you do well to be offended

Let those who love the LORD hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 97:10 

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good Romans 12:9 

To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Psalm 8:13

Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it: but thou shalt utterly detest it, and thou shalt utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing. Deuteronomy 7:26

what is tragically lost in today’s world is a sense of moral outrage…

we have been desensitized to a point that nothing is offensive and anything goes…

God however has not changed His position on anything, His judgement and justice remains true an changes not…

we should not mistake as permissiveness God’s grace of allowing time for us to come to our senses and repent

God admonishes us in scripture to regard unclean things as an abomination, to abhor evil, and to keep it far from us

the surest way to keep from sin is for sin to be as much of an abomination, as offensive, as detestable, as much of an outrage to you as it is to God

if we truly are reborn as a child of God and have His nature within us, then the things that are an abomination to the Lord should be an abomination to us as well.

if we have the Holy Spirit indwelling within us, then the things that grieve Him should grieve us…

Love that is sincere, by nature hates evil…

if the sin that pervades the world does not bother you, then you would do well to examine yourself…

[The wicked] deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way that is not good; he abhorreth not evil. Psalm 36:4


You get more of what you reward
Children should have consequences for bad behavior
And should have rewards for good behavior
It is better to learn about consequences in a safe environment at home where parents can measure out the consequences in a safe but instructive way…
later, as adults, they will not have the covering and protection of parents to “soften the blow” of consequences

better they learn as many lessons as possible while young…


The only one worth fearing in this universe is God
If you put your trust in Yashua then you truly have nothing to fear
Fear not them who can destroy the body, but fear Him that can destroy both body and soul in hell.
If you are not in right standing with God (still stained with sin) you do right to fear
Fear is the beginning of wisdom
If you are in right standing with God (repented of your sin and received Yashua’s free gift) you have nothing to be afraid of…

think positive?

where is the concept of positive and negative in the Bible?

the terms positive and negative are products of new age and eastern mysticism, and they reduce God to a ‘god of forces’, an impersonal energy that can be manipulated by our will…  a ying yang dualism where everything has a good side and bad side…

positive and negative are subjective and we tend to identify things as positive if it is something that we like and negative if something uncomfortable… we like it because it places us in the judgement seat to determine what is good and what is bad…

The Bible on the other hand endorses the Truth as defined by God and speaking the Truth motivated by Love.

Truth is not positive or negative.  Truth just is…

God determines what is good and bad, and He created everything good, but many things have been corrupted by sin and rebellion…

persecution from within

As we move further into the ‘end times’, we will continue to see increased persecution of true Biblical Christianity.

Before Christianity in general is persecuted, the popular ‘christian church’ will continue to elbow out and eventually come to openly persecute Bible believing Christians.

We see that one of the signs that a people have rejected God is that God gives them over to be slaves of their own lusts (Rom 1:24).  The most evident sign of this is their acceptance and even promotion of homosexuality (Rom 1:32).  The abomination of homosexuality (or to use the Biblical term: sodomy) will become the “litmus test” the popular ‘church’ will use to identify all those ‘evil’ fundamentalists.

The pagan roman catholic church is now considering changing its public stance on homosexuality and launched a study into ‘civil unions’.  This of course is no big leap for an organization whose clergy is already made up of homosexuals and pedophiles.

We see this happening with so many of the protestant (reformed catholic) denominations normalizing the abomination of sodomy and even endorsing it by appointing sodomites to clergy positions and performing so-called ‘marriage’ ceremonies.

We see this happening within the non-denominational and ‘Charismatic’ circles as their new age practices “go to seed” and their “new revelations” seek to embrace everyone with their gospel of  happiness and prosperity without a need for sin, repentance, and changing lifestyle preferences.

Also we see the current pope reaching out to the reformed catholic denominations, the non-denominational, as well as all other religions to join together in one big “it-doesn’t-matter-what-you-believe-as-long-as-you-kiss-the-ring-of-the-pontiff” tent.

Eventually, what few churches that do not advocate for homosexuality will loose their tax-exempt status for promoting hate speech and then eventually forbidden to operate publicly.

Anyone who stands on scripture and does not go along with the predominant view of the ‘church’ is already seen as a closed minded fundamentalist ‘hater’, and this viewpoint will only grow more polarized.  Those who hold true to scripture will be further marginalized and vilified by those who call themselves ‘christian’ and think they do God a service…

These folks need to read Revelation 17:16 and keep in mind that once the harlot church has outlived its usefulness, the beast will turn on it and rend it to pieces.

inventing evil

“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just as they did not see fit to honor God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper inventors of evil and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them. –Romans 1:26-28,30,32

Having such a hardened heart that they are driven to invent evil…
