Borrowed Truths

No Inhibitions

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.” (Romans 1:28)

The world, Satan’s world, and in many cases the heart of man which is continually evil, (Gen. 6:5) seeks for no inhibitions, it desires to be set free from the laws, whether legal or moral, that have been placed upon us.

The foundation of all moral laws, those that are written upon our heart, is God, but man has been blessed with free will to choose the path he decides to walk in this life, and as we lose certain inhibitions, those first moral constructs begin to lose their strength within us, especially when there is no immediate punishment for them. “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:32)

By the allowance of freedom of expression, inhibitions are lessened within us, those who have been placed in authority over us begin to become lax in their forcible adherence to certain laws enacted, whether written on paper or acknowledged as correct or incorrect in a society. It has always been well known that the more financial wherewithal that a person has, or perhaps because of a social position within a certain area that those laws are not enforced, it has always been so. Power has its perks, so to speak.

But we speak here today of the common man, all those in society that have not attained to those positions. That reprobate mind that some have determined to exhibit publicly is no longer held up as shameful in the eyes of others, not only is it allowed to exist, but in many cases those in authority over us have set laws in the land against those that would speak up against those evils in the sight of God. You may choose any of a thousand examples today to validate these words, the gay bar on the corner, abortion on demand, Black Lives Matter, the financial enablement of those who could work but will not. The moral construct has not been modified, for mankind has always been thus, but the desire to control our appetites, the knowledge that certain inhibitions should be quenched, that there is a right and wrong has been openly denied, and mankind has decided that the will of God is not the will they would choose for themselves.

“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” (Eccl. 8:11) This is, for the lack of a better description, the expected result of a long age of grace, when the Almighty does not send fire from the sky, the people will serve whatever god they choose, and that god is always one that is self-serving, one that allows them to live as they desire to. They are the gods of the lust of the flesh, the eyes and the pride of life.

“But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” (1 Cor. 9:27) I write nothing new here, each man has been given free will to do as he pleases, those that are in authority over us at this particular time in the history of mankind have decided that certain laws of morality can no longer be justified as enforceable, and have invented new laws that punish those who attempt to speak up against these known sins, whether they see them as against the will and Word of the Most High, or just simply wrong in the eyes of society.

The days we live in remind me of the moment when the Lord said to Moses, “Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves.” (Exo. 32:7) When he came around that last rock of the mountain, he did not express empathy, there was no desire to attempt to communicate to them the wrong they were doing, those who desired to commit their lives to the Lord were called to come to his side, the rest were utterly destroyed. What is approaching cannot be stopped, we have been appointed to warn all that will listen, in love, but with firm truth.
