Every month businesses, media sites and television networks preach to the masses about Black History, Woman’s History, Gay Pride and so on as the calendar year unfolds. Whether you’re attending school, walking into a retail store or work for a large corporation, monthly themes often take on the form of propaganda. Advertisements, commercials, internet pop up ads and posters bombard individuals with a specific message or spotlight every week.
Everyone who commits (practices) sin is guilty of lawlessness; for [that is what] sin is, lawlessness (the breaking, violating of God’s law by transgression or neglect—being unrestrained and unregulated by His commands and His will), 3 John 4.
While many great people have been overlooked or omitted from history, who you are and what you become is based upon the choices that you make in life. If you come out of the closet to profess a desire to be recognized as homosexual or transgender, these individuals are now celebrated and praised by the national media. Meanwhile, if you speak up about being a devout Christian or Trump Supporter, you’ll probably be labeled a bigot, narrow minded or be accused of being a racist. Freedom of Speech appears to only apply to those who hold a progressive worldview.
Who of you convicts Me of wrongdoing or finds Me guilty of sin? Then if I speak truth, why do you not believe Me [trust Me, rely on, and adhere to Me]? 47 Whoever is of God listens to God. [Those who belong to God hear the words of God.] This is the reason that you do not listen [to those words, to Me]: because you do not belong to God and are not of God or in harmony with Him, John 8:46-47.
The world is like a series of cycles which go up and down and back and forth. In the days following September 11th, 2001, more people went to church than ever before in the United States. However, in the last 20 years, a sense of urgency has been lost as individuals have found other hobbies, things and ways to replace God. The apostle Paul says it best about maintaining a biblical worldview in Galatians 1:10. The choices that you make will reveal if you’re pleasing God or pleasing others. You reap what you sow whether good or bad. This is how it is. Choose wisely, Deuteronomy 30:15-18.
