Could I be the Bad Guy

Good Guys? – image from pixabay.com

WE may think we are the “good guys” but are we?

If you are a Christian (Christians actually are for whom this blog is written) you will need little in the way of an explanation; if you are not a Christian (you are more than welcome to read my blog) consider what I write is inspired by my belief in GOD’s Word, The Holy Bible, and not merely my opinion.  OK, so I begin:

One of the most destructive actions occurring in this era of human history is abortion: not only does it kill an unborn human but many participants carry emotional scars for life when they realize the fetus was a baby human being – physically equipped with what makes her or him a person.

Tolerating sin to accommodate human flaws or taxing them for a source of revenue places people, on a destructive path; tolerating alternate life styles or defining them as victimless crime is a fallacy and has real consequences; unrestrained greed coupled with disregard for, the hungry, the homeless, the indigent and the orphaned is a crime akin to murder or maybe even genocide.

People who allow evil to reign freely cannot be  considered “The Good Guys”, can they?
Not everything that sparkles with beauty and dazzling displays that excite the senses are what they seem; behind the mask often lurks a dark morbid and dangerous reality.

We can make a difference when we stand for what is right, as we learn what right is, by studying GOD’s Word and speaking up. When we refuse to agree ,or worse, let wrong go unchallenged we may be taking the first step in becoming “The Bad Guy”.

Galatians 5:19-21 ESV 

Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Since GOD’s truth is the ultimate authority governing my life view, I believe all people are flawed and need this truth to guide them in all they do in their lifetime. Believing GOD is a beginning of wisdom and becoming “a better guy”.

Romans 3:23 ESV

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,

If we think we can earn favor from GOD by doing all the good things we can we are wrong:

 

Isaiah 64:6 ESV 

We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.

When we accept what Jesus has done by taking our place paying for our sins we receive the grace of GOD and gain eternal life.

John 3:16 ESV

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

We are to do good during our Earthly life not to earn heaven but to express our gratitude for our salvation and demonstrate GOD’s Love.

Colossians 3:23 ESV

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
