructive.
The only thing that will keep any of us from becoming an inhumane, destructive, cruel, and destroying person; is the word of God.
If you do not know the word and let the word live in you, you simply become a false teacher.
The history of the people of God has always been that many of us would rebel and fashion a form of godliness without the power, a disconnected faith from the author and source.
Dwight L. Moody — ‘The Bible will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from the Bible.’
Knowing the word keeps us from sin, and we must do the word; live it.
Christians are people who have Christ, the Word, living in them: Christ-ians.
We are word workers, living love letters.
There are two paths, just two, in life.
The path of the word and the path of destruction.
We either love God or hate God.
We either love the word or despise it.
We are either life givers or destroyers.
If you say, “that’s harsh!”, you are already deceived and need to wake up.
It is God’s mercy, love, and grace; to say to us:
See, today I have set before you life and prosperity, death and adversity.
Truth sets you free.
Jesus loves sinners.
“I have not come to call the righteous.”
Change your mind.
