Romans Chapter 12

21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

“Here little baby, come over here to Daddy!”

“No, little baby. Come over here to Mommy!”

The other day i mentioned about how since Jesus told us it is a sin to look at a woman and lust after her, and because of that we know it is a sin to actually commit adultery with the woman. Worse, it is an abomination. Why? Because we know it is a sin, and yet some people still choose to do it, anyway. It’s worse than sinning, it is a whole nother level. Because it is willful disobedience. When we know it is a sin to do something, and we do it anyway, that makes it a worse sin, that makes it an abomination, because we willfully disobey God, even though we know better. It’s kind of like knowing that it is wrong to rob a bank, but thinking, maybe you could get away with it, and robbing the bank anyway. And no, you cannot get away with robbing a bank. These are the fruits of a wicked imagination.

And people who are willfully disobedient to the King aren’t going to get very far in the Kingdom. Only obedient servants are allowed in. People who willfully disobey God’s Laws are criminals in His Kingdom.

Often times i think about how God is Pure Goodness! How amazing! And how horrible and filthy and disgusting we must seem to God. Because we live in the mud! Our world is dirty, and we are dirty and stinky, and so we must be absolutely reviling to God! And not just because of the filth of the flesh, but also because we live in the filth of sin. We are all sinners, and it is this filth of sin that keeps us separated from God. Because sin cannot exist in the presence of Pure Goodness! Darkness cannot exist in the Light! So this is very key knowledge for us: unless we stop sinning and become sin free, forgiven by Jesus, God will be separated from us. God can’t be indwelling Spirit in us, unless we become forgiven. This is why we preach the gospel of repentance, and remission. To develop a relationship with God, we must first cleanse ourselves of unrighteousness. We become forgiven of our sins, and we stop sinning.

So therefore, make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Because i have grown to learn what Paul meant in Romans

Romans Chapter 14

14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing
unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean,
to him it is unclean.

Now Paul is actually discussing what people eat in this context, but it also applies to other meanings. Because i have come to understand that there really isn’t anything evil, other than people. The only evil comes from people, and spiritually speaking, from evil spirits. For example, words themselves are not evil, a wood carving by itself is not evil, there is nothing that is inherently evil unto itself. And likewise, music is not evil, and if people are serving God with gladness in their hearts and love for God, who cares what genre of music they listen to? The way some people act about music is they only want to have One World Music – which happens to be their favorite kind of music.

Music, words, and objects are not evil by nature. Evil is created in and comes from the minds of men. Obviously, outright sinning and blasphemous behaviour, and any sin, is unacceptable in the eyes of the Lord. There are many different types of music, from all over the world. Rainbows are made up of lots and lots of colors, not just one.
