Choosing To Sin

By Ray Gano
It is interesting when we see people who know the scripture, raised in the church, know the right thing to do and yet still choose to act in rebellion and choose to sin.

God has stated to not have fellowship with the world, and yet so many Christians the world over are allowing the darkness in when they themselves know better. Every sort of lust, deviance, and blasphemy are entering into the personal lives of Christians today.  Because of that, the very same lust, deviance and blasphemy have rooted themselves in the churches today.
I personally believe there are several factors to this.
1 - No respect / fear for God
2 - We have trivialized God’s Word.
Here is what God’s Word says…
John 14:15 (KJV) If ye love me, keep my commandments.
Now that seem pretty black and white to me.

God’s Word is God’s Word.

Old and New Testaments make up God’s Word.
John 1:1-5 (KJV)  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2  The same was in the beginning with God. 3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
2Timothy 3:16 (KJV) All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
Deut 6:5-7 (KJV)  And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might. 6  And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 7  And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Note that it is ALL scripture that is God Word, not picking and choosing what we want and chuck the rest due to our own personal pet sins. God does not lie, nor does He change His mind through the ages.

The plain fact is that we obey Him, or we don’t. There is no grey area. 

So knowing this, why do so many of us choose to blatantly sin?

Listen,  I am not talking about sin because we are still part of the sin nature, I am talking about out and out "I am going to sin and no one is going to tell me not to."

I guess what I am trying to describe is gross rebellion.

Do you know how much adultery is taking place in today's churches? How about the "casual sex" in Christian singles groups?  Folks, this is out and out rebellion and people are hiding behind the title Christian to justify their sins.

I often get emails calling me every name in the book, un loving, mean ol fundamentalist Christian, intolerant of the worlds filth and sin.

To all those out there, you don’t have a problem with me; you have a problem with God the creator of the universe.

Here is another news flash, one day you will stand before Him and give an account.

Folks, God said it, He meant it, and in the end He will have the last word.

To all those who know what is right, know God's Word and refuse; well you will have it worse.

To the so called “Christians” and religious leaders who have not heeded God’s Word, and tolerate the filth and sin of the world, here is what you have to look forward to…
Matthew 7:21 -23 (KJV)  Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
To all those who do not know the Lord and are in rebellion living in sin, here is what you have to look forward to..
Revelation 20:11-15 (KJV)  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. 12  And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. 13  And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. 14  And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
It all comes down to one thing… 

Who Do You Serve? 

Jesus stated the following…
John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
If you do not have Christ in your life, you will spend eternity in hell. This is a fact. It does not matter if you believe this or not, it is the truth spoken by Jesus himself. If your name is not written in the Lambs Book of Life you will go to hell for what you have not done and that is accepting Christ as your personal savior. To be placed in the Lamb Book of Life, you need to turn your life completely over to Him. Having “head” knowledge or “just believing in Christ” is not the same as having “heart” knowledge with Christ living in your heart.  We know that even the devils believe in Him, where are they spending eternity?
James 2:19 (KJV)  Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
We work hard at Prophezine to show that Bible Prophecy is coming to pass. Because of this fact, the Bible is true. Since the Bible is the true and inerrant word of God, there is a heaven and there is a hell.

If you claim the title of “Christian” then take account of yourself this day. Many claim the title, but we read in God’s Word that the title does not get you into heaven.

Who you serve will determine where you will spend eternity. If you are not serving Christ and a true child of God, then you are serving Satan and a child of the enemy.

If you are not 110% sure, then take account of yourself, your very life depends upon it.
1John 1:9 (KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
