Knowing But Not Wise
Anyone that watches any amount of television today is well aware of the sexual immorality that is being pushed on society. Everything from children being sexualized in ways that just a few years ago would have never been tolerated. This is to say nothing of debauchery in all aspects of human relations. Looking God in the face and calling Him a fool seems like an unwise decision. It seems like that because it is. Not only does this have a direct effect on the individual who stands before God and community and proclaims this lie as truth it also has a direct impact on the overall community.
The Gospel is very clear about this but it seems society today wishes to view these particular truths in a way that is outside of the teachings. The attempts the church is making to explain away these truths is not only disheartening it is fueling the fire of debauchery, sin and chaos that we live with day in and day out. Until we reject this debauchery out of hand it will only get worse. We must get back to the cross and the teachings of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 4 NKJV
1 Finally then, brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you should abound more and more, just as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please God;
2 for you know what commandments we gave you through the Lord Jesus.
3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality;
4 that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor,
5 not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God;
6 that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified.
7 For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness.
8 Therefore he who rejects this does not reject man, but God, who has also given us His Holy Spirit.
