Democrats and RINO’s Need To Go

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

Things sure seem like they have gotten bad for Donald Trump. But the resent events only highlight how far the Democrats and RINO’s will go in order to hold onto what power they think they have. Make no mistake about it. Donald Trump’s comments where bad. But what we have is a group of very bad people doing anything they can to stop him from stopping them. His words from ten years ago reflect what kind of a man he may have been ten years ago. But what about the kind of man Bill Clinton was ten or even twenty years ago and beyond. Bill Clinton has been accused of rape and many other crimes against women. While at the same time Hillary Clinton has bashed each of these women and covered for Bill’s bad behavior.

We need to hold her accountable for her actions in causing the deaths of those in Benghazi where 4 Americans lost their lives. The list goes on Here they are: Hillary’s 22 biggest scandals ever  It now includes what we found out to be the funneling of TARP money into the campaigns of many Democrats. Including both Barney Franks and Nancy Pelosi.

This in no way excuses what Trump said. But the liberal news media in trying to brush all of it under the carpet while trying to make sure their corrupt candidate wins. This election will determine the future of America like none before. We have a choice to keep or get rid of these corrupt career politicians who have tried to destroy America. We know who those Democrats are. And we know who those RINO’s are. I have not seen any Republicans on the list of those who have taken TARP money but this is only a partial list and I would not be surprised to see a few on it. Including some of these RINO’s. We all need to pray for Donald Trump. We need to pray that what was exposed is used by God to change him for the better. He has apologized for the stupid insensitive things that he said. Has Hillary or Bill done so. Have any of those who have taken TARP money apologized for stealing from the American people. Has Hillary apologized for getting 4 people killed in Benghazi. Has she or Bill apologized to all of the women who’s lived they both destroyed. No they have not. They have an agenda to rule the world together. Let me remind you of the story of Ahab and Jezebel. 1 Kings 16-21 You can read for yourself and make your own conclusions about how remarkable the comparison is.

1 Kings 16 KJV – Then the word of the LORD came to Jehu – Bible Gateway

 

I can tell you right now that all of our names are written in the Book of Proverbs. Including Donald Trump and Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Your Name Is In the Book of Proverbs | Darwin Is Right

But here is the question. Is their names written in the book of Life? Is yours? God knows the hearts of each and every one of us. As Americans we need to pray that all will come to have their name in the Book of life. But I am sure that by lying, stealing, murdering, and whatever other crimes that people are guilty of, without repentance, their name is not in the Book of Life. And I am sure that everyone’s names are in the Book of Proverbs.

Silence Is Not Always Golden

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

A dear friend of my wife and myself asked me a question at church today about who I was voting for in this election. Upon telling her that I was voting for Donald Trump she said that she had been uncertain about voting for him and stated that there was no way she was voting for Hillary Clinton.  I told her that the best thing that we can do is to pray for him if he becomes president. This is something that seems to be repeated all over the nation. As I was setting in church I was reminded of an article that I read many years ago. The title of this article is, “Just Sing A Little Louder”.  Below is a portion of that article with a link that you can go to and read the rest of it.

JUST SING A LITTLE LOUDER

After a speech, pro-life activist Penny Lea was approached by an old man. Weeping, he told her the following story:

“I lived in Germany during the Nazi holocaust. I considered myself a Christian. I attended church since I was a small boy. We had heard the stories of what was happening to the Jews, but like most people today in this country, we tried to distance ourselves from the reality of what was really taking place. What could anyone do to stop it?

A railroad track ran behind our small church, and each Sunday morning we would hear the whistle from a distance and then the clacking of the wheels moving over the track. We became disturbed when one Sunday we noticed cries coming from the train as it passed by. We grimly realized that the train was carrying Jews. They were like cattle in those cars!

Week after week that train whistle would blow. We would dread to hear the sound of those old wheels because we knew that the Jews would begin to cry out to us as they passed our church. It was so terribly disturbing! We could do nothing to help these poor miserable people, yet their screams tormented us. We knew exactly at what time that whistle would blow, and we decided the only way to keep from being so disturbed by the cries was to start singing our hymns. By the time that train came rumbling past the church yard, we were singing at the top of our voices. If some of the screams reached our ears, we’d just sing a little louder until we could hear them no more. Years have passed and no one talks about it much anymore, but I still hear that train whistle in my sleep. I can still hear them crying out for help. God forgive all of us who called ourselves Christians, yet did nothing to intervene.

“Their screams tormented us . . . If some of their screams reached our ears we’d just sing a little louder.”

Now, so many years later, I see it happening all over again in America. God forgive you as Americans for you have blocked out the screams of millions of your own children. The holocaust is here. The response is the same as it was in my country – SILENCE!”

