God Still Writes The Rules

Since the Garden of Eden the Bible, God’s Holy Word, has given the standard for life and living, it was the standard which guided the Fathers of this nation in writing the founding documents, and when all else passes away the word of God will remain for all eternity.  The Bible says, “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
When God says something is ‘right’ or ‘good’, it is always so.  Conversely, when God describes something as sin, it is always so.  Many lists of sins exist in the Bible as do lists of Godly actions.  No human, regardless of their position, education, or status, can change God’s word because “HE” is God and we are not.
Scripture lists ‘immorality’ as a sin.  Immorality, in God’s word, is listed as an abomination which manifests itself in 5 ways.  Sadly, by and large this culture has decided to disregard God’s standard and develop our own based on our feeling, our likes, and our dislikes.
God word defines immorality as incest, fornication, adultery, bestiality, and homosexuality.  Every time these acts are spoken of in scripture they are identified as sin.  Let us never forget that the rules which God writes are intended for our physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
Also, let’s not forget that relationship, marriage, and sex, was God’s idea and he wrote the rules for them.  Genesis 2:24 says, “Therefore man shall leave his father and mother and ‘hold fast’, ‘cling to’, and ‘cleave to’ HIS WIFE.”
The more we, as God’s creation, attempt to change God’s truth, the further we get from Him.  This is true as individuals, as a culture, and as a country.
Neither a Pastor nor a President can change God’s principles.  Every time we try to change what God said we steer a course which opposes God.  Opposing God is dangerous on every level.  To oppose God is to side with God’s greatest opponent.  He goes by many names, “The Tempter,”  “Lucifer”, “The Anti-Christ”, “The Devil”, and “Satan.”  Siding with Satan is to sign on with the one person who started in heaven and after being ‘cast down’ 4 different times, will ultimately find his place in the Lake of Fire. (Rev 20)
Years ago, when I was in High School, I truly disliked many of the rules which our little school had.  I could gripe about them, hate them, and want them to change, but when I broke them, I was disciplined for my disobedience.  The same is true for God's laws.
Let’s be diligent about God’s word which contains His principles for life and living.  Life will be better, healthier, and longer.
