An Australian politician was speaking recently and he shared his belief that God would accept things today which were long ago noted as sin when He was writing the Bible through His chosen people.
I was pretty shocked. A politician speaking on God's behalf? Really?! A politician who had changed his stance on critical issues because he needed votes?
When I got over the initial disappointment in this guy I wondered about me, about what areas of my life deny the Word of God?
The world has changed, there's no denying that.
But God has not.
He's the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
So in what ways have I watered down His Word, turned from His precepts, or chosen beliefs which defy His?
I believe we're approaching the last days so it's critical that I get my act together. One day I'll be standing before Jesus and will need to give account for these areas of my earthly life which do not correlate with God's Word and honestly, I'd rather get that all sorted this side of heaven, wouldn't you?
I don't want to stand, like this politician will, and feebly explain to GOD that I knew better and could speak on His behalf.
It's time to be real about truth, and EVERY word of God proves true.
I can't argue with that, and I don't want to.
