18 Jan “Living in a Gray World”
From what I hear (I never watched it, but read a few reviews), there was a very sinful, sexually suggestive movie that caused quite a stir last year. From what I understand, the thrust of the movie was such that it suggested the following: It is true there are standards that are black and white regarding morality. Some things are acceptable, but others are not. The movie condemned the thought that life was just simply a “black and white” morality code. Example: Why should a man be married to just one woman? Why couldn’t we have multiple partners? What’s wrong with homosexual relationships? Why not “flirt” with the opposite sex? What’s wrong with suicide? Killing babies by abortion? They are not human until they come out of the birth canal, and then they should only be allowed to live IF they are perfectly healthy. Euthanasia? Certainly old people who have outlived their usefulness are just wasting the earth’s resources. Therefore, there should be a humane method to help them pass on … if you choose that thought pattern, good luck … you will be facing death by some method soon enough, because you are not young and healthy!
That is our world today! People do not like absolutes. They don’t want to be told you have to have a certain code of morality. You should obey the Ten Commandments. You don’t have to go to church. The whole outdoors can be your sanctuary. In other words, “We want to live in a GRAY WORLD. We don’t want moral absolutes. We want to ‘live and let live’ without condemnation!”
1 John 1:6-7 — “If we say we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. BUT, if we walk in the light as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanses us from all sin.”
We are told in the Bible that there is still a relevancy to the Ten Commandments. There are moral and spiritual absolutes. You can’t walk in spiritual darkness and expect to be “OK.” There will be a time if you walk and practice “gray,” life around you will become black, and you won’t be able to see anything clearly. If we don’t practice truth, we are lying to ourselves, our family, and those we influence.
Dear ones, only the Blood of Jesus Christ will wash away your sins. You don’t have forever to live. “It is appointed unto man, once to die, and after this the judgment.” Hebrews 9:27
From my perspective, living gray will leave you unhappy, lifeless, scared of your future, and afraid of your present. You will live an existence, but never be truly happy
No GRAY for me! I love Jesus’ Light!
