Poplar Log Church Christ-Notes from the Preacher
1 Cor 6:20 "For you are bought with a
price; therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's"
Today hospitals and rehabilitation centers are full of people who are being
treated for self-induced conditions or habits. Alcohol, tobacco, drugs,
gluttony, lack of exercise, and disregard of basic personal hygiene, that
results in a wide range of health problems that no pill can cure.
1 Cor 4:2 the scriptures say that "It is
required in stewards, that a man be found faithful" Now this verse of
scripture applies to our personal possessions, and our finance. But it
also applies to the management of our own bodies. Today's overwhelming desire to
get as many tattoo's as one can get all over our bodies, totally ignores
God's word that says: "Ye shall not put any markings upon you"
Lev:19:28 Piercings of the ears, nose,
eyebrows, and tongue, are just emulating the practices of the worlds most
primitive Savages. Do people "especially Christians" not see that
this is a ploy of the Devil himself. He is encouraging people who are made
in the image of God to do anything that will take away from what God has created
in his image to mar that beauty. Hair that is dyed blue, green, and yellow or
purple, completes our desire to be complacent with the world,.
Today our men are becoming more like women, or the weaker sex, and women are
becoming more like men, masculine they even try to look like men. It is becoming
harder and harder to determine what sex anyone really is.
But for a Christian a life that is in harmony with God's will also includes
visible testimony of cleanliness, neatness, and orderliness that are gender
specific. We should always live our lives to insure that our bodies always
reflect the character of the one who entrusted it to us. That is God ..........
Remember 1 Corinthians 6:19 "What?
Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
which ye have of God and ye are not your own?"
I am afraid that today too many Christians are ging the way of the world, that
is that broad way that leads to destruction. Are you one of those? Think
