What Bliss My Philosophy Is!
May 20, 2014
It is very alarming to see those who once professed Christ, His Gospel, and His ways, as the only Way, Truth, and Life, to be apostatizing to falsehoods and rebellion, doing so against God’s clear directives and doctrine found in His Word. Rather than believing the Eternal and tested Word of God, they believe philosophies of men! Rather than testing what they hear against what the Scriptures say, they test what they hear against their sinful desires!
“Oh, that sounds goooood!” they croon. “I can live by this philosophy. It tells me I can be myself and still be soooooo at peace with Jesus. Ahhh…. Finally I can rest from all the striving to be good. What bliss…” And off they fall –heavily into the arms of their god of sensuality, their god that encourages them to find pleasure in their senses –regardless of the fall-out. Regardless of the fact that it reaps for them eternal torment in the end.
Israeliteindeed has written a sobering exhortation today. Below is an excerpt, and the whole post can be read here: http://israeliteindeed.wordpress.com/2014/05/20/the-treachery-of-unbelief/
No matter what a person claims, God’s Word says that God is not at peace with those who continue in their sin. (Rom. 8:6-8 // Gal. 6:7,8 // Eph. 5:6) In fact, they will be damned. (Heb. 10:26-31) What foolishness it is to make up one’s own “truth” and mock the Eternal God.
