How about getting a Bible and reading this scripture. "Woe to him who gives drink to his neighbor, pressing him to your bottle, even to make him drunk, that you may look on his nakedness!" Habakkuk 2:15
Talk about the "me too movement." It sure didn't exist back in those times, but we see that drugging females or males and undressing them for sexual pleasure was something that evil people did. Things don't really change; they just upgrade to modern technology and roll right along. Ecclesiastes 1:9-10.
But, back to the topic at hand, taking advantage of someone who is helpless and incapacitated is just deplorable. We are glad that God doesn't sleep and He causes some evildoers to be exposed in this life. But just because He doesn't expose all drug toting predators right now; doesn't mean that He won't reserve a place in His court room on the Judgment Day. No one will get away with anything and it is better to be exposed in this life; than wait till after death for it to happen. John 8:21-24.
High school students! I would like to say there is nothing wrong with being a virgin. For in the eyes of God, it is the right thing because He commanded men to abstain from fornication. 1 Thess 4:3-8. 1 Cor 6.18.
Fornication means unlawful sexual intercourse. The sex is illicit, because it is outside marriage and sex has been created by God and given to husband and wife. 1 Cor 7:1-5. Gen 3:16.
Now you may say, "I didn't know that. Everywhere I look, I see people talking about sex and having sex"!
And that might be the case,because people don't do what God commands. Many young people grow up in houses, where the word "God" is never mention; unless it is added to the word "damn."
Such is an ungodly home and sadly it is producing siblings who have no relationship with their Creator. But it doesn't have to remain that way. Man can change and come to understand what the word of God teaches. However, one must take an interest in what the word of God has to say.
So don?t be ashamed by taunts. You are fine, so stand your ground. You will grow up the right way and free from having children out of wedlock and other things which only cause problems before you are adults.
Bad things occur on the highways and streets. Take for example; hit and run drivers. Aggressive drivers who are ready to use violence in the blink of an eye. Assaults. Rape. Robbery. Snatching children, murder. etc A few year ago, an Ohio man, angry with his former girlfriend randomly shot and killed stranger who was out picking up bottles from the street.
Yes, the roadways get us to where we want to be, but it can also be a place where one is introduced to injury or death.
Jesus said evil originates in the heart of man. Matthew 15:16-20. When the evil thought is conceived, it doesn?t stay still; it turns into action and then we hear about the wicked results on the news.
The heart of man must change and that comes when people give themselves over to the word of God. To live life as He teaches us. To love God with all our being and to love our fellowman as well. Luke 10.25-28.
That is the mission of the Lord?s church, to reach out and teach one person at a time. Are you dear reader; ready for the change in lifestyle that the word of God can give you?
At times the Lords church has been subjected to receive complaining phone calls from people who are angry that church material has been left on their car or front door. There is no way I?ll be able to know the answer to this question, but I will reveal it to you anyway. I wonder if these people phone anyone who places printed material on their cars or front doors? Or do they only phone churches? If the pizza man can place printed material and they don?t call him to complain; I have to wonder why? If the roofing man can place printed material and they don?t call him to complain; I have to wonder why?
Could these people be church haters? They hate God. They hate anyone trying to spread the word about God. They are just mean, miserable and wrong. Jesus said men would hate the truth and hate those who teach it. John 3.19-21. John 7.7. John 15.18-23. John 16.1-4.
And they have another foolish action they display in their phone calls. They don?t identify themselves, their homes or cars. Some of them even use profanity toward the church. They throw rocks and hide their hands. What a bunch of cowards.!
To all the haters out there. I tell you this. Next time you call; leave your name, address and description of your car. We will gladly avoid your property. We don?t want to offer the word of God to those who hate it. Matt 7.6. Acts 18.5-6.
