Seeking to please only the self no matter the cost… a tale of destruction


For decades people have been taught that to succeed to become answerable only to oneself is the ultimate goal.
Yet this is not what the Bible teaches.
Humility. Seeking to help others especially those within the Christian family, but not limited to the Christian family is part of the ultimate plan from Christ Himself.
In fact when Christ added two more commandments, oh you didn’t know there is actually twelve commandments now, oh well let’s go there.
The greatest commandment per Jesus Christ is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind and soul. It was actually taught in Deuteronomy 6:5, but called the greatest and a commandment by Christ.
The second commandment Jesus then goes on to say is that we are to love our neighbors as we are to love ourselves.
This means to place all humanity as our equals, but as Christ Himself says about His task upon this temporal plain was this:
Matthew 20: 28 “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Since we are to strive to be Christ-like then should we not too seek to serve our neighbors, our fellow humans as best we can?
The answer is yes.
So to seek to have success to seek after wealth, to tread upon our fellows not caring if they are hurt, finically destitute or even killed is the total opposite of serving God.
Then if it is opposite it is seeking not after Christ and salvation, but death and destruction.
Yet this is how most in the world think, many of which call themselves “Christian.”
This makes those that do call themselves that hypocrites, and liars not only to themselves but to everyone else and especially to God.
Revelation 21:8 “But cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral, those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars—their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
1 John 4:20 – If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? 21 And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their fellow believers.
