In a nation full of wickedness, we see the apparent body of Christ embracing evil. It is necessary to take a look at what it means to be reprobate. There is a growing number of people today who have rejected God's ways, His justice, His truth choosing to embrace evil, hoping to appear loving to the world. God has promised to destroy these without remedy. The doctrine of reprobation is rarely touched on in the modern church. The people are suffering from their lack of knowledge.
It is not either lost or saved, some have made a clear choice to deny God. God promised to them a strong delusion. These often have a form of godliness, Paul instructed us to turn away from them (I Timothy 3:5).
This week was the introduction of this series " When God Destroys". It is my hope to stir in you some introspection, as the disciples before Jesus asked is it "I" Lord? This is a good place to meditate, though it may feel awkward even painful, it will produce good living. To be clear, if you sin you have an advocate with God, Jesus Christ the righteous. The bottom line is we should never change our viewpoint on sin as to start to believe it is not important to confess it. There is forgiveness seven times seventy, but we must confess it. This confession should ever strengthen our hatred for that particular sin. God hates sin. Do You?
