Big eyes or small, short or tall, skinny or fat, dark skin or light, who can decide all these things for themselves? Born into wealth or born in poverty are things none of us get to choose. Where were you born? What is your family heritage and what are the circumstances surrounding your birth? Our nationality or our appearance were not things we each carefully decided or had anything to do with.
It is a fool who says otherwise and yet our so-called educated elites spew out this kind of nonsense as though these should decide anything of value. The reason is to keep us divided, confused, and focusing on the lie and not the truth.
As if this were not enough, they now attach things we can choose to do or not as though these are non-choices and somehow we are born this way or that. So you mean to say that a murderer is not responsible for a crime? What if they murder someone you love? A drunk driver who gets behind a wheel and kills someone cannot be held responsible because after all, he or she has a disease and they are the victim?
Satan has been working to flip reality upside-down since the garden when he deceived Eve into thinking what God has said was not the truth. That did not work out so well, did it? Today, culture is accepting wicked ideology which brings heartache, injustice, and oppression.
But God has not given His church bandaids to hand out to the lost world. He has given us the gospel which is the cure. To our sinful choices, we are each responsible and guilty before a Holy and Just God. For our ethnicity, our birth parents, and family history, we are all innocent.
“…26From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their lands.27God intended that they would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.28‘For in Him we live and move and have our being.”
Because Satan is a liar, murderer, and deceiver, he wants us to feel guilty and become divided over things we cannot control while at the same time justifying things he knows we choose to do and are sinful. To confuse and mislead the world is easy for Satan given that we are all by nature sinners.
…12even the darkness is not dark to You, but the night shines like the day, for darkness is as light to You.13For You formed my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.14I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this very well.…
What is most disturbing and shocking is when true believers set aside the word of God and accept the foolish and corrupt ideology of man. Ignoring plain truth simple enough for a child yet profound enough to govern all of society, we choose to accept whatever the culture wants us to.
God determined your birthday, your skin color, your place of birth, and your parents. Because of this, you owe no one an apology, not even God. The same God is the lawgiver who has declared right and wrong, good and evil and we are individually accountable to each other and ultimately to Him.
Just as bad as false guilt is the idea that none of us should ever feel guilty about anything and that we are not accountable for our thoughts, decisions, or actions. This too is foolishness and rebellion against God. The law that God has given shows us our guilt. This guilt is crucial for repentance and therefore necessary.
19Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.20Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
In man’s desperation to remove any guilt and the consequences of it, he has created massive lies in order to achieve this. From atheism to evolution the push to silence God is evident. If the God of the bible doesn`t exist then the law doesn’t exist therefore we are free to do as we please without guilt or consequences.
Not only is this foolish but carries with it eternal consequences for all who accept and live by the idea that we are innocent, sinless animals accountable to no one for anything. The same people advocating this claim that no one times nothing equals everything.
So, never feel guilty about the things for which we all have had no influence, and take responsibility for the guilt which squarely rests on our shoulders. Allow genuine guilt to bring you to the saving grace of Jesus Christ who died for our sins and took our guilt upon Himself to redeem us.
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
