FROM THE HEART OF THIS BIBLE TEACHER/COUNSELOR:
Matthew 5:21-22 New King James Version (NKJV)
Murder Begins in the Heart (and is equal in punishment as all liars).
21 “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not murder, and whoever murders will be in danger of the judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to his brother, ‘Raca!’ shall be in danger of the council. But whoever says, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of hell fire.
1 John 3:15 New King James Version (NKJV)
15 “Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.”
Revelations 21:8 – NLT But Cowards, unbelievers, the corrupt, murderers, the immoral those who practice witchcraft, idol worshipers, and all liars–their fate is in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. this is the second death.” Rev. 20:10 —“There they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
God’s Word places murders, angry/haters, liars, etc., in the same eternal punishment. We categorize sins, but God does not.
Recently AFR has been encouraging all schools across America to post on their school signs – “You shall not murder!” Every time I hear this, I immediately think how the youth of today have been raised in a country that murders babies daily while they live in their mother’s wombs – 60 million+!
This one issue explains why youth decide to kill and harm others with cars, knives, guns, etc. Murdering babies has desensitized the human conscious to the value of life. Kill babies, kill the old and everyone in-between!
Murder comes out of a hateful evil heart. Many of the perpetrators of evil come out of painful dysfunctional families. People lie from an evil heart. People make vows or promises to others, then choose to break the marital vow or promise from an evil selfish heart.
AMERICA needs to wake up to the fact that all evil comes out of evil hearts. This nation needs to bring godly values back into our homes, schools, courts, and government. We say, “In God We Trust.” Evil hearted people are trying to destroy this motto of life.
The devil is delighted that the majority of the world is on ‘the broad way that leads to destruction.’ He knows his end is eternal hell and he wants the world to join him in his suffering.
We all are born sinners fallen short of the glory of God. We all need a Savior – His name is Jesus – Immanuel God with us! Salvation is found in the book of Acts. We all must repent of our sins, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins, and God will give us His Spirit – the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It is a life-changing experience!
Then we must choose to be an imitator of the Lord Jesus Christ. We must allow the Fruit of the Spirit (Gals. 5) to rule and reign in our lives. We must choose to be holy as He is holy – God is love – (1 Cor. 13).
THIS IS THE SOLUTION TO ALL EVIL!!!!
