|“…to the degree that you understand your depravity and propensity to drift into trouble, you will eagerly submit to the authority of Christ in your life.” Walter A. Henrichsen (“Walt”)
Thoughts from the Diary of a Desperate Man by Walter A Henrichsen (“Walt”)
“All who have sinned without the law will also perish without the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law.” Romans 2:12
People are better served accepting God’s standards rather than insisting on living by their own. Most of what God disallows, our conscience condemns, as Paul noted: ”When Gentiles who have not the law do by nature what the law requires, they are a law to themselves, even though they do not have the law.” 308
On the other hand, much of what our conscience prohibits, God allows. The taboos and mores of your culture appreciably influence your conscience. Things like not gambling, walking under a ladder, not killing animals, may make your conscience feel guilty when transgressed, but God does not prohibit them.
We get angry and judge someone who cuts in front of us. However, regardless of our opinion, God may not condemn the offender who may not have realized that he did it. Let us not forget, “we shall all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ.”309 You get to decide whether you wish to be judged by God’s standard or your own. But you must make the decision now. If you want to be judged by God’s standard, you cannot judge others by your own standard. If you choose your own standard, God says you must keep it perfectly yourself, and you don’t have available the forgiveness of Jesus Christ if you fail. His propitious death is only available to those who live by God’s standards.
