Grey

The Bible warns us of those that like to cause confusion. In fact, Isaiah 5:20 KJV says, Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Preachers and teachers attack and argue with the word of God on a regular basis, usually a result of interjecting their own conscience. How can they read you the exact words of the Bible and then serve you up a watered down or simply wrong meaning. Perhaps they don’t call black white or white black, but they can cause much harm spreading the grey. A few recent examples follow:

  • When the Bible says Job was perfect, Job 1:1 and Job 1:8; it doesn’t really mean he was perfect.
  • When the Bible says for willful sin there remaineth no more sacrifice, Hebrews 10:26; it doesn’t mean wilful sin but rather a rejection of the gospel.

Perfection with Christ’s help is possible. Jesus told us in Matthew 5:48 KJV
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

And when the Bible says to fearfully expect judgment that will devour the adversaries when you sin willfully that is exactly what the Bible means. Don’t trample upon the blood of Christ and disrespect his sacrifice with willful sin. Hebrews 10:26-29.

At the Cross

You’ve read stories to your children. You’ve watched Disney movies with them. You may have even killed a few thousand bad guys together on Xbox. But have you talked to them yet about Jesus?

You do well if you have and if you’ve told them he died on the cross for our sins. It might be easier for them to understand if you told them Jesus died on the cross to show us how to live. Jesus walked perfectly before his Heavenly Father, our Father. During his walk he shed blood, sweat, and tears to teach us not to sin, to teach us the difference between right and wrong, and to do his Father’s will. He gave his life for us. He died for his teaching and for the truth, so we will strive to always do the good and avoid the bad.

May your children never be as Pontius Pilate asking what is truth. May they know it and live it. Please understand that depends largely on you, their parent and their guide.
