THE OLD TIME RELIGION


Old Time Religion

When we speak of the old time religion we usually have in mind going back a few years, maybe a hundred or so.

A closer look reveals they were dealing with the same issues that we are today and simply stated it is rebellion against the known will of GOD. It isn't as if we don't know what HIS will is but it is a case of hardness of heart and being egocentric.

Egocentrism is the problem that withholds a right relationship with Almighty GOD.

As usual we can trace the issue all the way back to the Garden of Eden where they knowingly violated the will of GOD.

The suggestion that they could be as wise as GOD so appealed to Adam and Eve that they took the forbidden fruit and enjoyed it. So often that is the cause of sinning; we enjoy it. That is until the price must be paid.

Dare I ask myself what do I have on my plate that is forbidden? What is that which starts my saliva glands to water when thinking about it?

An issue that has been and still is today, people manifest what is in their hearts but in order to do that with a measure of comfort they must unseat Christ from the throne of their heart.

Judges 21:25 There was no king in Israel at that time, everyone did whatever they pleased.

Where there is no King there is no restraint from doing what you want to do.

Matthew 24:37 When the Son of Man appears, things will be just as they were when Noah lived.  (And how was that)

Genesis 6:5 The LORD saw that human evil was growing more and more throughout the earth, with every inclination of people's thoughts becoming only evil on a continuous basis.

Matthew 24:39 They didn't know anything was happening until the flood came and swept them all away. That is how it will be when the Son of Man appears.

The strength of any nation is the family unit. Today the family unit is under attack like never before.

Redefining marriage and family does not change the definition of it in heaven; it only diminishes its value in the eyes of those who are deceived by the great deceiver himself.

Question for today! How much would my conduct need to change if "Vetted" by the Word of GOD?

Enough of that! Check out Robert Blair