Have you ever wondered HOW people could have stood by and let the holocaust just happen? Do you wonder why the Christians in this story chose to just sing their praise to God a little louder to drown out the victim’s cries?

The old man’s story is in the past. The past cannot be changed. It is easy to think we would act differently now. But the old man’s last words are haunting “It’s happening all over again in America with abortion. The Holocaust is here.”

As American Christians, we have become so comfortable in our lovely buildings and padded pews. We have beautiful fellowship halls for our many banquets. We have the latest sound equipment for our praise and worship. We have computers to keep our records. We gather together each week and shut ourselves inside our buildings. We raise our voices as loud as we can, all in the name of God.

 

This article hits home in so many ways. It speaks of those so called Christians who were sitting in their pews while the nation as a whole where imprisoning and murders Jews and others who dared to speak out against an out of control government. It speaks of a government that was using these same people as an excuse for all of the problems that where taking place in its country. This was a government that refused to take responsibility for its own corruption. There are so many ways that Germany was just like America today.  After the defeat of Germany people and nations said that this would never happen again. But this has been said before. And it has. Nation after nation throughout history has fallen because of the corruption of its leaders. These nations went through the process of becoming a nation and then through the process of collapse because its leaders where corrupt and ungodly people. Instead of seeking the wisdom of God they sought their own wisdom that failed them.

America was established has a nation that stood up against that corruption and one who sought to put God above all else. But what is happening today is history repeating itself all over again. 2 Timothy tells us that there will come a time when this corruption will spread throughout the entire world. and Isaiah 5 tells us that those that are corrupt will seek to justify their actions by calling good evil and evil good.

2 Timothy 3:1-17 (NKJV)

Perilous Times and Perilous Men

3 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith; but they will progress no further, for their folly will be manifest to all, as theirs also was.

The Man of God and the Word of God

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Isaiah 5:20-30 (NKJV)

20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!

22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine,
Woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink,
23 Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away justice from the righteous man!

24 Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble,
And the flame consumes the chaff,
So their root will be as rottenness,
And their blossom will ascend like dust;
Because they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,
And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
25 Therefore the anger of the Lord is aroused against His people;
He has stretched out His hand against them
And stricken them,
And the hills trembled.
Their carcasses were as refuse in the midst of the streets.

For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still.

26 He will lift up a banner to the nations from afar,
And will whistle to them from the end of the earth;
Surely they shall come with speed, swiftly.
27 No one will be weary or stumble among them,
No one will slumber or sleep;
Nor will the belt on their loins be loosed,
Nor the strap of their sandals be broken;
28 Whose arrows are sharp,
And all their bows bent;
Their horses’ hooves will seem like flint,
And their wheels like a whirlwind.
29 Their roaring will be like a lion,
They will roar like young lions;
Yes, they will roar
And lay hold of the prey;
They will carry it away safely,
And no one will deliver.
30 In that day they will roar against them
Like the roaring of the sea.
And if one looks to the land,
Behold, darkness and sorrow;
And the light is darkened by the clouds.

The entire Book of Proverbs talks about this corruption and what happens to those who ignore Gods warnings. Many have died over the centuries because of those who were corrupt and many are still dying even today because of those who are seeking that ultimate power. We see that today many in America have joined forces to obtain that power. And even those who are charged with sounding the alarm about those that are doing this have joined with them. The press in America has become just as corrupt as those in power. And have turned their backs on the American people. Those that are charged with prosecuting those who have abused their power have also become just as corrupt. And they too have failed the American people. But the worst problem of all is the silence of so many people in America. What happened in Germany began with the people keeping silent about what was going on. By the time they realized what was happening the Nazi Party was able to instill fear in an entire nation to keep people silent. The nation as a whole walked around putting blinders on so that they did not have to listen to the screams of them millions that where suffering because of that corrupt nation. As the article Just Sing Louder stated there where so many who put on these blinders and stood by while those atrocities happened. Many professed to be Christians but they were more afraid of man than they were of God. They forgot the promises of God.

Psalm 40 (NKJV)

Faith Persevering in Trial

40 I waited patiently for the Lord;
And He inclined to me,
And heard my cry.
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit,
Out of the miry clay,
And set my feet upon a rock,
And established my steps.
He has put a new song in my mouth—
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the Lord.

Blessed is that man who makes the Lord his trust,
And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Many, O Lord my God, are Your wonderful works
Which You have done;
And Your thoughts toward us
Cannot be recounted to You in order;
If I would declare and speak of them,
They are more than can be numbered.

