Another MP caught selling favours for cash! Patrick Mercer M.P. offers to lobby for £1000 a day, even asking favourable questions in the House of Commons on behalf of those who will pay.
Again and again the saying that...
Basically... deep down Mankind is good.
...is shown to be totally false. For rather than stating that this or that man is an exception to the rule... God has says...
Romans 3:10-12 + 23
10 - There is no one righteous, not even one;
11 - there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.
12 - All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.”
. . . . . . . . . .
23 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
For after all of the recent scandals regarding our Ox-bridge elite... they’re at it again. And don’t for one moment think we are any better than they, for it has been proven on numerous occasions that when men from any class... secure positions of trust, even positions that afford them an opportunity to gain riches, attain their fleshly desires or additional power over others... they are seen to cross the line to secure them. Now if as some say “Mankind is basically good” why do we spend so much of our time writing laws to restrain such madness?
The truth is just as scripture states: Mankind is fallen...
The [human] heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?
For as soon as Mankind fell, God immediately barred us from entering into eternal life, knowing full well that having attained the knowledge of good and evil, just as history confirms... we would more often than not choose the evil...
And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”
We need to understand that God is ‘never’ going to allow us to enter into His eternal Kingdom in such a fallen state, and defile it as we clearly have this once beautiful Earth. This is why Jesus said...
You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You must be born again.’
Let me be frank, would you want the Islamic, machete wielding Woolwich murderers living in your neighbourhood, or rent out your spare room to a known pervert to gaze daily upon your wife and darling children? Then knowing your own secret sins, burning passions and strange desires... do you really think that the God who reads your heart like an open book, is going to let you into His eternal kingdom unchanged?
That is why ‘your heart must be changed’, else make no mistake... you will be locked outside.
Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
9 - Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men
10 - nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
If this speaks to you in any way, I counsel you to do this... cast far from you the cloak of lies that you have used to cover and excuse your sin, and allow a battered and bruised conscience to do its work... and drag them out into the light of day. Because long ago, before you left your mother’s womb God put it their for this very purpose. That it might lead you along a goodly path and that if you should stray, it might cry-out to you night and day until you acknowledge your sin and return by the way of repentance.
Do not fear it, for it speaks to you for your good and not to your hurt... and just as you lead your children to understand their error, so does a loving God lead you. For far too long now you have allowed fear to deny the Holy Spirit access to your heart, turn to Him now and He will be gracious, why should you refuse to be healed?
When you listen to your conscience and allow the Holy Spirit in, He will speak to you of righteousness, judgement and sin. Do not be afraid... for the end of these things is peace, joy and forgiveness leading to eternal life. At first you shall know sorrow leading to a choice, choose wisely for it is for your soul...
2 Corinthians 7:10
1). Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret,
2). But worldly sorrow brings death.
Neither hesitate nor resist the promptings of the Holy Spirit... or step back into the darkness from wench you came... because of what has been revealed to you... even your sin. But rather be strong and very courageous because your God is with you... allow your heart to break and you will never be the same again.
10 - Love and faithfulness meet together;
righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11 - Faithfulness springs forth from the earth,
and righteousness looks down from heaven.
And as your heart breaks, the chains that once bound you will shatter, for a cry of repentance so strong shall well-up from deep within your soul, that it will force every foul spirit that once lodged there to flee. And your cry of repentance shall ring throughout the Heavens... reaching into very throne-room of God. THIS is the cry that God answers, and these are the pleas that will turn His eyes towards you!
My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.
I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
For He is ever merciful to the cry of the repentant sinner, and will answer all who call on Him in honesty and truth. Forget about stale religion, incense and dog collars... FOR OUR GOD IS THE LIVING GOD and He is attentive to your cry. The sacrifices of liars and the pomp of Cathedrals and institutional Churches are a stench in His nostrils, but He is close to you and His favour and salvation is near.... even in your mouth and on your lips.
9 - If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 - For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.
The beginning of these things is to acknowledge your sin, and this begins in the heart. Take courage... your future is waiting for you.
