Romans 1:32 KJVS
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them.
In the horrid depravity of the heathen, the truth of our Lord’s words was shown: “Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil; for he that doeth evil hateth the light”
The truth was not to their taste. And we all know how soon a man will contrive, against the strongest evidence, to reason himself out of the belief of what he dislikes. But a man cannot be brought to a greater slavery than to be given up to his own lusts.
As the Gentiles did not like to keep God in their knowledge, they committed crimes wholly against reason and their own welfare. The nature of man, whether pagan or Christian, is still the same; and the charges of the apostle apply more or less to the state and character of men at all times, till they are brought to full submission to the faith of Christ, and renewed by Divine power.
There never yet was a man, who had not a reason to lament his strong corruptions and his secret dislike to the will of God. Therefore this tidbit of info is a call to self-examination, the end of which should be, a deep conviction of sin, and of the necessity of deliverance from a state of condemnation.
Please remember these articles are the work of a humble servant of Yeshua doing His bidding as a Watchmen sounding the Trumpet to warn of impending danger within the Assembly. May our Father abundantly bless each one of you with wisdom and discernment to go forward as His “Modern Day Disciples.”
Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee, Trust ye in the Lord forever: for in the Lord Yeshua is everlasting strength. (Isaiah 26:3-4)
