You hear a lot of people say the world has gone crazy! They are not all together wrong. How can so many people be out of their minds all at once? If you take an overview of the course the world has been on, you will see that they have gotten further and further from God.
Romans 1:21 They knew God, but they did not give Him the honor that belongs to Him. Instead, their thoughts became complete nonsense, and their empty minds filled with nonsense.
When a man has no faith in God, he becomes a target of the devil and the devil persuades him of things he cannot even explain. Jesus was the Son of God and He told His people the Jews the truth and in response they determined to kill Him.(John 8:40) Without the truth it is impossible for a man to be in his right mind. Jesus was pretty tolerant of His people because in reality He was dealing with the devil.(John 8:44) Jesus had to deal with these people about two-thousand years ago and since then things have gotten worse! Ministers are taking same-sex spouses, the world supports men wanting to be women, and parents want their children reassigned to another gender.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise(woke), they became fools(morons).
Some churches think that protecting these fools is their obligation, they think they are acting in love. If they read First Corinthians chapter thirteen, the love chapter, they would see that love does not rejoice(celebrate) iniquity. A lot of folks have become “wise” and they challenge God and His Word. Christians are a strange lot, they can see evil coming before it arrives. The world tells the “Bible thumpers” to mind their own business because what the Christians call evil, they call good.
Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind.
A reprobate is a mind that has been modified from the truth, it has been damaged. A reprobate mind has lost its ability to judge between right and wrong. In essence, God says: if this is what you want then you can have it, telling you the truth over and over will do no good. People who are called “queer” welcome the title because they are not in their right mind. Jesus prayed to the Father that He would keep(guard from loss or injury) all those who believe in Him. And then He tells us how the Father would do this, separate them from the world with the truth. The Word is truth.
Romans 12:2 Do not be molded to the world but be changed by renovating your mind.
When you renew your mind you will begin to think like God thinks and the way the world thinks becomes offensive. The saddest part of all of this is no one has to be overcome with the devil and his evil ways. The world is full of the evil ways of the devil and yet Jesus destroyed all the works of the devil. People do not have to serve the devil but they are too ignorant not to. God loves the world and all the believers have a mandate from God to tell everyone God loves them and demonstrate this love.
