Romans 1: 22.
“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools”
I watch fools in action daily. They have turned from the truth of God to the lies of the evil one.
They pronounce judgment on those who would protect life and glorify those who snuff out life before it is lived.
The lust of the flesh has drawn them into rebellion and sin, they no longer see and recognize the truth of creation.
“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.”
An old jazz song comes to mind, ‘I pity the fool’.
Like nature, we announce the truth of the Gospel. That is the sum total of our mission. People are free to accept or reject that truth.
Unfortunately, many choose the lie, over the truth. Our behavioral sins, pull us away from the truth. That sin, to us, is justified, God is love, we are ok, even when we sin.
The truth of the Word is; ‘We can be forgiven, but, we must turn from our sin and repent.’ Only then will we be blameless, justified, pure, covered by the blood of Christ.
‘God is Love.’ He sent His Son to save us all. We must believe and receive, change our direction, walk towards and with Jesus, to the throne room of Grace. The place of salvation.
The World Professes to be Wise. They have told us sin is acceptable. Proving themselves to be fools.
The Lord demands we be Holy, Acceptable, our minds renewed, that we will know the Good, Acceptable and Perfect Will of God.
‘I pity the fool.’
I pray they see and accept the truth before it is too late.
