Matthew 5:27-30

Matthew 5:27. ‘”You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28. But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29. If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30. And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.”‘

This was Jesus Christ talking. It is a direct truth from Him. I am tempted to throw out all media because it focuses on sex so much to sell things, in movies, on tv, in the news, everywhere and pornography pops up everywhere, computers, androids, phones, you name it etc. People believe it is ok because it is everywhere. Lust is not ok. Porn is not ok. It is adultery and thus is sin. Jesus said it and He is the judge. If you disagree, take it up with Him. That is just one sin that captures people in its snates, there are so many, but it is quite prevalent and unfortunately so accepted, so I pick on it. Just because 1,000,000 believe a sin is not a sin does not make it less of a sin, just makes 1,000,000 people wrong. ❤

James 1:2-18

James 1:2. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3. because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do. 9. Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position. 10. But the rich should take pride in their humiliation—since they will pass away like a wild flower. 11. For the sun rises with scorching heat and withers the plant; its blossom falls and its beauty is destroyed. In the same way, the rich will fade away even while they go about their business. 12. Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. 13. When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; 14. but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. 15. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. 16. Don’t be deceived, my dear brothers and sisters. 17. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. 18. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.”
