“We live in a different culture now,” a woman told me one day in regard to the Bible, God’s Word. She called herself a Christian, was an avid churchgoer, and related how she thoroughly enjoyed taking notes when listening to her church pastor teach the Bible. What was she getting at with her comment? She was trying to prove to me that God had changed His mind about what He considered sin based on how our culture has changed through the years.
This is a lie straight from the pit of hell, and we are being deceived if we believe this and don’t know any better, we are deceiving ourselves if we know better but don’t want to face up to the truth such that we are convicted and repent, and we are deceiving others if we are telling them this.
I know of and have heard teach the pastor at the church she attends. He teaches the truth. She just didn’t want to believe it.
Here is the truth. Culture DOES change. God and God’s Word DO NOT change. Culture DOES NOT change God. Nor does culture change God’s Word. Those who desire a forever relationship with God, to include eternity in heaven, rather than to be forever apart from God in hell and the lake of fire in everlasting torment, must repent, believe Christ died on the cross for our sins and was raised from the dead, that He is LORD and Savior of our lives, and live NOT according to today’s culture, but live according to GOD and HIS WORD!
If you have been deceived and didn’t know better until now, or if you know better but have been deceiving yourself, and if you have been deceiving others by living according to the lie that culture changes the Lord and His Word, please heed this warning.
The Lord is FOREVER. So is HIS WORD. Those who want to be forever with Him must live by the NEVER-changing truth of glorious God and His awesome Word!
