Separating Morality


With all the pending issues pressed against Christians today, it is difficult at best to post a position.  It is one thing to tolerate one behavior or lifestyle and quite another to condone it. The powers to be insist we condone various behaviors even though our conscience through the church, through the Bible teachers against it.

At one time, Joshua came up against a similar issue. Thereafter he stated, Joshua 24:15

And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

And friends, that is where it is at.  Either we love you, bring ourselves into servitude or not.  Nor can we apologize for the world.  It is one thing to love people, and detest behavior and another to advocate it and endorse it.

In short, the people we should love.  However, we should teach against some behaviors. This means clearly that we are caught in the middle.  There is really no neutral ground.

No, I am not saying to preach against people.  I am saying to speak on behalf or for the Lord and his teachings.

You may not like it, but this requires a separation.  Of course, no one is for violence or hatred and still has love in his heart.  Yet, greater love requires one to speak the truth, the same as when our Lord, the Christ proclaimed himself.  There is but one truth and that is Christ and he is truth because of love.

Thus, that is where we should point.  We should guide others into the haven of eternity through Christ as he preach via love.

Too, the value of love required an obedience from us to him and to others.  In this way, we separate morality.  In the end there should be a difference from one as opposed to another.  This is in word and in deed.
