An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

The Biggest Bigot

(Proverbs 9:8 KJV)  Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.

We are so busy in the modern church trying to fit into a pagan culture and quoting “Judge not” that we forget to read the context of that quote and we ignore the repeated statements about the need to “reprove” (3917b).  The teaching of multiculturalism, “diversity” and “tolerance” is that every culture and activity is equal.  There is no moral or immoral, just differences.  That nonsense has permeated the church to the point that we mindlessly repeat the mantra of the New Age, “Judge not.”

The reason they have made that a mantra is because they need to be corrected, or reproved.  They are polluting our culture with their relativism and moral decay.  They want to do it their way and don’t want to hear your bigoted opinions.  Of course in their world God is the biggest bigot.

So?  Remember that one of God’s attributes is holiness.  He has standards that He expects us to live and proclaim.  You can’t do that without stepping on a few toes.  You can tell the righteous by how they respond.
