There are houses that are wrong and houses that are right. Psa 119:86-105. Jos 24:15.
Acts 16:30-33. With that being said, we ask. “Is your house right?” Just in case you haven’t
a clue as to what makes a house right, listen to this. If you are male; do you show
God fearing leadership which directs the family correctly? Is your house in church on Sunday?
Have you obeyed the gospel, being baptized for the forgiveness of sins? Acts 2:38. Acts 22:16.
Are you married to the woman in your house? Are your children born into a legal marriage?
Are you having bibleclasses in your home teaching the children how to behave and
become productive citizens of the future? Do you have fits of rage, swearing, smoking,
drinking, hanging out in the streets and your children know it?
Once again, I ask; “Is your house right?” Many problems come from bad houses where
no one is teaching or doing what is right.
So, I ask. Is your house a breeding ground for the future problems?
“Therefore, putting away lying, “Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,” for we are members
of one another.” Eph 4.25
There are some who cannot be trusted with anything that comes out of their mouth.
Every time they tell you something, you will need to fact check 10 times. The trust that we
should have in the word of our fellowman disappears because there are individuals out there
lying all the time.
The bible attempts to keep the value of one’s word alive by teaching mankind to know truth
and speak it only. Jesus Christ said that lying is a trait from the Devil because Satan is the
father of lying. Gen 3.4. John 8.44.
Trying to impress people is not a reason to lie. Fear isn’t a reason to lie. Wanting to do what
you want and be somewhere you shouldn’t, isn’t a reason to lie.
Shun lying, because liars end up in Hell. Rev 21.8

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
But continue in the things which thou learned and been assured of, knowing of whom
thou hast learned them. And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which
make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” 2 Tim 3.13-16.
Everyone is tired of hearing about all the crime in cities everywhere and we wish it
would just go away. But how can that happen if people are moving farther and farther
away from God. Because of the lack of interest in God, man is reaping the results of
his deeds of disobedience. But there is a way to make lives better and that is by
returning to the scripture as our guide. If we do that, we will save more souls and
even as more bullets fly, we will be secure as children of the Lord.
As for the rest of the world, they will destroy themselves because they have
chosen to reject the word of God.
“The church doesn't have Bible classes for young children, and I have young children, so my husband and I will not be attending there.” Another couple says, “we see that the church has no Bible classes for young children, but we like it and they have to start somewhere, so we're going to have our children form the first class at this church.” Another person says, “this church meets in an apartment, they don’t own a building, so I will not be attending there.”
Another person says “this church is meeting in an apartment, but every church starts somewhere, so I'm going to attend and one day we'll get out of the apartment and find a better place.”
Here are two examples I've given you of what church shoppers say about a local church. I wonder which decision pleases the Lord? Matt 18.20
