IF WE'RE HONEST BY FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI
Jesus said, "Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and ALL these things will be given to you as well! Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
The Bible was written with a kingdom mindset behind it. As we interpret God's Word though our filter of democracy & capitalism, we naturally want more choices and personal liberty. That's not how the Hebrews and early Christians interpreted God's Word.
As Chris followers, we're part of the "kingdom of God." Our American mindset has a hard time comprehending what absolute power looks like when it is completely just, pure and honest.
The laws of God’s Word aren’t superseded or changed by popular opinion, polls or so called personal rights. God’s laws are set in our best interest and they are set for our protection. We forget that God's holiness comes before our rights and our feelings.
"So don’t be deceived. Don’t conform to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect in the will of God. -The Apostle Paul (in Romans 12)
Is our filter on life God's Word or democracy?
