Reprobate Mind

“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” (Romans 1:28).

I’m a dumb person. Meaning I take literally what I see and read. If it reads good, it means good. If it reads bad, it means bad. More so if it is from the Bible. Sometime, where things are not too obvious, pray for wisdom and ask God to open our eyes and mind to seek the truth. Thank God many things in the bible is straight forward. It’s either Yes or No. Occasionally, Maybe. Always get it from the “Horse Mouth”, which is the Bible.

I do not understand why people wants to twist and turn God words to please people! Are we God pleaser or crowd pleaser! BEWARE!
There will be many false prophets and teachers who appears wise and of spiritual authourity that come forth and teach false teachings, twisting God’s word.

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.” (2 Peter 2:1-3).

I’m not a Pastor nor a “trained” theologian. God’s words in the Bible are generally simple enough for all whose mind had been opened by those who seek him to understand. More so, ask for wisdom and guidance. Ask. Ask. Ask. Check. Check. Check.

God Help Us.
