Posts Tagged ‘lying’

It is not ‘sad‘ to love God who created us.
It is not ‘sad‘ to want better for your children or to have moral values.
It is not ‘sad‘ for a young person to refuse to conform to a society that lives only for ‘the weekend’!
It is not ‘sad‘ to have an ambition to help others & share the gospel.

What IS ‘sad‘ is the thousands of people dying every day who are unsure of where they’re going, people living without hope. Lives ruined by alcohol and drugs from years of too much partying and parents encouraging their kids to drink. Broken young girls without good role models selling themselves short and guys more than happy to take advantage. People worshipping money & career, filled with greed and hatred. Countless addictions and illnesses including depression. A media society which promotes sex, murder, lying, cheating and stealing – THAT’S SAD!!!!.. and when someone refuses to take part in this almighty mess we persecute them and call them ‘sad‘.

I know a better life, I have hope and a future so you’ll never see me back round to the way I once was. When you know and understand the truth He changes you. He gives you a new heart and new desires, the ‘old life’ is no longer fun – it’s empty and meaningless.

If you’re fed up with the constant pointless grind of life or wondering ‘what if there is a God..’ I urge you to seek Him now before it’s too late. Get down on your hands and knees and beg Him for forgiveness and to save you. Secure you’re salvation!

I know where I’m going which is why I refuse to waste my life. Do you?

I used to hear this analogy on Way of the Master Radio (now Wretched Radio) and I thought it was excellent and gave me a clearer unstanding of how offensive our sins are to a holy God

If I lied to my children, there isn’t a big consequence as a result

If I lied to my wife, then there is a good chance that I will be sleeping on the sofa for at least a few nights

If I lied to my employers, then there there is the possibility that I may be fired

If I lied to the government then I can be jailed for treason/perjury

Same offence in all cases but different consequences

What’s the difference on each scenario? It is to whom the offence was made and as you can see above, the punishment increases the higher the authority is.

Every lie that we tell whether it be big or small (in our eyes), is an offence to God who is infinitley more important than the government and therefore the punishment is infintely more severe. When we stand before the Judge of the universe, we will have to give an account for every word and every deed. This gives us just a small indication of how high Gods standard is and how holy he is. There is no way that any human can attain to Gods standard and leaves us in a big predicament. This is where Jesus steps in, in that he took the punishment in our place on the cross and for those who have repented and put their trust in him, in exchange, can have the righteousness of Christ, thus inheriting eternal life.
