IF IT’S LEGAL IT MUST BE ALRIGHT


Note:  My continued story will resume soon!
 


We say it is LEGAL !  So it must be alright !
 
 
A word for the young

This bit of logic is the driving force for a large percentage of the people on earth.

They have elevated the conclusions of man as to what is right and wrong far above what is recorded in God’s Book.

Things like adultery, fornication, and the gay life style to name a few are all brought into the status of being legal.

Everyone has vices that are legal and are pursued by them yet what does the book say about that which you allow.

The principle of, “If I don’t believe it then it isn’t true,” controls the actions of the masses; yet their unbelief is often contrary to the Good Book.

The idea of, “If it feels good then do it,” is in sharp contrast with what the Book declares to be the truth.

The Book declares in plain words “If it’s right, do it” feelings aside.

From the pulpit to the pew, from the throne to the beggar all are commanded to obey the book. The Book excludes no one, all are commanded to obey it’s rules.

An issue that is easily over looked is;  Romans 14:7 For every man's life and every man's death has a relation to others as well as to himself.

The question is; how am I affecting the lives of others around me. I would add especially those I’m directly committed to.

My conduct may be legal but is it according to the Book.

What we do today remains with us into the future. One may be involved in legal adultery today but it will be a part of a future marriage.

The so called relationship will it be part of your future marriage?

The foolish virgin who, “Gives it up,” will bring her lover to her future always.

He will always be a part of what she does for there is no eraser because it is a life time experience and will always be a part of her.

Knowing this the question is, ‘Do I owe my future mate to be virtuous now in my daily walk.”  The Book says yes you do. 

Just because it is legal it doesn’t make it right in the sight of GOD and he judges based on his declaration of right and wrong.

The most bitter words of all; “Thou are without excuse oh man.”

Bitter but true, you, me are without any defense; not one excuse for our actions.

Should you join with the psalmist and say; Psalm 119: 11 I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

Or should you submit to the world to be used at it’s pleasure?

People speak of treasure and which is the greatest treasure of all.

I submit that the greatest treasure of all is your life and it is precious.

Treat your life with the respect it deserves and live it according to GOD”S Holy Word.

  1. I often say "Life Gets Complicated". In our present-day time, our present-day world is filled with significant approved issues in most places and they are often filled with sinfulness that is accepted. I'm heart-broken re: this. Thanks for sharing.
