Man’s rules can never trump God’s laws

Published 9:24am Friday, April 12, 2013

In today’s world, is it proper to condemn sin? Any preacher who doesn’t will be held accountable by God.

God has condemned sin in the flesh, and given us the ability to read about it and talk about it.

Today our country has passed laws that make sin no longer sin, which is not so with God. I will name some that show how far we’ve come from the Bible. God’s laws are supreme, and supersede man’s.

Here are some that we have forsaken and just why our country is in a downward fall.

First for years we have forsaken the word of God in abortion.

In Jeremiah 1: verse 5 “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.”

You do not have a child unless it is given by God.

Second, we are to allow same sex marriages, gay rights, and say that if you are against them you are a bigot.

Well here is just what the Holy Bible says about that, in the new testament.

In Romans 1; verses 25 Thru 28 “Who changed the truth of God’s word into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even the women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

“And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one towards another, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not lie to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”

There is a list of things listed below these verses quoted, and we will all stand before a Holy God and give an account of our deeds.

As a Missionary Baptist minister of God’s word, it is my duty to proclaim the truth, or I will be held accountable if I keep silent. We were born in sin (because of Adam and Eve), but God made a provision for our sins, if we repent (turn from) and live for him, which I have tried to do.

Will you repent and receive him today?
