Funny...we keep hoping the same thing......the Bible (in case you hadn’t noticed) is a book of rules because human beings proved at the very beginning that they could not follow even one simple rule....the consequences of that disobedience was death for the entire human race....has God changed? Has human nature changed? Are humans still disobeying God, justifying all manner of things, the rules for which He has given us with very explicit examples in the scriptures (for our instruction) so that we would know where to draw the line in our choices.Amen to that. I would love to see their eyes truly opened to the real, bright light of Jesus.
Those who want to disobey God, can’t see the line, because they don’t want to......they have fallen for the same false reasoning that Eve fell for....you can decide for yourselves what to do, in spite of what God says.
We have to be obedient to our Creator, mindful of even the small things that might offend Him. (Luke 16:10)
Justification only works on the people who are justifying things that they know deep down is wrong, but who have talked themselves into thinking it doesn’t matter. If they love it, their heart will find a way to keep doing it. (Jeremiah 17:9)
We will all find out soon enough, what matters to a God who has never changed.
