Daily Fountain 2017 - Holding The Truth In Unrighteousness







Friday February 10



Bible Reading:     Romans 1: 18 - 32



Topic:         Holding The Truth In Unrighteousness



The reading today shows us the subtle ways in which apostasy grows.



What is Apostasy?

It is the renunciation of a religious faith or abandonment of a previous conviction and loyalty.



The World today is filled with religious and moral apostasy.



Homosexuality and Lesbianism have gained legality in many Countries today, and as if that is not enough, these heinous evils are seeking global approval even in the churches



How did that degree of apostasy start?

It started as our passage today shows us by "people holding the truth in unrighteousness" (v. 18) - that is religious hypocrisy and sinful permissiveness.



Again it started by People not matching their lives with the theoretical knowledge of God they profess (vs. 21 - 23) and then it escalated into a full deliberate lie and reprobate mind (vs. 24 - 28)



Therefore let us watch our lives and ask God to deal with every moral weakness in us before it escalates into apostasy.



Let's examine ourselves to see if there is any way we are holding the truth in unrighteousness. If we don't, we shall fall into the same error of apostasy.



Prayer:

Lord, deliver me from the unfortunate life of holding the truth in unrighteousness, Amen



Memory verse:   Romans 1: 16

"For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness."