Sacrifice and offering You did not desire;
My ears You have opened.
Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.
Then I said, “Behold, I come;
In the scroll of the book it is written of me.
I delight to do Your will, O my God,
And Your law is within my heart.”

I have proclaimed the good news of righteousness
In the great assembly;
Indeed, I do not restrain my lips,
O Lord, You Yourself know.
10 I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart;
I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation;
I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth
From the great assembly.

11 Do not withhold Your tender mercies from me, O Lord;
Let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.
12 For innumerable evils have surrounded me;
My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up;
They are more than the hairs of my head;
Therefore my heart fails me.

13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me;
O Lord, make haste to help me!
14 Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual confusion
Who seek to destroy my life;
Let them be driven backward and brought to dishonor
Who wish me evil.
15 Let them be confounded because of their shame,
Who say to me, “Aha, aha!”

16 Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
Let such as love Your salvation say continually,
“The Lord be magnified!”
17 But I am poor and needy;
Yet the Lord thinks upon me.
You are my help and my deliverer;
Do not delay, O my God.

 

They just remained silent while Germany was butchering those who would not fall in line with its policies. Today we have politicians who think that they have gotten away with their corruption. And those that have provided cover for them think that they have done nothing wrong. But as God has promised! He is the one who sees all that they do. And he is the one who holds them accountable for their actions.

 

Psalm 54 (NKJV)

54 Save me, O God, by Your name,
And vindicate me by Your strength.
Hear my prayer, O God;
Give ear to the words of my mouth.
For strangers have risen up against me,
And oppressors have sought after my life;
They have not set God before them. Selah

Behold, God is my helper;
The Lord is with those who uphold my life.
He will repay my enemies for their evil.
Cut them off in Your truth.

I will freely sacrifice to You;
I will praise Your name, O Lord, for it is good.
For He has delivered me out of all trouble;
And my eye has seen its desire upon my enemies.

Those Charged With Protecting America Have Become A Disgrace

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

Definition of disgrace

1. the loss of respect, honor, or esteem; ignominy; shame:the disgrace of criminals.

2. a person, act, or thing that causes shame, reproach, or dishonor or is dishonorable or shameful.

3. the state of being out of favor; exclusion from favor, confidence, or trust:courtiers and ministers in disgrace.verb (used with object), disgraced, disgracing.

4. to bring or reflect shame or reproach upon:to be disgraced by cowardice.

5.to dismiss with discredit; put out of grace or favor; rebuke or humiliate:to be disgraced at court.

 
This definition now includes our leaders as well as the majority of those in the press who have been charged with watching them and reporting on their corruption. It also includes those who should be prosecuting those involved in corruption. The law is very clear. Yet the double standard now employed by the American press has shown that they are no longer interested in reporting the truth. They, as well as the FBI, have joined forces with these corrupt politicians. They know it. And most of the American people know it. They have now openly flaunted it in front of the American people and expect that they will get away with it.

But no matter what they think! Judgement day is coming. We will all stand before God and at that point there will be no lawyers there to spin the truth. Our lives will be played back before us an the verdict will be rendered. Those who have been charged with protecting and reporting the truth have failed the American people and are no less guilty of corruption than those leaders who have sold out to this corruption.

America’s Epic Failure

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

What we are witnessing today with the failure of the leaders in America to protect the American people from the cronyism that has taken place is completely unprecedented. Not only have they failed to protect the American people, they have themselves participated in this cronyism. But what is even more horrific is that the American press is participating in this cronyism. Never before was this more evident than during the presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. As America watched the debates they saw Lester Holt running interference for Hillary Clinton. During the debate this form of cronyism was the worst form of treason that a free press could inflict on the American people. This is socialism at its worst. The history of what happened in Germany tells us exactly where we are headed if this is not stopped. Millions and millions of people died at the hands of a political group that sought ultimate power. Those that stood in their way were destined to be executed by those who used their power to destroy anyone who would stand against them. The press was used as a tool to spread their propaganda and to justify their actions, I have stated multiple times that America is becoming a Proverbs 1 nation.

Proverbs 1New King James Version (NKJV)

The Beginning of Knowledge

1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
To give prudence to the simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Shun Evil Counsel

My son, hear the instruction of your father,
And do not forsake the law of your mother;
For they will be a graceful ornament on your head,
And chains about your neck.

10 My son, if sinners entice you,
Do not consent.
11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait to shed blood;
Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,
And whole, like those who go down to the Pit;
13 We shall find all kinds of precious possessions,
We shall fill our houses with spoil;
14 Cast in your lot among us,
Let us all have one purse”—
15 My son, do not walk in the way with them,
Keep your foot from their path;
16 For their feet run to evil,
And they make haste to shed blood.
17 Surely, in vain the net is spread
In the sight of any bird;
18 But they lie in wait for their own blood,
They lurk secretly for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners.

