Since we have a political correctness with justification for bad actions; meaning I would like to have my own way. If I cannot get my way, I will have an tantrum like a child. Moral laws were generally the rule of thumb (ie Golden Rule of Matthew 7:12). It was a law of reciprocity, respect, judging between Godly principles of right and wrong. In a world in which there are many shades of gray, these areas, as well as the bad ones, are mocking the core of why God made man and woman in the first place. Genesis 1:27 states, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” It set our boundaries between male and female in society. Today, you will see that the World is turning dull and characterless for worshipping idols.
Idols are things that replaces the love and adoration for God Almighty.
God explained to us in the holy scriptures that His love and respect is reciprocal. To tolerate the worship of another is unacceptable and extremely disrespectful in the following ways:
Exodus 34:14 For thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God:
Isaiah 48:11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.
Just in general, we strongly dislike it when someone steps on our ego, call us out of our natural name, or are impolite towards us. How much more will God be taken for granted? I’m so thankful for the Lord’s faithfulness toward the world that He uses men and women who will keep His commandments, and to show us His grace and mercy through His Son, Jesus Christ.
If you reject the Son, you are rejecting the Father God, Elohim too! The world continues this downward spiral of worshipping other things, and as a result they are rejecting God’s love, and exchange for their own way. You can see the false worship through unisex apparel, colognes, and hairstyles; movies, sports, and social media; by improper body language and verbiage, and general roles of character set for male or female. We have seen the cross of Calvary has been turn upside down and is a curse. Let’s read Romans chapter one, before I start to cry writing this to you:
13 Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
14 I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.
15 So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
[God does overlook sin from anyone.]
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
[Your inner consciousness, your spirit, tells us of the righteousness of God, so you are without excuse]
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
[You fail to believe and trust in God.]
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
[In other words, they wouldn’t worship God or give Him glory, praise, thanks, homage, or adoration. They refused to worship God; which is very disrespectful and unacceptable]
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
[You become godless, with pointless reasonings, and silly speculations in your thinking; which is truly unacceptable to God]
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
[Now you exchange holiness for unholiness; true worship for false worship of idols; which is going against God’s commandment]
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
[How can you abandon God for the degrading power of sin by choice? Foolish thinking will happen without proper worship towards God.]
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
[There are many who cannot handle the truth in this world. They were accept false worship in the lust, instead of genuine spiritual worship of Elohim, our God.]
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
[True Unacceptable Worship towards God (v.26-27), a function contrary to nature affections of man and a woman.]
28 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;
[A reprobate mind means to have a depraved mind, to do things which are improper and repulsive, to have your own way]
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 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.
[You really do not believe that God, who is holy, will aloud unholy things to worship Him. God forbid? Every person who enthusiastically approve and tolerate others who practice them will be punish as well.]
Anyone who attributes having objective reality of the world to chance or to a different creator [idol(s)] is already guilty of deliberately refuse to agree with God, because to deny the True and Living God one must set aside common sense and become a fool. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good (Psalm 14:1).
The World worships false gods in their blind attempt to be happy with the belief in idols – people, status, or whatever – to replace the true essence of our Lord. The World will never give you true contentment, but will give false hopes, like a dog catching its tail. Everyone wasn’t to worship. The question is, when you reject the first commandment, you will no doubtedly worship false gods – gods of “having it my own way” of thinking.
We are told as Believers-in-Christ and according Ephesians 4:23, “to be renewed in the spirit of your mind.” “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).”
Become a Right Thinker to Righteousness and Reject Every False Idol of Worship in This World. Jesus Christ has come to give us liberty and freedom to have access to the Father God. Choose that Hope to Eternity my Brother or Sister.
