Moving the goal post.

For centuries we have based our morality, laws and virtue on God’s word found in the Bible,

For centuries, I am not talking about yesterday but centuries.

Yesterday is this, centuries are this on a time scale.

Recently, my church pastor in a teaching sermon mentioned what is righteous and just regarding the judgement of God.

This means when it comes to judgement day, mankind’s behaviour will be judged on what is accordingly to be right and fair.

If you are a believer, then this judgement would be fair.

We see many examples of God’s judgement in the past based on what is believed to be right and fair.

The issues I see is the belief on what is right and what fear is have changed.

Let me give you some examples,

Yesterday, if you committed a crime against society, you were apprehended, judged, and punished in a just and fair way, according to the rules accepted by society.

We all know, for example we have speed limits on our roads.

They are there as a guide and not a target but for some they are a hindrance, because they know better and will drive faster.

These drivers are often caught and will accept their punishment because it’s the law and deemed to be accepted and just.

Here’s the problem and I quote from the book of Judges 21

 In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit.

These are the conditions we see in the world today as many reject the word of God.

We see a population now believing they can drive not just their cars but their lives the way they see fit.

We are seeing the rejection of God in all levels of our culture as the world does it the way they see fit.

The Bible points to the second coming of Jesus who will judge the nations but hang on.

The world no longer accepts the principles he will use to judge the earth.

We see this in all facets of life when people don’t accept something they move the goalposts.

So often we see it being used by this and subsequent governments and you do it yourself in everyday life.

Moving the goalposts is an informal fallacy in which evidence presented in response to a specific claim is dismissed and some other (often greater) evidence is demanded.

 That is, after an attempt has been made to score a goal, the goalposts are moved to exclude the attempt.

Society today spurred on by many radical groups like the jumbled alphabet group LGBTQI+, the women’s right, Black Lives Matter, pro-abortion groups in fact anyone or any group opposed to decency, democracy, and Gods law are excellent at moving goal posts for their own agendas.

So, it’s true, without God, everyone is doing what they see ft and what is right.

I’m curious to know what happens when their strong belief of what is right clashes with a similar belief, but believe they are right.

 Now with everybody doing what they see fit to do, everyone has different goalposts.

When it comes to the law of the land where do you get the base line. Who is responsible for making it, good grief imagine how it would look if everyone insisted the law reflected their differing forms of beliefs?

Back to Gods’ values on morality, law, and life, these are now so far removed from what society accepts.

It hasn’t moved the goalposts, it destroyed them.

So how dare he judge us on the premise of an outdated belief system which no one believes in anymore

This is the world we have become, but thanks for popping in Jesus, but who are you to judge us on what you see is righteous and just, because we have our own,

HMMM Let me ponder that for a moment.

To those of you who say the laws of God are no longer relevant, do so at your own peril.

Your new laws, your new way of doing what is right in your own eyes is meaningless.

The law of God handed to Moses were carved in stone meaning they cannot be changed.

If you are reading this, and you are one who rejects the word of God, then can I say, take another look, take a moment to think about whether you want to live in a world and to be honest with you, a world which is so unsettled, so unstable, a world where tomorrow you have to run with the crowd, or be left behind.

Pick up the scriptures and read for yourself why God has etched his laws in stone, why Gods people have them etched in their hearts and submit to the word of GOD.

For centuries we have based civilization on these laws,

What makes you think you are wiser than the one who created the earth for you to live on

You CAN change the world, your world, you can stop being the driver in a car speeding towards an Ethiopian intersection.

Let God be your driver, Let God be you reason and accept God is righteous and just.