The Call of Wisdom

20 Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
21 She cries out in the chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
22 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
23 Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.

28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”

The first few verses talks about obtaining wisdom and understanding. But the last few verses talk about what happens when we fail to take hold of that wisdom and understanding. It tells us that those who do evil will seek to join forces to justify their actions. And we are clearly seeing this happen before our eyes today. Those that we have entrusted to help keep our leaders in check have joined our leaders in their corruption. They have been called to be watchmen against such corruption but have instead decided to join in on the dividing up of the spoils that our leaders have taken hold of. Often at the expense of someone’s life. But as Proverbs 1:18-19 says

18 But they lie in wait for their own blood,
They lurk secretly for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners.

Verse 22 tells us that fools hate knowledge.

22 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.

 

And verse 32 states that the complacency of fools will destroy them.

32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;

 

Those who have joined together in this folly will meet an end that is promised them by Gods word.

Psalm 1:6 (NKJV)

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

This will be an eternity of compete separation from God and an eternity with the master that they are serving now. Those leaders that have betrayed those that they have sworn to serve will in the end find out that they have served the wrong master. And those that have joined them in their folly will join them in their reward. They will have no possessions and no power that they will take with them. Only the pain and suffering that has been promised to anyone who refuses to believe Gods word. They will also have a realization that they chose to throw away an eternity with God who has reached out to them many times to call them to repentance. Wisdom has called out to them but they have refused to listen. Just like those in history who have done the same thing. We are told that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Our leaders are repeating the same history and thinking that there will be a different result. But unfortunately it will meet with the same end. That is a promise from God. And that is something that everyone will eventually come face to face with if they head down that same path. But the point of this article is two fold. The failure of America’s leaders to live by the oath of their office. And the failure of those who chose a profession in which truth should be their highest standard. It is very clear that the press has failed to live up to this standard.

There is one other failure that we need to speak of here. It is the failure of the American people to hold both our leaders and those in the press to that higher standard. We as Americans have failed to do so because we ourselves do not want to be held to a higher standard. If we expect to survive as a nation that is the first step that needs to be taken. God gave us the Ten Commandments to live by. But because he knew that we would fail to live up to those standards he simplified them through Christ.

Matthew 22:37-40 (NKJV)

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

If we cannot even live by these simplified words then, as a nation, America will deserve whomever God turns us over to. And once again those leaders will be able to manipulate a press that has decided to serve the wrong master. In closing out this article I want to ask America a question. It is a question that I asked in an earlier article. Who’s Army Are You Marching In ? Make no mistake about it! We are all marching in one of two armies. We are either marching in Gods army. Or we are marching in Satan’s army. There is no in between. Jesus made that very clear.

 

Revelation 3New King James Version (NKJV)

14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,

‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

 

Matthew 25:31-46 (NKJV)

The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations

31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

44 “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ 45 Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”

Satan Rallies His Troops

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

With the events of the world unfolding before us what we are seeing is the disintegration of morality. I have talked about the Book of Proverbs over and over again and the more I see the more it is proved right. There is a line that has been blurred by those who have sought to take advantage of the unrest that is going on in the world. We have politicians who have used divisive for the sole purpose of keeping the eyes of the people off of the corrupt and immoral thing that they are doing. So here we are once again with the rioting that is taking place in North Carolina with our leaders not standing up to stop this from happening. The reason is that this fits there narrative of keeping people divided so they can stay in power. And once again Proverbs 1 Stands out with people joining together to justify their bad behavior.

Proverbs 1 (NKJV)

The Beginning of Knowledge

1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:

To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
To receive the instruction of wisdom,

To the young man knowledge and discretion—
A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their riddles.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.

For they will be a graceful ornament on your head,
And chains about your neck.

10 My son, if sinners entice you,

11 If they say, “Come with us,
Let us lie in wait to shed blood;
Let us lurk secretly for the innocent without cause;
12 Let us swallow them alive like Sheol,

17 Surely, in vain the net is spread

18 But they lie in wait for their own blood,

19 So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain;
It takes away the life of its owners.

The Call of Wisdom

20 Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares.
21 She cries out in the chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words:
22 “How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
23 Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.

