This is not an Ideal World

Ever since Adam and Eve sinned and were cast out of the Garden of Eden life for humans has not been easy: we have great capabilities in intelligence, skills and adaptability but use our free will for evil as well as good. Some times we find ourselves stuck in paradoxes and even the best of us can only guess at a solution to a problem.

Yes, if all people were obedient to GOD all would be much better here and now.  Yet, even if only all Christians were perfectly obedient to Christian Ideals unsaved nonbelievers would still need some kind of help in order to live in this world successfully, as we strive to lead them to The Lord.

There Just are not Enough Christians Living in Obedience to GOD.

Of course if it were to happen that all people are saved and know Jesus as their Lord and Savior then the work of The Great Commission would be finished.

The World would be a different place: no suffering, no mistakes . . . etc.  Or would it?  We still are living in the fallen world tempted and subject to deception and our own weakness.

When the people of GOD fail to be their brother’s keeper, care for widows and orphans and, support Christian principles fully, human logic may then lead us to tax wrong things instead of opposing them and, fail to call them what they are in the sight of GOD: SINS.

Therefore,  GOD’s Revelation will be fulfilled nevertheless.

Revelation 20:11-15 ESV

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. And if anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

 

So, what can we do fellow Christian?

We as Christians are living in a flawed physical world that is ruled by a Fallen Angel; we accept Jesus, study GOD’s Word and become as obedient as possible to GOD.  Each day that we are alive is a day closer to the return of Jesus Christ.  Each day that we are alive we should grow in our Christian Walk and become more Christ-Like.  We can only strive to do what is right and good. Keep up the Good Fight. Without GOD we cannot become Christ like but we must try.

SCRIPTURE:

Genesis 3:17-19 ESV

And to Adam he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in pain you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread, till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”

Mark 16:15 ESV

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

Luke 14:13 ESV 

But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind,

 

AMEN
