As our society deteriorates, we must know what we believe and why we believe it.
The truth frees us:
The truth is what sets us free — only the truth. When we speak of the truth, we are talking about the word of God. Truth exposes the lies and deception of this world. The world doesn’t want absolute truth. They want truth that constantly changes with the whims of man’s fancy.
Sin destroys us:
The culture is constantly changing. What is acceptable today wasn’t acceptable yesterday. This is the very reason our cities, states, and people are so messed up.
Sin always destroys — it never produces a good result. The reason society is so messed up is that society, as a whole, has moved further and further away from God. There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end thereof is death (Proverbs 14:12).
God’s word exposes deception:
We must cling to the word of God and seek God each and every day so we don’t get caught up with the deception of the world. Only God can help mankind — only when we repent and come back to Him, His ways, and His teachings, and be doers of them.
Let’s all pray that God opens the eyes of our understanding so that we will know and recognize the truth and never walk in deception.
Just a thought,