28 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
29 Because they hated knowledge
And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
31 Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
32 For the turning away of the simple will slay them,
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”

What we must realize here is that those who would take advantage of these situations are only interested in gaining more power and they do not care about those who have been hurt by these events. Nor do they care about anyone of these people that have been involved in causing these riots. So the questions know is! How close are we to the end of America? If these evil people are able to gain the power that they are seeking then Satan will have accomplished in destroying the lines of even more countless people. In the end Christ will prevail and those who have given their lives to him will have heeded the call for wisdom that is in Proverbs. But those who completely ignore that call will spend and eternity with that master that they have chosen to serve.

The Harlots Destruction

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

From the beginning God has intended for the relationship between a man and a woman to be sacred. But because of the fall of man that relationship has been perverted. And the further man walks away from God the more perverted it gets. Romans 1 tells us exactly what happens when it gets to the point where God hands us over to our own lust.

Romans 1 (NKJV)

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

And in Judges 16 we see just how Samson was brought to his death by his lust for Delilah.

Judges 16 (NKJV)

16 Now Samson went to Gaza and saw a harlot there, and went in to her. When the Gazites were told, “Samson has come here!” they surrounded the place and lay in wait for him all night at the gate of the city. They were quiet all night, saying, “In the morning, when it is daylight, we will kill him.” And Samson lay low till midnight; then he arose at midnight, took hold of the doors of the gate of the city and the two gateposts, pulled them up, bar and all, put them on his shoulders, and carried them to the top of the hill that faces Hebron. Afterward it happened that he loved a woman in the Valley of Sorek, whose name was Delilah. And the lords of the Philistines came up to her and said to her, “Entice him, and find out where his great strength lies, and by what means we may overpower him, that we may bind him to afflict him; and every one of us will give you eleven hundred pieces of silver. ”So Delilah said to Samson, “Please tell me where your great strength lies, and with what you may be bound to afflict you.” And Samson said to her, “If they bind me with seven fresh bowstrings, not yet dried, then I shall become weak, and be like any other man.”

So the lords of the Philistines brought up to her seven fresh bowstrings, not yet dried, and she bound him with them. Now men were lying in wait, staying with her in the room. And she said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” But he broke the bowstrings as a strand of yarn breaks when it touches fire. So the secret of his strength was not known. 10 Then Delilah said to Samson, “Look, you have mocked me and told me lies. Now, please tell me what you may be bound with.” 11 So he said to her, “If they bind me securely with new ropes that have never been used, then I shall become weak, and be like any other man.”

12 Therefore Delilah took new ropes and bound him with them, and said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” And men were lying in wait, staying in the room. But he broke them off his arms like a thread. 13 Delilah said to Samson, “Until now you have mocked me and told me lies. Tell me what you may be bound with.” And he said to her, “If you weave the seven locks of my head into the web of the loom”— 14 So she wove it tightly with the batten of the loom, and said to him, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” But he awoke from his sleep, and pulled out the batten and the web from the loom. 15 Then she said to him, “How can you say, ‘I love you,’ when your heart is not with me? You have mocked me these three times, and have not told me where your great strength lies.” 16 And it came to pass, when she pestered him daily with her words and pressed him, so that his soul was vexed to death, 17 that he told her all his heart, and said to her, “No razor has ever come upon my head, for I have been a Nazirite to God from my mother’s womb. If I am shaven, then my strength will leave me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man.”

18 When Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, “Come up once more, for he has told me all his heart.” So the lords of the Philistines came up to her and brought the money in their hand. 19 Then she lulled him to sleep on her knees, and called for a man and had him shave off the seven locks of his head. Then she began to torment him,[a] and his strength left him. 20 And she said, “The Philistines are upon you, Samson!” So he awoke from his sleep, and said, “I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!” But he did not know that the Lord had departed from him. 21 Then the Philistines took him and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza. They bound him with bronze fetters, and he became a grinder in the prison. 22 However, the hair of his head began to grow again after it had been shaven.

23 Now the lords of the Philistines gathered together to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice. And they said: “Our god has delivered into our hands
Samson our enemy!” 24 When the people saw him, they praised their god; for they said:

“Our god has delivered into our hands our enemy, The destroyer of our land,
And the one who multiplied our dead.”

25 So it happened, when their hearts were merry, that they said, “Call for Samson, that he may perform for us.” So they called for Samson from the prison, and he performed for them. And they stationed him between the pillars. 26 Then Samson said to the lad who held him by the hand, “Let me feel the pillars which support the temple, so that I can lean on them.” 27 Now the temple was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there—about three thousand men and women on the roof watching while Samson performed. 28 Then Samson called to the Lord, saying, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!” 29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars which supported the temple, and he braced himself against them, one on his right and the other on his left. 30 Then Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead that he killed at his death were more than he had killed in his life. 31 And his brothers and all his father’s household came down and took him, and brought him up and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the tomb of his father Manoah. He had judged Israel twenty years.

