2/25/2010 - The Danger of Morality Creep Leviticus 18:1-4
The Danger of Morality Creep
Reference: Leviticus 18:1-4 Then the Lord said to Moses, 2 “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. I am the Lord your God. 3 So do not act like the people in Egypt, where you used to live, or like the people of Canaan, where I am taking you. You must not imitate their way of life. 4 You must obey all my regulations and be careful to obey my decrees, for I am the Lord your God."
Why is this happening in the church today? Because we have not done what God commanded in this scripture. We have become just like the world we live in (same divorce rate, same porn addictions, same materialism).
I can justify it by reminding myself that there is a lot that I don’t allow, and there is. The problem is, as the world gets worse and worse, the line I draw keeps getting dragged toward the dark side. The line is still far from the edge of evil, but it is been pulled in that direction. If I allow myself 50% of what the world accepts as OK, my 50% is not where it was 10 years ago. Society has changed and, sadly, so have I.
I have to remind myself that God is not looking for relative holiness. He is not asking me to simply be better than this world, He is asking me to be holy--to let Him set the standard.
