Title: Have we lost respect?
Post by: Richard OFfill on June 30, 2018, 08:50:02 AM
The devil knows that it is probably expecting too much that the people of God be in favor of evil and against good, but he knows that if he can simply bring them to the point that they cannot distinguish right from wrong, he will have accomplished his purpose. Inasmuch as we cannot effectively convey ideas without words, then if he is going to make it difficult to distinguish between right and wrong, he will have to corrupt the language.

This means that if he can bring us to the point where we have to use the same words to talk about God as we do about the things that are not sacred, then we begin to get confused as to which is which.
I am convicted that, unless we discover who God is and what is expected of us when we come into His presence, it will corrupt not only our relationship with Him, but also every other relationship that we have in the family and in society.

We have generally lost respect for one another because we first lost respect for God. A person who has a right concept of respect and reverence for God will respect and reverence the other relationships in their lives.
(This is from my sermon"Familiarity Breeds Contempt.
