Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Many today live immoral lives and are quite proud of themselves. Paul gives a partial list of those that will not inherit the Kingdom God. It is a list of immoral people. We live in a culture that claims there are no moral absolutes, therefore many believe the lie, and continue in their immoral behavior. The Bible is quite clear in many places that the immoral will not see heaven.
Many “christians” know what the word says and yet they continue with their immoral behavior claiming to be obedient to God. So many living a life that is against everything that God teaches in His word, both in and out of the church Jesus died for, and wondering why life is so chaotic and full of misery.
Many complain about the state of our nation today, and blame it on the corrupt government. Others blame it on the intolerant religious people. Yet others blame it on the moral decline of a once great nation. They’re all right. Because, moral decline and decay are rampant in American culture, and “christian” culture as well. The dividing line between “christian” and non-christian behavior has blurred. Immoral behavior is acceptable everywhere, in every walk of life.
There is an answer to all of this chaos and misery… STOP IT! Turn back to God and His ways and stop believing the lies of the evil one. “In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent.” Acts 17:30 God will not overlook our ignorant, immoral behavior. God commands all people everywhere to repent. We need to stop being proud of our immoral behavior, repent and follow Jesus.
