Good Morning!

Hi Everyone!  Each day I receive a devotional by Adrian Rogers ~ I believe he is one of the greatest preachers I have ever heard.  Today's devotional hit home with me, as I was debating how to explain the drastic changes our society has adapted to.  How did so many sins get out of whack in this world?  It is because they no longer considered sins.  Here is the devotional - I hope you take the time to read.  Thank you;  Jan

Sin is the Cause; Christ is the Cure!

“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.” Romans 5:12

Some would say that man is but the sum total of his environment and his body chemistry. If he does wrong, it's because he's like a computer that has been programmed wrongly. If he was raised in a bad neighborhood, he shouldn’t be blamed for breaking into stores or smoking dope. Or if he has a vile temper, perhaps he had an overbearing mother.

According to behavioral psychologists, these people may be pitied but not blamed. They may be sick, but they’re not sinful. They may be weak but not wicked. They need some sort of a psychological adjustment rather than salvation.

If we don't make a proper diagnosis, we'll certainly never come up with the right cure. The thing wrong with our society today is we're spending too much time sweeping down cobwebs when we need to be killing spiders. The spider is sin; the cobwebs are the result that we see in society around about us.
