Worship graven images.

Many modern cultures worship graven images, which are anything that is venerated—whether it is an image of a rat, a Buddha, Mary, dead “saints,” or even an icon of Jesus on the cross. For those who would disagree with such thoughts, read carefully Exod. 20:4,5. The Ten Commandments couldn’t make it any clearer that we are not to bow down to any image. God alone is to be worshiped. It is a tragedy that the Roman Catholic church removed the Second Commandant from their catechism and split the Tenth Commandment into two to hide the fact that it is missing.

Micah 5:13 Your carved images I will also cut off, And your sacred pillars from your midst; You shall no more worship the work of your hands;

No hope without Jesus.

Without Jesus of Nazareth, none of us have any hope. If He was not who He said He was, we are still in our sins and hell awaits us. Never doubt the promises of God, even for a moment. He who does so cuts gaping holes in his own parachute.

Job 17:15 Where then is my thope? As for my hope, who can see it?

God’s good pleasure.

God extends favor toward us as we stand before Him clothed in the righteousness of Christ. We can boldly draw near the throne of grace, having obtained redemption in Christ (see Heb. 4:16). It is now the Father’s good pleasure to give us the Kingdom (Luke 12:32).

Esther 5:2 So it was, when the king saw Queen Esther standing in the court, that she found favor in his sight, and the king held out to Esther the golden scepter that was in his hand. Then Esther went near and touched the top of the sceptre. 3 And the king said to her, “What do you wish, Queen Esther? What is your request? tIt shall be given to you—up to half the kingdom!”

When morality becomes subjective.

This is the result of a nation that forsakes God’s Law. Morality becomes subjective. The only answer is the power of the gospel changing the heart of the sinner so that he will want to do what is right in God’s eyes.

“How did the evangelical movement get so far off track? I wouldn’t suggest that evangelicalism’s recent obsession with political activism is the only factor, but I do think it’s a major one. If the same energies and resources that were poured into failed political efforts had been channeled into evangelism instead, I’m convinced that would have been instrumental in producing more spiritual good and hindering more of society’s evils than all our lobbying, demonstrating, and voting combined.” Phil Johnson 

Judges 17:6 In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

With God, nothing is impossible.

Some skeptics think that Judges 1:19 contradicts Luke 1:37, “For with God nothing will be impossible.” It was Judah, not God, who could not drive out the inhabitants of the valley. The assumption is that because God was with Judah, they were therefore promised victory over their enemies. This is clearly a faulty deduction. It is true that nothing is impossible with God and that He was with Judah, but the problem was their disobedience. Even though they had earlier been assured of victory against their enemies with iron chariots (Josh. 17:18), they apparently became fearful and failed to trust God to give them victory. God is with the believer; nothing is impossible for Him to accomplish through those who obey Him. There is no contradiction.

Judges 1:19 So the Lord was with Judah. And they drove out the mountaineers, but they could not drive out the inhabitants of the lowland, because they had chariots of iron.

“Is lying acceptable… sometimes?”

This is a contentious issue. Most husbands would lie if an armed intruder asked if his wife was hiding in the house. If he said, “Yes, she’s under the bed,” then he would be enabling her murder. What would he say if he’s forced at gunpoint to watch while the gunman rapes his wife before murdering her: “Sorry, honey; I didn’t want to tell a lie”? These scenarios are often brought up by the unsaved to justify lying. But God knows the difference between incidents like these to protect the life of innocent victims, the use of “discretion” to protect someone’s feelings, and bold, deceitful lies to protect ourselves.

Joshua 2:4 Then the woman took the two men and hid them. So she said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where they were from. 5 And it happened as the gate was being shut, when it was dark, that the men went out. Where the men went I do not know; pursue them quickly, for you may overtake them.”

Are you a good person?

Evildoers think they are good people, while advocating the killing of children in the womb, homosexual marriages, and other things that are offensive to God. All the while they think their behavior is fine in God’s eyes. That’s why the Law must be thundered from the pulpits and echoed in the streets.

Malachi 2:17  You have wearied the Lord with your words; “Yet you say, “In what way have we wearied Him? ” In that you say,  “Everyone who does evil Is good in the sight of the Lord, And He delights in them,” Or, “Where is the God of justice?”
