Sins of society

 

Luke 16:15

King James Version

15 And he said unto them, 

Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; 

but God knoweth your hearts: 

for that which is highly esteemed among men 

is abomination in the sight of God.


The Holy Spirit planted the idea this morning.

The sins of society.

What are the sins?


Pride.

Proverbs 16:5

King James Version

5 Every one that is proud in heart 

is an abomination to the Lord

though hand join in hand, 

he shall not be unpunished.


Peer pressure.

Romans 12:2

King James Version

2 And be not conformed to this world

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, 

that ye may prove what is that good, 

and acceptable, 

and perfect, 

will of God.


Permissiveness.

James 4:17

King James Version

17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, 

and doeth it not, 

to him it is sin.


Perversion.

Galatians 5:19-21

King James Version

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, 

which are these

Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, 

emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, 

revellings, and such like

of the which I tell you before, 

as I have also told you in time past

that they which do such things 

shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


Pretension.

John 8:44

King James Version

44 Ye are of your father the devil, 

and the lusts of your father ye will do

He was a murderer from the beginning, 

and abode not in the truth, 

because there is no truth in him

When he speaketh a lie, 

he speaketh of his own: 

for he is a liar, 

and the father of it.


Possessions.

Matthew 6:19

King James Version

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth

where moth and rust doth corrupt, 

and where thieves break through and steal:


Possession.

1 Peter 5:8

King James Version

8 Be sober, 

be vigilant

because your adversary the devil, 

as a roaring lion, 

walketh about, 

seeking whom he may devour:


Philosophy.

Colossians 2:8

King James Version

8 Beware lest any man spoil you 

through philosophy and vain deceit, 

after the tradition of men, 

after the rudiments of the world, 

and not after Christ.


The solution?

SEEK the LORD, with all your heart.

PRAY to know GOD.

And He will take it from there.
