“Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”(Rom. 1:22-25).
We look at what’s going on in the world today and say “What happened, everything seems to be falling apart?” What happened is that we abandoned God and chose to follow our worldly ways thinking that we know best. The unfortunate part of this decision is that we are causing our own destruction and along the way taking many innocent victims with us in our fall. Just as in the Garden of Eden we are choosing to believe a lie rather than the truth of God. God is truth and truth always prevails. When we abandon God and His laws and choose to live a lie we create a world that is full of destruction and chaos. Our sin brings about the moral decay that leads to destruction and our own collapse. We will receive the natural penalty that we deserve. “But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the Lord: and be sure your sin will find you out.” (Num. 32:23). There is a natural result from our sin against God and His laws.
