The more things change, the more they stay the same. There’s a common misconception that major world events are always connected to each other somehow. I spent a few hours Theology ( Biblical Studies) looking for where people had “Just For Today” conversations with the Book of Ecclesiastes. This much I could establish: these changes are suppose to happen in order for us to grow out of our systems of thoughts and beliefs and disturbance-messages.
Rather sadly, too many people believe that major world events are “Just for Today.” This gives rise to a “feel sorry for them” attitude and political correctness that prevents Christians from being honest about who’s actually doing the Sodomizing the Earth thing. Of course, to the world they’re doing it–Sodomizing the Earth is always a bad thing!
Jesus said [Matthew 5:45::16] “You brood of vipers, how can you speak good things when you are evil in this [unclean] city?” After the beating of the servants, Jesus referring to the city’s cleaning staff said [Matthew 24:12::30] “which of you is a hired hand? I tell you the truth, even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
Everyone of them is a sinner and so do you. We were all created in the image of God but unfortunately, born sinners, we have evolved into individuals that only know their interests as individuals, instead of searching for the interests of our Creator. We “do the things” to get what we want. We lust after what is wrong [inaudibly, in our own terms], and we take care of what is wrong as a means to get what we want. In reality, what we want is always outside of us. We only seek what is good and beautiful [inaudibly], and not the ugly or rotten fruit of life.
As a result, we are effectively, unable to have a true relationship with God. Colossians 2:1-3 reads:
For you have died, and your soul is dead because of sin; for everyone who sinned is born of poverty and the lack of the knowledge of God; and they all fall short of the glory of God, who is the projector of our faith.
Sadly, it has been demonstrated throughout history that the masses often follow the wrong leader and therefore, miss out on the right choice. Read carefully, Colossians 2:4-5:
For it has been God’s purpose, for both the believers and unbelievers, to present you a choice in Christ. In hope of eternal life, Christ took a permanent work of the cross. That is why, in the gospel, the wise says, “centeredness is better than envy.” The soul of Christ came in order to establish a solid founded relationship that has a confidence and boldness about it, and this confidence and boldness is the result of our having met God’s requirements for us and our spirits abiding in Him [John 1:12].
Jesus is our “Control Himself” in Ephesians 1:18-20. He is the author and perfecter of our faith. He brings to our remembrance the things that God has spoken to us and made known to us and He has moreover given us the strength by which we are able to voice His call. Hearing the Word and keeping it before our eyes by meditating on it day and night keeps us in a constant awareness of its presence.
In this way, we are able to repent. To repent means, to turn back to God and admit that we’ve been wrong. God forgives us, but it is at the heart of being reconciled back to Him.)! There is a chasm between sin and forgiveness. Can we ever get to the other side of it?
Jesus is the Author and Perfector of our faith, He died for our sins, suffered, and rose without sin to sit at the right hand of the Father. And because He lived a perfect life, God has entrusted to us the task of achieving the highest level of purity in our lives. This is the authentic Christian life. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” [2 Corinthians 5:17]
Being Christians is mainly having a great love for Almighty God and His dear Son, Jesus Christ. No, it is not for our own sinners, our own striving to be better, but for sinners across the world. Whoever is in Christ is a new creation [2 Corinthians 5:17] and is made holy by God, through the Casting Out of Discard, Calvary, and the Cross.
