The other day I discussed why sex should be reserved for only between one man and one woman as husband and wife. You can read more about that here.
In this post, I want to talk about the systematic, all out attack from the devil and those who do his bidding against holiness. Right now at the very moment I write this article, two mainstream Christian Artists have had their pages hacked on Facebook and are now posting random posts, most of which gravitate towards pro LGBT topics and porn or inappropriate sexual ideas, thoughts and content. That is a prime example of a systematic attack on holiness.
Don’t confuse holiness with righteousness. The two are completely independent of each other. The Lord commands us to be holy, aka set apart. To not conform to the ways of this world. We allow ourselves to conform to the ways of this world by what we allow ourselves to consume. When we sit in front of television, computer or movie screen and allow worldly images, ideas and thoughts to enter into our mind and we don’t have a firm grounding in G-d’s Holy Word, then we tend to slip off into the world. The Lord commands us to be in the world but not of it. How we view sex, our overall world view, how we view politics and hot topic issues like homosexuality, drugs, divination, witchcraft/manipulation/rebellion, sex before marriage, and every other sinful thought and act, determines the type of fruit we bear and if we are truly His.
No, we are not saved by works but faith without works is dead. If you think you are not subject to G-d’s laws, you need to read what Paul and the rest of the Apostles told the Gentile believers after meeting in Jerusalem in Acts. ALL believers are subject to the Noahide laws and that’s something that is true both of Christianity and Judaism. If you violate these laws consistently, then you deceive yourself. In fact, these are the laws that define a civilized nation. Anything else are barbarians and savages and shall not inherit the Kingdom of G-d. That’s what Jesus said. Don’t like it? Then take it up with Him because I don’t care if you don’t agree. You won’t get any sympathy or reconsideration from me for your rebellious ungodly attitude. You might get a swift foot up your butt if you push me. He said turn the other cheek, He did not say how to do so, including a round house kick to your butt.
On the other hand, if you actually accept what the bible says, and claim to be a Christian and actually are a Christian, you probably won’t have any issues following any of these simple, basic and universally common laws that define and set apart Christian and Jew alike from the rest of the world.
- Do not deny G-d.
- Do not blaspheme G-d.
- Do not murder.
- Do not engage in incest, adultery, pederasty or bestiality, as well as homosexual relations.
- Do not steal.
- Do not eat of a live animal.
- Establish courts/legal system to ensure law and obedience.
Number 6 is one some fundamental old school Christians are very familiar with as it is understood not to eat the blood of an animal as the blood is life.
