Many of us have a clear understanding of right & wrong. Many of us understand that when we do or say something, whether right or wrong, it affects our lives in either a positive or negative way. Some of our decisions & actions cause an obvious backlash that we knew or didn't know would happen as a result of said decisions & actions.
But there are many decisions & actions that the consequences of are much more subtle or delayed. We may blame them on other people or things totally unrelated to the real reason. In a perfect world negative backlashes would come from saying or doing something wrong almost immediately which would make it very easy to know right from wrong.
As we can see in our current events many don't know right from wrong, mainly because there have been few if any negative consequences for their actions. Because of that many people have come to believe what's wrong is right & what's right is wrong. And because of their distorted view they have been going out of their way to punish those who have an accurate view of things. Unfortunately it looks like now they will be raising the bar on their punishment to new heights as we are now seeing the beginnings of it.
Some may ask how we got to this point? Well it's both an easy and a difficult question to answer. The easy answer is without a relationship with Jesus Christ our lord it's difficult for people to know what is right or wrong. I'm sure some are thinking, we don't need Jesus to tell us right from wrong. And that would be incorrect thinking.
The problem with that line of thinking is it doesn't take into account that Jesus and what is right has an adversary and that adversary is Satan, and Satan is the total opposite of what is good and right. Satan's goal is to bring as many people as he can down with him. I know some people will say, but there is no God!. And I would say again " that would be incorrect thinking". One of Satan's tactics is to fool people into thinking there is no God.
So this begs the question: If there is a one true God why wouldn't people automatically know this, or why isn't he obvious or visible? Well because God gives us the freedom of choice, and we have the freedom to choose whether to see him or not. If you choose not to believe he exist then it is not likely he will ever reveal himself to you. Satan on the other hand doesn't care whether you believe in him or not. And there's a very bad reason for this. And it's quite simple, as long as you don't believe in God and become a born again Christian then he has you where he wants you. I will be blunt about this, if you remain unsaved until you die or Jesus comes back you will end up with Satan as your eternal torturer.
Now I'm not 100% sure, but I believe we are all born with a God given conscience, a moral compass if you will that initially gives us direction as to what's right & wrong. But as humans we have selfish wants and needs that for some can overwhelm that conscience. I also believe that every time we ignore our conscience we bring down it's volume. So the more we ignore it the quieter it gets, until finally some no longer hear it.
We are currently seeing what a lack of moral compass has done to the US government and it's not the Donald. This lack of moral compass is all part of Bible prophesy (Gods Word) and in all likely hood will usher in the destruction of life as we know it within a generation, possibly sooner. At 58, I hope I'm not be around to see it all but our children probably will. For all of you who think that getting rid of President Donald John Trump is going to improve things, you are just deluding yourselves and come judgement day we will all have to justify our sins which will include any participation in the destruction of the greatest Country the modern world has ever known.
Repent before it's to late for God will soon be judging us.
