Permissiveness & Control
'Permissiveness is moral mutiny.' ~ anon
At the Sermon on the Mount Jesus first taught virtue to the masses. This was His priority to a world sunk into moral dungeons.
Jesus is still far more interested in man's behavior than extending a man's knowledge.
Virtue is a divine seed within a man. Does he even realise this?
- God has not called us for impurity but holiness. ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:7
- Abstain from every form of evil. ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:22
- Let every one who names the name of the Lord depart from wickedness. ~ 2 Timothy 2:19b
Why would anyone bother with purity, pagan or Christian alike when impurity melts resolve and delights eyes?
There is laid up for each of us who believe, who stands strong to the end - the Crown of Righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge will award to His faithful servants who have longed for His return. ~ 2 Timothy 4:8
