Are We Born With Morals?

I have heard it said that we don’t need the ten commandments or laws because we are born with natural moral values. The bible says we are sinners from birth and that is because we are not born with natural moral values. They have to be taught to us. We have to be given rules and laws in order to gain these values.

Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Psalm 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

Proverbs 22:15 Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.

I remember when my kids were very little, we never taught our children to lie, cheat, or steal. However, we caught them lying and even stealing. Their conscience knew it was wrong because we had told them it was wrong, that is why they tried to hide it, but if moral values are natural to us at birth we would have never had those conversations. If murder wasn’t illegal I’m sure many more people would be out there releasing their anger right now. People that wouldn’t normally do it because it is illegal.

Gender Confusion

Is it really that difficult to figure out which restroom or gym locker you should be using? Our country is on the path of difilement. I understand the fact that there are people in this world that truly believe they are not the gender they were born into. I understand that human emotions are strong to the point of giving into them. On a daily basis there are moments I would love to beat someone down because they have pushed me too far. There are times when emotions should not take over your life.

We are surrounded in this world by stalkers, rapist, abusers, pedophiles, the mentally insane, etc. These are people who are so lost in their emotions that they would do anything to get the satisfaction they want. They pretend to be your friend, companion, soul mate or whatever to get closer to their emotional intentions. Now, I understand, or at least try to understand, that some people are not content with the body parts they were born with. That is a conflict between them and God. While I’m on the subject of God, I would like to say that my God doesn’t make mistakes with genders when He creates us but, He does allow Satan to intrude in our lives and it is up to us to make the decision. It’s called free will. Succumb to your emotions are become what God created you to be.

With that being said, this post is not about a person’s struggle with how God made them. This is about protecting others from these struggles. When a trangender male is allowed access into an area where women are vulnerable it has serious implications.

Judge Me, Please!

Matthew 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

This is the most popular verse cited by those who don’t want their sins acknowledged. This verse is not saying “Do not judge others”. Continue reading the teaching………..

Matthew 7:2-5 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

The way you judge another is the same way God will judge you. Be mindful in how you judge others. Get all the facts, don’t judge to make yourself seem more righteous, don’t judge to beguile others. Judge with love and mercy. Recognize your own sins before you call someone out on their sins. You see, one sin is just as worthy of death as another and if you commit one sin you have committed them all. None of us are sinless, therefore, ALL of us have broken every single commandment of God. If you have ever lied, then you are a thief as well. If you have ever committed adultery, even just a simple sexual thought of another person, then you are also a murderer. If you are a murderer than you are even a thief and a lair. And since gay marriage is the topic of world, if you have broken even one single law of God, you are also homosexual along with all the other sins. One sin is not greater than another.

James 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well: But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Romans 3:21-23 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

This is the whole reason God sent himself as Christ in human form to shed His own blood for our sins. Animal sacrifice just isn’t enough for what we do. We needed a greater sacrifice to cover our debt.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gay Marriage, Homosexuals, & God’s Word

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

We are suppose to be teaching God’s word not supporting actions against it.

How much more plain can God be about His feelings toward homosexuality??

1 Corinthians 6:9-12
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

effeminate: having feminine qualities untypical of a man: not manly in appearance or manner, marked by an unbecoming delicacy or overrefinement. [merriam webster]

Leviticus 18:22
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

A man is not suppose to lay (have sexual relations) with another man.

Leviticus 20:13
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Romans 1:27
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Sodom and Gomorrah Genesis 19
The men of Sodom wanted to have sexual relations with the two men (angels) Lot invited into his home. Lot offered his virgin daughters instead but the men refused. The men of Sodom were homosexuals. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their wickedness.

Deuteronomy 22:5
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

The Lord said to “be fruitful and multiply“.

Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

A true rainbow is a promise from God to never again flood the earth with water. BUT, this gay pride rainbow is a promise from God that He will soon flood the earth with fire.

2 Peter 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

What is Considered Adultery?

This is what God says about adultery:

Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

Matthew 5:27-28 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

Proverbs 6:32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

Ezekiel 16:32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers instead of her husband!

Mark 10:11-12 And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.

1 Corinhtians 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

Ephesians 5:5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

Proverbs 5:3-8 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them. Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth. Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:

Proverbs 22:14 The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein.

Revelation 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

There are many other verses about this subject in God’s word. None of them have a good outcome for the soul of the adulterer. Temptation is hard to overcome but, even if you no longer love your spouse, you should still love God even more. Cheating on your spouse is cheating on God. You may be hiding in shadows or behind closed doors for fear that your spouse will catch you but, you’ve already been caught and His wrath is much worse than your spouse could ever dream up. It’s not too late though, stop and repent. You may end up losing your marriage, which you obviously don’t want anyways, but, at least you will be right with God. And if you want to keep your marriage then maybe, just maybe, your spouse will forgive you just as God will.

One good rule of thumb is, if you wouldn’t do it in front of your spouse, it’s cheating. If you have to hide it from your spouse because you know it will upset him/her, it’s cheating.
