“The reason so many believers are struggling is that we have voted in the past asking God to bless our plans rather than casting our votes based on seeking His agenda. We want God to sign off on our decisions rather than us following His.” Tony Evans
Thoughts From The Diary of A Desperate Man
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” Romans 1:32
Paul closes Romans 1 with this dogmatic statement. How do you know the judgment of God? How can Paul be certain that all men in every age know that there is a judgment? By the fact that they judge.
The moment you say, “That is wrong” or, “He shouldn’t have done that” or, “That is not fair” or any other moral pronouncement of any kind – even though you may never verbalize it- you make an absolute standard of right and wrong that is applicable to other people. Judging means that you believe that there is a standard that governs not only your behavior, but the behavior of others as well. This, by definition, is a belief in absolutes, for you are saying that there exists a standard applicable to all by which all are judged.
All men everywhere agree that truth is absolute. The debate in society is not whether truth is absolute, but rather who gets to define truth. Most universities allow students to participate in fornication and homosexuality, and their dormitories are an open invitation to immoral behavior. But if these same students violate the school’s “political correctness” code, they will be expelled. These centers of higher learning believe in a set of absolutes defined by them.
People are incapable of not judging! When you judge others you argue that there exists a code of conduct that applies not only to you, but also to all people, and the fact that you judge attests to your conviction that all people should be judged by that standard.
Judges 13-15 Luke 6:27-49 (New King James Version)
