The law of God exist, one of God’s commandments is “Thou shalt not kill”. The law of God is good and perfect. The law of God is ignored and violated by many in the world today. “Thou shalt not kill” is just one of the ten commandments imparted unto Moses. There was a time in America when the ten commandments were taught in schools, and were prominently displayed in classrooms and court houses.
Imagine what our world would be like if everyone simply obeyed “Thou shalt not kill”. How much sorrow, pain, misery and death would have been avoided? Many violations of this law occur almost on a daily basis; there are numerous examples to site. I will reference the latest one I know of. Yesterday, March 22, 2021 a man in Boulder, Colorado murdered ten people who were shopping in a store. This man chose to ignore the law of God; he chose to violate the law of God ten times. This was an evil act, committed by an evil man. The question of good and evil is for the most part is now ignored in American society.
Regrettably, many politicians in America ignore the law of God, and shun the idea of educating our children about the law of God. Why is it wrong to kill? In short, because God states “Thou shalt not kill”. When a society categorically ignores the law of God, you have a society characterized by death and destruction.
I find it interesting that many politicians blame inanimate objects like guns for the violent murders in America. People were murdering each other prior to the invention of gun powder? Blaming objects is a convenient way to avoid acknowledging the evil nature of mankind. To acknowledge the existence of evil, is to by default acknowledge the existence of good, and to acknowledge the existence of good, is to by default acknowledge the existence of God, and to acknowledge the existence of God, is to by default acknowledge the existence of his law. Many do not want to acknowledge God’s law, because they are violating it, and they do not want to stop, but one day they will stop…judgment day is coming.
There are many people and organizations who believe that the law of God is of no importance. These people and organizations blame guns and political rhetoric for the violence in America. They ignore the void of moral character that exists in those who choose to murder. They ignore the truth of free will and personal responsibility. They personify the notion of hate, and blame it for the vast majority of murder and violence in America.
Why have I chosen not to kill? Jesus Christ told us to love each other, to be merciful and to forgive our enemies. God also stated “Thou shalt not kill”. Perhaps, more than my free will choice, I believe the guidance and intervention of the Holy Spirit is the real reason I have chosen not to kill. Despite the watered down preaching of our time, God still punishes sin. I also don’t want to end up in hell, and or have God’s wrath visited upon me.
There is a way to have a better nation, a better society, a better city, a better world, a better self; the only way is to repent, accept Jesus Christ as one’s Lord and Savior, and to endeavor to follow the law of God. I am not confident this world will change for the better. I have only been alive for a relatively few years of human history, and what I have observed is a progression of activity and philosophy adopted by governments and humans, that will incur the wrath of God.
Jesus Christ stated:
Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7:13-14
Sadly, many will end up burning in hell forever, and few will end up in heaven. Looking at America and the world I can see why. Man does not know better than God. Humanity by their choices are ushering in their own death, destruction and eternal condemnation. Jesus Christ is our only salvation.
I have been born again through the blood of Jesus Christ, and he is changing me for the better. My goal is to become more like Jesus Christ on a daily basis. I am not perfect; this is why I need a Savior. It’s only through Jesus Christ that we can become more moral and better people. I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. There is a spiritual nature to our existence. Ultimately, our only hope and salvation is Jesus Christ. May our beloved Savior, Jesus Christ bless and keep you.
Heavenly Father, forgive me of my sins; help me to be a better man, help me to be more like Jesus. I know Lord, one day my heart will stop beating, and oxygen will stop filling my lungs. I don’t know when Lord, but you do. You know the days of my life Lord. You give me life. Whether through death or the rapture Lord, help me be ready as possible to meet you. As you know Lord, I am not a perfect servant; I am flawed and inconsistent in areas of my life. I ask that you help me to improve upon these areas. Help me to love and help others more. Help me to be more like your Son, my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for the Holy Spirit. Heavenly Father, bless and help children, women and men who are without proper housing, food, water and income. Bless and help children everywhere, including those in hospitals, foster homes and group homes. Help others to see your truth Lord, in the precious name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ was born in a manger with animals around. Mary was pregnant with Jesus, and her husband Joseph tried to find a place for her to give birth. There was no room at the Inn. Mary and Joseph did not stay at five-star Hilton; however, God provided a safe place for Mary to give birth to Jesus. God protected and provided for Jesus, Mary and Joseph; God had their back! It would seem very daunting to me to have a wife who is on the verge of giving birth, and I have no warm and safe place for her to bring the new life into the world. This is where trusting God becomes very important. None of us are going to live on this planet forever, either through the rapture or death, we will leave this planet. God knows when our lives will end on this planet. This is a main reason why we need Jesus Christ as our Savior, so we will spend eternity in Heaven and not hell.
I have endeavored to think, what it would be like to live on the streets without any money. Feeling unsafe when you slept, but you simply fall asleep out of exhaustion, no place to use the restroom, no food, shower or change of clothing, and people shunning you. I feel very inadequate to help those living on the street, aside from praying for them, and trying to help them at times with the little money I have. I will admit this, it is not something I am proud of, but it is the truth. I fear caring for people living on the streets and loving them on an individual basis. I know my heart would be broken if I did. It is easier for me to hand someone a five dollar bill, instead of getting to know their story and befriending them. This is a flaw I have, and one I pray God helps me overcome. Perhaps, my real problem is not a lack of financial resources, but a lack of emotional resources. Getting to know someone and truly loving them, is the greatest gift we may give another, and it does not cost a dime. May God forgive me for not doing enough to help those who are without adequate resources, such as love, shelter, food, clothing, friends, family…etc. With the assistance of the Holy Spirit, I hope to do better.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. Matthew 12:41-45
And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; and the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. Genesis 2:21-22
