This is the focal point of free-will. The ability to choose to sin or not to sin. This is the gift and the curse humanity was given by God when we were created.
However, good choices are something that is becoming difficult if not impossible to make in today’s world. One example: Islam does not allow choice. It is either the Quran or death. It is this not being able to have a choice that draws those on the left toward. They think that the few should tell the masses how to think. Many not realizing that the “few” means a few hundred people at the most. While the masses is millions if not billions of people, including themselves. What is even more amazing is this “love” they have for this religion of Islam, is that when it comes to power. Most within the left will die at the hands of those that are the most ardent followers of it.
A prime example: the entire LGBTQ community.
Now here is the kicker. Those that truly follow the Bible do not agree with, nor support this lifestyle. However, they fully understand that these people’s choices to live their lives in this temporal life in sin. That Christianity as a whole offends those within the LGBTQ community, because it is made clear within the Bible that they are not welcome in Heaven. Islam says the same, but they don’t make it as visible as Christians do. Why?
Those in Islam just kill you, so you don’t see it because if it is found out it is permanently removed. Christians are just vocal about it. Saying that they need to stop living in this manner. It is this constant reminder that gets under their skin. For they keep hearing they are not living correctly in their choice.
Choice, is a very complex thing and most hardly think about its consequences on any level. Every single choice you make no matter how little can affect your relationship with God. This is why it is made clear within the Bible that the parents are fully informing their children of the Bible. Leviticus and Deuteronomy showed the ancient Jewish nation how to live their lives under the law and what was required to live a wholesome and pure live. These books are now totally ignored for the most part. They should not be.
Matthew 5: 17 “Don’t misunderstand why I have come. I did not come to abolish the law of Moses or the writings of the prophets. No, I came to accomplish their purpose. 18 I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not even the smallest detail of God’s law will disappear until its purpose is achieved. 19 So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. 20 “But I warn you—unless your righteousness is better than the righteousness of the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven!
Having faith and doing the all the commandments of the Bible, which are in the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. Yes it is not just the core Ten Commandments, or more accurately twelve, since Jesus added two.
Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.”
The choice not to teach our children the Bible has led more than an entire generation down a path where they are not even aware that how they simply live is leading them not toward God but away from Him. These choices over the last one hundred years at the least has gotten us to where there is a LGBTQ community. A community that by its very nature should not exist if they were truly taught the Bible. For they would realize that they are those of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Yes the need for the scarify was removed, but all other matters within these two books technically have not. Within these books is how we should live our lives, adjusted to today’s advance in technology, but still how we should choose to live. In moderation, caring for God and His Son than which sport team is doing best this month, or which movie or TV show is best to distract us. Watching sports and TV and movies are also choices. A choice to ignore the truth. That we are not living our lives as we should in the eyes of the Lord.
It is these choices that are truly sad. However we can change this. We can start to live our lives by choosing to truly follow the Bible. By choosing to live with both faith and by doing the works taught within the Bible, both equally. For that is what the Bible says what we are to do. Living only in faith is death, while living solely in works is also death. It is the choice to live both faith and works that is life. A life that may lead to an eternal life in the service of God our Creator.
