Society Says vs God Says

I’ve said this before and I will say it again, everything socially acceptable is not always morally permissible. I’m going to give you a series of examples of the distinctions between the Word of God and what is going on around all of us…

Society says, “I can date 20 people and be sexually intimate with them, live with them, and do whatever with them before marriage.”
God says, “Sex before marriage is fornication, which is a sin against your own body and has grave consequences.” (1 Corinthians 6:18; 1 Corinthians 7:2)

Society says, “Sex sells so let’s advertise products using half-naked women everywhere.”
God says, “Women ought to dress modestly.” (1 Timothy 2:9-10)

Society says, “We can lust after and look on people because it’s only looking; as long as you don’t act on it you’re fine.”
God says, “If you look on someone with lust you commit adultery in your heart. Pluck out your eye if it offends you and cut off your arm if it offends you (Go to extremes to separate yourself from sin).” (Matthew 5:28-30)

Society says, “I can be sexually intimate with who or whatever I want (e.g., same sex or animal).”
God says, “Lay not with animal kind or mankind as yourself these are abominations.” (Leviticus 18:22-23)

Society says, “Everyone drinks, smokes, and does drugs. It’s the norm and it’s okay.”
God says, “Don’t you know that your body is the temple of God? Therefore don’t defile it. Do not use your members as instruments of unrighteousness.” (1 Corinthians 6:18; Romans 6:13)

Society says, “Jay-z is hova and Kanye is yeezus.”
God says, “Have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3)

Society says, “There is no God. We all came to existence at random and our great grandparents are monkeys.”
God says, “Creation affirms that I am God, so even if you don’t see me, during judgment, you have no excuse. Also, you were created special to have dominion over all animals and all the earth. You are distinct from every single creation.” (Romans 1:20; Genesis 1:26)

Society says, “I can just remember John 3:16, believe in Jesus, do what I want, and His grace will cover me.”
God says, “Depart for me you that work iniquity, I never knew you. You draw near to me with your mouth and honor me with your lips but your heart is far from me.” (Matthew 7:21-23; Matthew 15:8)

Society says, “I have to do all that I can because YOLO!”
God says, “You live now and then die… But I have eternal life prepared for those who love me and eternal torment prepared for those who despised me and did contrary to my ways.” (Hebrews 9:27-28; Revelation 21:8)

This list could literally go on and on…..Let us not let society and what everyone else is doing shape who we are. Let us seek to uphold the standard of morality that God has always intended for us.

Fall in love with Jesus, He will save you from yourself!
