Good and evil!
Today people are taught, and want to believe, that there are no such things as good and evil! Nothing is really right or wrong in itself; it all depends on how you feel in yourself.
But God still says, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness…"!
God our Creator has clearly indicated there are rules for getting the very best out of our lives, and, according to Him, "It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear" than for these to be changed!
Of course you don't have to follow your Maker's instructions, because when God made man He gave him a freewill! In the same way, if you buy a new car you wouldn't have to follow the maker's instructions. For example, you could put water into the engine instead of oil - it wouldn't be so messy and would be much cheaper! But it would prove a very costly way of discovering that the maker's instructions were best!
What about the loving and wise instructions of your Maker? Every rule He gave for living was for very good reason. When you try to convince yourself that evil is good you not only mess up your own life but also the lives of others! And you cause God to be angry with you for rejecting His advice for that precious life and soul He entrusted you with.
When Jesus said God's laws would not be changed He then give this example: "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery."
The very religious Pharisees sneered at Jesus' teachings: just as many people today scoff and ridicule God's Word. Jesus said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight."
Today too, the rules of religions and of men are popular but the Word of God is being considered detestable!
When Jesus came as the Saviour for the world
He said, "The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John (the Baptist). Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it."
The Gospel says that for a sinner to become acceptable with God he has to repent - to want to turn from his sinful ways - and have faith in Jesus
to forgive his sins and change his life.
That person is described as being "born again,"
and is ready for Heaven.
Here again some "sneer" and say no one can claim to be sure of heaven and go forcing his way in! But the good news is that by putting your faith in Jesus the Saviour your are "forcing" your way into Heaven
and there is no force in Heaven or earth that can keep that person from getting to Heaven. "Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies."
All who trust in Jesus Christ as their only Priest and Saviour are safe for Heaven!
Read of those who sneered at Jesus' teachings in Luke chapter 16, verses 14-18.
To read more of Luke's account of the life of Jesus turn to the Gospel of Luke in the Holy Bible.
Bye for now,
