Continuing this evening, July 14, 2018, Post 3b.
For you see, the hardest thing for anyone to do is to first, realize that they have not the 'truth'. But then, even after this, the second hardest thing to do is - to 'accept' the truth found and to 'change' to 'receive' the 'truth' and to act upon it by changing directions. [Biblically speaking, this is 'repentance', 'first things first'.]
It is scary, even hard to 'change your mind' after years and years of 'thinking' one way. Ask any of the 'behavioral modification' 'so-called' scientists'? What is the impact of 'violent video games' and such on the mind? It 'desensitizes' one to the very violence they are participating in, and 'hardens the heart'. What has occurred with the theory of 'relativism', and 'nothing is right or wrong', but, 'do as is right for you' thinking? Why are we amazed or shocked when we see all the 'shootings' done by individuals who have been under this type of 'teaching'? They are only doing what they have been told is the way to go - 'there is no right nor wrong', do what works for you'. So, it works for them to blow away people who they for whatever reason do not like, or have 'offended' them, in some manner. Why, then, are we surprised???? And, do we even think that 'drugs' or 'more laws', 'change of or in government', or the like will solve the problem?
No. But, what is written? For the answer has been there, all along, for nothing is impossible with God, to wit:
From Jeremiah 17:9, 10: '9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.' And further, with God, all things are possible. [Genesis 17:21; 18:10, 14; Jeremiah 32:17; Matthew 19:16-30; Ephesians 2:1-13; Philippians 2:13 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html]
For you see, the hardest thing for anyone to do is to realize first, that they do not have the 'truth', and second, to 'change' to 'receive and accept' 'the truth'. [Biblically speaking, that is 'repentance', 'first things first'., and it is the work of the Holy Spirit; John 3:1-21; 6:44; 7:35-40; 1 Corinthians 15:50; James 1:21-25]
The one thing that no one can do - It is impossible for man to change his depraved heart, his 'fallen nature'. Be not deceived. Only God can change the deceitful heart. And yet, will we, as a civilization turn to Him???? [Jeremiah 17:9; 29:13; 31:33; Ezekiel 11:19; 18:31; 36:26; Matthew 13:15, 19; 15:8; Mark 7:6; Luke 6:45; 8:12; 16:15; John 3; Acts 28:27; Ephesians 2:1-22; Philippians 2:13; Revelation 3:20-22.]
Come on, now. Be seriously 'truthful' as you see the results of unbridled carnage throughout the world of 'no restraints'. None of us are 'hopelessly blind'. But, many are 'blinded by political correctness', to our own destruction. Oh, God is not mocked. What any of us sow, we shall reap. [Job 4:8; Proverbs 22:8; Jeremiah 12:13; Hosea 8:7; Galatians 6:7] For blessed are the pure in heart [Matthew 5:8] for out of the heart comes evil..[Matthew 15:19; Mark 7:21]
Now, because we are certainly not in a horse race, take your time in the Holy Scriptures, prayerfully, humbly in the Presence of the Lord, that you may ask for and get 'His Wisdom' for a most fruitful life. [James 1:21-25] Then, on July 28, 2018, two new and final posts shall post in furtherance of your 'spiritual well-being'. For at this time, I know some are erroneously thinking that I am 'judging' and not 'being tolerant'. Stay tuned for the final posts that you may better understand - so-called, 'tolerance' versus 'discerning'. All in the Power, Mercy, Grace, and Love of Jesus Christ, as it is written. Amen. Amen.
