What do you think about? Is your mind preoccupied with matters and things of this earthly life, or does your thinking align with God’s? Here’s a good yardstick – Psalm 1:1-3: Oh, the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand around with sinners, or join in with mockers. But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.(NLT)
(Verse 1 commands us not to listen to the world and its evil teachings. Too many Christians get caught up in nice sounding philosophies, psychology and other modern day theories, designed by the devil to deceive the faithful. Everything from mysticism to mixing pagan Eastern religions with Christianity, from Health and Wealth “Gospel” to overly Charismatic extra-Biblical teachings, should be AVOIDED AT ALL COSTS!
The wicked are not just those who are pagans, who worship the gods of the world or who do not believe in the Christ as the Unitarians do.
The wicked are not just those who chant the name of Buddha or find a god in a monkey, but the wicked are those who remove all mentions of the Blood of Christ from Hymn books and their methodical prayer books.
The wicked are those who get offended by a literal interpretation of the Bible. The wicked are those who go to a service at Christmas and Easter, pick a law to obey, break all the other ones, and then think they are “good enough” to get into Heaven when it is all over.
The wicked are those politicians – both Federal and state, US Military chaplains, black robed judges and school districts, who rebuke, censor, disgrace, remove and dishonor our children, soldiers and people who claim the Name of Christ.
WOE TO THEM! WOE TO THEM! Woe to those who also claim the Name of Christ but then refuse to stand up and be counted when His people are persecuted, so as not to offend pagan religions! Woe to them who have fellowship with the scoffers, sit with them or stand with them in political correctness! Woe is them on Judgment Day!
However, the best part is Verse 2: “but his delight is in the law of the Lord”......
