There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
~Proverbs 16:25, NASB
To the sophisticated, it seems scandalous to say that everything is black or white, right or wrong with no middle ground.
Derek Kidner is an expert when it comes to Wisdom Literature and he says, “there is no grey area in wisdom literature.” I know there is no grey in Jesus teaching: there is the broad gate and the narrow gate–there is not a third gate. There are sheep and goats but there is no third group. There is no middle ground, no in between. In Matthew 12:30, Jesus makes His position crystal clear, “He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me scatters.” I don’t see any grey area there, do you? Purgatory is a figment of the imagination; it is wishful thinking. In reading Kidner, I got an insight and I shared it with our prayer group a couple of weeks back, and they agreed.
Note today’s verse, it contains the supposed grey area: “There is a way which seems right to a man.” This is the grey area, the way that seems right to man. Think of it like this: you have right, moral order established by God, and you have wrong which is the opposite. It is in-between these two absolutes that the world creates a grey area and within this sphere, they choose what is right or wrong. This explains the thinking and behavior of the left. They look down on pro-lifer’s as being vermin, maybe one step above being a Trump supporter or being straight. In their perverted minds, they think they are righteous. Remember when Democrats where the champions of racial injustice and the poor. Things have changed; now they are the champions of sexual perversion. What courage on the part of Biden to fly the LGBQTA flag over all the American embassies in the world. He standing for the rights of gays, lesbians, transgenders and pedophiles. Romans chapter one makes it clear that all sexual perversion is an act of rebellion against God. Has the word of God changed its position on sexual perversion? No, it is still an abomination and dreaded plague. Oh but to hear them tell it, their insights are greater than the word of God, after all this is the 21 century and those of us who believe the Bible are ignorant and antiquated. We are hater’s; we are intolerant; and we live low lives. That’s not all we do: we fight the wars, police the streets, pay the taxes, build the roads and bridges, staff the hospitals and missions of mercy while they run for public office and demonstrate in the streets. Sorry, I did forget, they give us the nightly news! And, I’m sorry, I forgot Hollywood. What on earth would we do with the nightly news and Hollywood? How could any of us survive without Robert De Niro? It’s unthinkable to have such frightening thoughts.
Let me prophecy. I can tell you where the left is leading this country; to destruction, hell and death. You mark my word, unless we repent and drain the swamp, America will perish.
No one is their right mind digs up azaleas, especially big ones, but someone had me dig up four yesterday and I transplanted here at the Eastern Gate Ministry HQ. The changes of them surviving or not good but this rain is going to help. Unfortunately for those of you who don’t like rain, we are going to have an entire week of it according to Big Mama and James Spann. Another message of hope from the Newby family, Jimmy had a better day…there is still hope.
Have a great day and enjoy your weekend.