 

Sexual sins are one of the most used weapons that Satan comes at us with. We are told that we are to present our bodies to God as a living and holy sacrifice. But instead of keeping our eyes on God we start looking at the world instead.

Romans 12 (NKJV)

12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

That last statement bears repeating! Instead of keeping our eyes on God we start looking at the world instead. And instead of running from the temptations that Satan is tempting us with, we take hold of them. Satan can never force us to do so. But that is part of his lies. God has given us the weapons to be able to deal with sin. One of those weapons is his word.

Ephesians 6:10-18 (NKJV)

The Whole Armor of God

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

It is through the learning and use of his word that we gain the strength to be able to resist the temptations that Satan keeps throwing at us. Unfortunately there are so many people that continue to allow themselves to be placed into bondage. We become snared by these temptations because we do not spend the time needed to prepare for the battles that we face in our walk with God. We need to understand that the time needed to prepare for these battles is before the battle. Not during the battle. God has come to the rescue several times but we will never be able to accomplish what God wants for us if we never prepare ourselves for what he has planned for us. Satan knows this. He knows the weaknesses that can be exploited. And there are many. There are reasons that he is able to exploit and use the sin of harlotry to destroy peoples live. He has taken most sacred thing that God has given us and twisted it into something perverted.

It is through that relationship between a man and woman that God chose to populate the world. It is through that relationship that God chose to expand his kingdom and bring them into a relationship with him. But because Satan was able to tempt Eve into taking her eyes off of God and put them on her own selfish desires, he has a tool the he can use to exploit with. Many have fallen because of this. Including many who were otherwise godly men. But these godly men failed to hold on to the tools that God had given them to fight those battles that Satan came at them with. Without taking hold of God’s word and learning how to use it to fight those battles with many men and women have fallen and been taken captive. We are warned many times of the reward of sin. Especially in proverbs!

Proverbs 7 (NKJV)

21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield,
With her flattering lips she seduced him.
22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter,
Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks,
23 Till an arrow struck his liver.
As a bird hastens to the snare,
He did not know it would cost his life.

24 Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
26 For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
27 Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.

 Throughout the last few chapters of Proverbs God has brought to the forefront just how important the relationship between a husband and wife are. The world has distorted this relationship but nothing has changed with God. There will be a day of reckoning coming for those that have distorted what God has created. Many choose not to believe what he has to say about such relationships but that is a choice that they have made. Any arguments that they may have will be futile because just like it says in Proverbs 1:24-33 wisdom has called out to them and they refuse to heed its call.

24 Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
25 Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
27 When your terror comes like a storm,

 

Proverbs Chapter 7 Explained

 Proverbs 7 NKJV – My son, keep my words, And treasure my – Bible Gateway

Proverbs 7:1 “My son, keep my words, and lay up my commandments with thee.”

Again, we see here the father’s love for the son in teaching him the ways of righteousness. It is just as important to remember them as it is to learn them. Learning what we never use is of no use to us. Learning of commandments that keep us out of trouble will also save our life.

Proverbs 7:2 “Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.”

This expression refers to the pupil of the eye which, because it is the source of sight, is carefully protected. The son is to guard and protect his father’s teachings because they give him spiritual and moral sight.

Proverbs 7:3 “Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.”

This is a call to give the truth of divine wisdom a permanent place in the mind and in conduct.

In Israel, it is not uncommon to write the Ten Commandments on tablets and wear them like rings on their fingers. The tables of our heart are the very place for all of God’s laws to be. The world might do away with our Bibles, but they could not do away with the things we have hidden in our heart.

Proverbs 7:4 “Say unto wisdom, Thou [art] my sister; and call understanding [thy] kinswoman:”

Wisdom should become part of our very being. We have said before that wisdom is a gift of God to us and is in our inner most being. Understanding and wisdom go hand in hand.  If we are wise, we have understanding.

Proverbs 7:5 “That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger [which] flattereth with her words.”

This is a repeat of what we have been reading about the whorish woman. Perhaps the reason this is mentioned so many times is so that the young men will clearly remember these instructions.

Proverbs 7:6 “For at the window of my house I looked through my casement,”

The drama of seduction by the adulteress, introduced in v.5 and unfolding to v.23, is described from the viewpoint on one who is watching from his window.

Proverbs 7:7 “And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding,”

As we read in chapter 1 verse 4 “To give prudence to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion”. The purpose is to impart discernment to the naïve and the ignorant. The root of “simple” is a word meaning “an open door,” an apt description of the undiscerning, who do not know what to keep in or out of their minds. This describes this young man void of understanding.

