April 16 "For the foolish person will speak foolishness, and his heart will work iniquity: to practice ungodliness, TO UTTER ERROR AGAINST THE LORD..." Isaiah 32:6 What is "uttering error against the Lord" ? There are two forms of uttering "error against the Lord." The first is the mindless taking of his Name in disdain. It is remarkable how common expressions of anger or frustration express themselves in profaning the Name of Jesus Christ. Have you ever wondered why "Jesus Christ" is the common "swear word?" Why don't people instead swear "oh Allah!" or "oh Cali!" or "oh Buddha"? Why is the name of Jesus Christ, and only that Name, so maligned and used so mindlessly? It's because one of Satan favorite delights is moving upon the hearts of the foolish to utter words belittling the Name of Jesus Christ. It should be obvious that this is the work of Satan, because it is the name of Jesus, and only Jesus, that is used as an epithet. The second form of uttering "error against the Lord" is promoting the rejection of the Word of God, the Bible. This is a generation like no other in out-and-out blasphemy against the Word of God, refusing to allow him the authority of his Word. To murder a child in its mother's womb is a grievous act against the Biblical command (not suggestion, the command) "thou shalt not commit murder." Satan makes every effort to convince society that the child in its mother's womb is not yet a human being, so that killing the child is ok. That's a lie from "the father of lies." Jesus himself said of Satan: "When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, FOR HE IS A LIAR AND THE FATHER OF IT." John 8:44 America was founded by and upon Almighty God and his Word, but America has allowed into her country those who have disdain toward the Word of God. The Word of God commands, not suggests, it commands: "You shall have NO OTHER GODS before me." Exodus 20:3 The god of Islam is "another" god, a slap in the face of the one true God who is the creator and sustainer of all that is, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God commands that we allow NO OTHER GODS into our midst, and to do so is the greatest possible expression of "error against the Lord." Satan uses the word "tolerance" to convince people that they must accept this "other god." It's a lie, it's a lie most are accepting. Tolerating abomination against God is the epitome of foolishness, the defiance of the One who will give each one his next breath. Obviously there is another terrible proclamation in the land that once belonged to the God of the Bible, and this is the elephant in the room - the legalization of the abominations of Sodom and Gomorrah. The first chapter of the Book of Romans clearly states that the lust of a man with a man or a woman with a woman is an abomination to God. Satan's counter-attack upon God's Word is to convince society that everyone should be permitted to "love" whomever they choose. Oh how that sounds good, doesn't it! But again, it's a lie from the father of lies. Lust is not love. Sexual attraction is not love. A married man may be strongly attracted to another woman aside from his wife, but he is not permitted to act on that lust. The same holds true in homosexuality. A man who is attracted to another man is not permitted to act upon that lust, and to do so is an act of out-and-out rebellion against Almighty God. A thief is not permitted to follow his temptation, and those who do end up in prison. A murderer is not permitted to indulge his desire, and those who do end up in prison. A homosexual is not permitted to indulge his lust, and today he'll get away with it in this society, but he will not get away with it before God. And before God he WILL stand and he will see the utter folly and abomination of his choices. What is it "to utter error against the Lord?" Look at the state of society today and what you see is that utterance in all its glory.
