Say The Right Thing But Do The Wrong Thing.

So many people will say they are a Christian or they attend church regularly, but in reality they continue to make wrong choices about the way they live their lives. 1st John 2:4 tells us that people are liars that say they know God, but do not keep His commandments.

1st John 2:4, “He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.”

Worshiping Things Rather Than God is A Wrong Choice.

God made us to worship Him, but we will quickly make a wrong choice to worship things that are not God. It is in our nature to worship. The problem is that instead of worshiping God we will worship the other woman, our job, our car, or even ourselves. Romans 1:25 tells us that people will change the truth of God into a lie and worship the creature more than God.

Romans 1:25, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.”

Hating People That Remind Us Of Our Wrong Choice.

When we are in sin we become resentful of people that reminds us of the dire consequences of our adultery, overeating, hatefulness, self-pride, etc. We can get right hateful of someone that is righteous and tells us or reminds us of the truth and the consequences of our sin. 1st John 3:12 advises us that Cain killed his brother Abel because he was hateful of his brother’s righteousness.

1st John 3:12, “Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother’s righteous.”