Proverbs 7:8 “Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house,” Proverbs 7:9 “In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night:”

We see a picture here of someone observing from their window a young man who is not filled with the wisdom that we have been reading about, but a man who has no wisdom and understanding. He is a foolish man, spoken of as a simple man here (perhaps unlearned). He has not heeded the warnings about the harlot woman and he goes into her house.

Against the advice of 4:14-15, he put himself right in the harlot’s place. “Fleeing immorality” (1Cor. 6;18) starts by not being in the harlot’s neighborhood at night.

Notice he believes that he is hidden by the darkness of the night. Many sins are committed in the dark and regretted in the light.

Proverbs 7:10 “And, behold, there met him a woman [with] the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart.”

This is an unfair contest between the simple young man, who lacks wisdom and is void of the truth, and the evil woman, who knows her goal, but hides her true intentions.

You ladies take note. There is a way to dress that would appear to be the dress of a harlot. This Scripture does not describe it for us, but most of us know what it looks like. It is way too short, and very tight so that her form would show. The neck would be cut low as to show her bosom. Very little would be left to the imagination. She would be wearing way too much makeup and have flashy jewelry hanging all over her. A pretty good description, wouldn’t you say? 

Now let us stop looking at her attire and look at her.

Proverbs 7:11 “(She [is] loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house:” Proverbs 7:12 “Now [is she] without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.)”

She makes much noise to be seen and heard. She may be married but “her feet” does not abide in her own house.

In other words she is a pick-up off the street.

These verses break the narrative to describe the woman’s modes of operation leading to her successful seduction of the simple man.

Proverbs 7:13 “So she caught him, and kissed him, [and] with an impudent face said unto him,”

We see here a very forward woman. This open display of her lust for him in kissing him in public is revolting.

Proverbs 7:14 “[I have] peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows.” 

These peace offerings should not be involved in this type of rendezvous. Peace offerings were offered in the temple and a portion brought home to eat in a ceremonial supper, but not used as a bribe to get a man.

According to the law of peace offerings, the meat left over after the sacrifice was to be eaten before the end of the day. She appears very religious in making the invitation that the man join her because she had made her offering and is bringing home the meat that must be eaten.

Proverbs 7:15 “Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee.”

It is already night and the meal must be consumed. It cannot be left for morning. Such hypocrisy is concerned about the ceremonial law while aggressively seducing someone to violate God’s moral law.

Proverbs 7:16 “I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved [works], with fine linen of Egypt.”  Proverbs 7:17 “I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.”

Fine linen was a sign of wealth. Here the solicitation is direct, as she describes the comfort of her bed with its aromatic spices.

Proverbs 7:18 “Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves.”

We see here a woman who planned ahead to sin. She had already prepared her bed before she ever saw this young foolish man. This is a way of life with her. Her sleeping arrangements would have cost her a lot of money to prepare. This linen of Egypt symbolizes righteousness of the world which is filthy rags. Linen = righteousness. Egypt = world. This myrrh was expensive perfume which was ordinarily for the wedding bed.

Adultery is not true love, but mere physical gratification. Love and lust have been exchanged here. No love exists, this is pure lust. The first thing that is wrong with this is that they are not married to each other.

Proverbs 7:19 “For the goodman [is] not at home, he is gone a long journey:” Proverbs 7:20 “He hath taken a bag of money with him, [and] will come home at the day appointed.” 

Here she gives the simple man the assurance that there is no fear of discovery of their act, since her husband has taken a large sum of cash, needed because he will be away for a long time, returning at a set time and not before.

Proverbs 7:21 “With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him.”

In a previous lesson, the young men were warned about not listening to this kind of woman with her flattering lips. Now we see in detail how she flatters and then convinces this foolish young man to come in unto her.  She first says, “I am here by myself; my husband has gone and won’t be back till he spends all of that money he took with him”. He finally gives in to her flattering and goes in unto her.

When the location, time and setting were allowed, the seduction was easy.

Proverbs 7:22 “He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks;”

An ox has no idea that he is going to be killed, until it actually happens. This is the way of this foolish man here. He cannot see the destruction that lies ahead.

Ignorant of the real danger and incapable of resistance, he quickly succumbs like a beast to be butchered or a criminal put in stocks.

Proverbs 7:23 “Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it [is] for his life.”

This has been the plot all along, to lure him as a bird is lured into a net and then killed. All the while he has no idea of the plot to kill him.

This refers to a mortal wound, as the liver represents the seat of life and the bird is snared to be eaten.

Proverbs 7:24 “Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.”

Here, again, is a warning not to go in unto a harlot.

The appropriate application of this drama is made in the admonition of these verses to avoid her deadly seduction.

