Church Gossip

Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed arbiter of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose in the other members’ private lives. Church members were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup truck parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon.

She commented to George and others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing.

George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just walked away. He didn’t explain, defend, or deny; he said nothing.

Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred’s house… and left it there all night!

Grace and peace to you from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Thessalonians 2 (NIV)

A couple days after posting last week’s blog I realized there was something else that I should have added.

If you do not believe in God and do not believe in the evil one then you are listening to the evil ones words. The evil one does not want you to believe in God and tricks you in telling you that the evil one does not exist. The evil one tells the Atheists and the Agnostics that they already know the difference between good and evil between right and wrong and it’s through this manipulation that Satan turns people away from God.

Simply put believe in God resist the devil and the evil one will not come near you and then you would hear God’s words and not the evil one. If you decide not to believe in God then Satan will always have your ear there is no in between. There is no I choose not to believe in God and the devil does not exist either so I can live my life as I wish because that is exactly what the evil one wants you to believe.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7 (NRSV)

God gave all people free will so we could come to God with unconditional love the same kind of love we have for our families our husbands or wives and our children.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1 (NKJV)

and

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1John 4:8 ESV

Dramatic Ending

We only have to decide…do we listen to God or the evil one?
