I van be right or I can be wrong. I try to be right but sometimes I blow it. Sometimes I am wrong without realizing it and there are consequences anyway. I have the right to believe anything I wish but if I believe I can fly and jump off a cliff, I will still fall. So anyone can be right or wrong about Jesus, but being wrong will have eternal negative consequences.
Consider: If I am wrong about Jesus and nothing happens, I have only used this life to do good to others, no harm done. However if I am right about Jesus and the Bible is truth, my living for Him will be eternal closeness to God and reward. However, if I would use my right to be apethetic or wrong about Jesus, then you will still live eternally separated from all goodness and love. It would cost dearly and never stop costing. So just because you have the right to reject Jesus as your Savior does not mean it is wise to do so and in fact will cost you exceedingly more than obeying Him now. God always gives back much more than we give Him and He always loves and wants us close to Him.❤
If things always go right in your life, that is so wonderful. Except, we are promised trouble due to the existence of sin and selfishness in this world. We live, for now until Jesus comes for us, in a world of opposing forces- one that wants us to morally grow in love and grace and one that wants us destroyed and dead. Good and evil are there. And our own selves has to constantly fight selfishness and badness in our own choices. So going wrong is the natural conclusion to all that sometimes. So what do uou do when uou fall off that goodness horse? You just jump back on that horse and ride on. How? Humble prayer and Bible reading and repentence (rejecting the bad and accepting obedience and good). Jesus is our path to freedom and all good in our lives. He is the only way. And the good news is that he understands and is for us and loves us. No one gets or loves us more. ❤
It is truth that some things are right and some are wrong. It is clearly laid out in the Bible. Believing it is right or wrong does not change its rightness or wrongness one bit. It is or it isn’t, based on the Bible. That is the truth.❤
“Two wrongs don’t make a right” has rung in my ears and has committed to knowledge at a young age. There is wrong and right. “Bad” people are just those who decided to commit a wrong, an offence that has reprocussions. The one attacked in some way is the victim. And vengeance belongs to the Lord, who will repay an unrepentant act some day and eternally. That is the idea. For the victim to repay now does not make the crime right or atoned for. That being said, my dad was a Marine and when my sister’s boyfriend beat her, he whooped him then called the police. And when I would see kids picked on growing up and then later, I always stepped in to see justice was done. There is something within some or maybe many of us that wants wrong to be punished and right to be the norm. And I attribute this to our makeup, having all been created by God, the Holy One, the good One. We all know right from wrong attributed something in us says, “That is wrong” or “That is right”. Those who choose to do wrong will be punished by God someday, even if they get away with it now. So it is in His hands. And as I have grown closer to Him, I bow humbly to His direction and control. I want to let Him do what He will. I wish for God’s will to be done. I believe that is what Jesus meant by “turn the other cheek”. To stop someone doing wrong in their tracks to minimize damage but then let God deal with their fate and not us pursue further harm. God cannot change their heart back if they are dead. Then it is too late. So stopping them and then allowing law enforcement to do their job allows a chance for contemplation and hopefully repentence. This made sense to me after years of working this out. So I wanted to share my findings for those who have also pondered this. Attitude of the heart is really the heart of the matter, pun intended. Lol ❤
Doing something good does not offset or make up for something bad you do, even if you believe that to be true or have made such a habit of this balance game that you do it automatically. What makes up for doing something wrong, like stealing, lying, cheating, doing drugs, getting drunk, watching porn, getting off on someone other than your spouse, killing someone, hating someone, not doing or saying what you should, etc. is to stop doing it and not do it again. God forgives most willingly if you humbly ask Him but if you ask forgiveness and then do it all over again, are you sincere? It would be like my daughter as ask toddler writing all over the wall with crayons and then telling me she is sorry then doing it again when I walk out of the room. The next day, telling me she’s sorry then doing it again. As a mom, I would be sad that she was still doing it and would rather she not even ask me if she didn’t mean it and was just going to do it again. Now a toddler doesn’t get that at all but we as adults do. We need to reapect and honor God so much that we don’t risk doing anything that would make Him sad or disappointed or even worse angry. I would rather err on the side of caution than risk disrespecting Him intentionally. I do that enough unintentionally. And I work on all this. It is hard to keep up with it but thank God He also helps us do what pleases Him!! Woo hoo!!❤❤❤
