Wrong Is Wrong

Whenever we want to do something we know isn’t right, it’s interesting how we quickly come up with all the justifications we need to make it “okay.” We tell ourselves Satan’s lies: “Well, everyone else is doing it,” “It’s not like I do this every day,” “The Bible doesn’t really spell it out that clearly,” or “It’s okay as long as I’m not hurting anyone.” But herein lies the problem. You can talk yourself into doing anything you want to do and rationalize all you want, but in the end, wrong is still wrong, and all the excuses in the world won’t make it right. That’s because wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it and right is right even if no one is doing it. Satan doesn’t care how he separates you from God, just as long as he does, because then he wins! There is no such thing as a “good excuse” to sin, because sin will keep you out of the kingdom. The Bible says in Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." James 1:12-15 has quite a bit to say about temptation: “Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, ‘I am being tempted by God,’ for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.” No matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you always have the choice to turn around. Accept responsibility, ask for forgiveness, and move forward listening to God’s voice . . . and only His voice.
