He said, “Behold, I have undertaken to speak to the Lord. Suppose twenty are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of twenty I will not destroy it.” Then he said, “Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of ten I will not destroy it. ”And the LORD went his way, when he had finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place.- Genesis 18:31-33 ESV
Galatians 5:9 puts it simply: A little leaven leavens the whole lump. The NLT transliterates this way: This false teaching is like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough! The Philosophy of the CLASSROOM in one generation will be the PHILOSPHY of GOVERNMENT in the next. Today we are under constant bombardment and constant pressure to be like the world and CONDONE what the Bible calls evil. Christians marching for the WORLDs causes?
Leader, Abraham bargained with God to find BUT 10 Righteous to Save Sodom and He couldn’t even find 1- He saved LOTT because of ABRAHAM- see Genesis 19:22, 29. Lott made the choice of moving into the plains, THEN he pitched his tent towards Sodom and NOW he was living in Sodom. “What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace”; John Wesley. It is almost IMPOSSIBLE to live in the midst of society that is so TWISTED without becoming corrupted ourselves.
Conduit, we eventually DO in person what we CONDONE in our HEART and MIND. The very first Psalm tells us this; blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; Notice the progression; Listening to those in the World, Standing around with those in the WORLD-maybe going to a woman’s March or BLM protest…then, you are sitting at the table talking about Social Justice. The CURE: BUT HIS DELIGHT is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night! (Ps 1:1-2) Meditate on HIS WORD, HIS LAW and HIS WAY- Jesus is the answer!