Proverbs 7:25 “Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths.”

A wise heart would not fall into this trap. This is just a warning to stay away from this evil woman. You would have to decline to get to her, for her place is in hell.

Proverbs 7:26 “For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong [men] have been slain by her.”

It is not just the weak men who fall, but strong men in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong thoughts for the wrong reasons.

Paid adulteresses have ruined many lives. There are many men whose lives have been totally destroyed by visiting this type woman.

Proverbs 7:27 “Her house [is] the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.”

There is no heavenly home for these women or the men they trick unless they repent and turn from their wicked ways. Death and destruction await her and her victims.

The wicked devise a plot of deception in which the innocent are captured and victimized like the one who is taken by death itself. “Sheol” is the place of death. For the wicked it is a place of no return, darkness, and torment.

Proverbs 7 (NKJV)

7 My son, keep my words,
And treasure my commands within you.
Keep my commands and live,
And my law as the apple of your eye.
Bind them on your fingers;
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,”
And call understanding your nearest kin,
That they may keep you from the immoral woman,
From the seductress who flatters with her words.

The Crafty Harlot

For at the window of my house
I looked through my lattice,
And saw among the simple,
I perceived among the youths,
A young man devoid of understanding,
Passing along the street near her corner;
And he took the path to her house
In the twilight, in the evening,
In the black and dark night.

10 And there a woman met him,
With the attire of a harlot, and a crafty heart.
11 She was loud and rebellious,
Her feet would not stay at home.
12 At times she was outside, at times in the open square,
Lurking at every corner.
13 So she caught him and kissed him;
With an impudent face she said to him:
14 “I have peace offerings with me;
Today I have paid my vows.
15 So I came out to meet you,
Diligently to seek your face,
And I have found you.
16 I have spread my bed with tapestry,
Colored coverings of Egyptian linen.
17 I have perfumed my bed
With myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.
18 Come, let us take our fill of love until morning;
Let us delight ourselves with love.
19 For my husband is not at home;
He has gone on a long journey;
20 He has taken a bag of money with him,
And will come home on the appointed day.”

21 With her enticing speech she caused him to yield,
With her flattering lips she seduced him.
22 Immediately he went after her, as an ox goes to the slaughter,
Or as a fool to the correction of the stocks,
23 Till an arrow struck his liver.
As a bird hastens to the snare,
He did not know it would cost his life.

24 Now therefore, listen to me, my children;
Pay attention to the words of my mouth:
25 Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways,
Do not stray into her paths;
26 For she has cast down many wounded,
And all who were slain by her were strong men.
27 Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.

Deplorable

People Who Justify Bad Behavior_1

Hillary Clinton’s statements about those who vote for Donald Trump are about as condescending and racist as it gets for any politician. But that being said! Anyone not walking around with blinders on, like the socialist network news media, has known that this is and has been her true feelings about anyone who does not fall in line with the policy of the Democratic party. Those who have read the book, KILLER ANGEL, by George Grant or the book, THE INHERENT RACISM OF POPULATION CONTROL – Inherentracism.pdf, know that the Democratic Party has wrapped its arms around racism. So the elitist attitude by Hillary Clinton should not surprise anyone. Her speech about the basket of deplorable that vote for Donald Trumps was not the most deplorable thing that happened. The most deplorable thing that happened was all the elitist that where setting at that fundraiser cheering her on. This says one thing about this group of people as a whole. Proverbs 1 is right.  It is right not only about the politicians that I wrote about in my article, The Proverbs 1 Politician | Darwin Is Right, but it is right about everyone who follows in the footsteps of anyone who has taken a stand against God. My article about everyone having their name in the Book of Proverbs, Your Name Is In the Book of Proverbs | Darwin Is Right, puts those who attended this fundraiser into a new prospective. Below are links to some articles that I posted on a blog a few years ago that was just made relevant by Hillary and her co-conspirators of elitist.

Darwin Is Right: The Arrogant Liberal

Darwin Is Right: Fools of Hollywood

Darwin Is Right: Fools of Hollywood Part 2

I would encourage you to read these articles and I challenge you to let me know if anything has changed except that it has gotten worse and that these policies of the Left have gotten more brazen. And then take another look at the Book of Proverbs. Read it and see if you can find your name in it. Your Name Is In the Book of Proverbs | Darwin Is Right Read it and see if you notice the arrogance of those that have thumbed their nose at God and challenged him. And they have challenged him. But that is a challenge that will spend an eternity regretting. As it says in Romans 1, Gods wrath is revealed against all who are unrighteous. That means that even those that follow those who are practice evil are held responsible for there folly.

Romans 1 (NKJV)

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
