“The Great Sin - To Forget God”
by Art Sadlier   
June 26th, 2017

If it were possible to describe our society in a few words those words would be, they have "forgotten God". That is not something that God takes lightly! In Pslam 9:17 we read "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God". The Lord equates wickedness with just plain old forgetting God! Hell is for those who forget God.

Today the Word of God is both foregotten and rejected. Everything the Bible teaches is today rejected by our society, from marriage to immorality to homosexuality and to gender identity. What the Bible teaches about creation is laughed at and what the Bible teaches about sin and salvation is scorned. 

The scripture pronounces judgment on sensuality and lust, today we live in a society totally given over to sensuality. It jumps out at you on the TV set, the internet is drowning in pornography, our women have forgotten cover themselves, even some who claim to be Christians.

We as a society have not only forgotten God, we have made our own gods to take the place of the true God. Our society is busy worshipping the gods of gold and silver, the gods of pleasure, entertainment and lust and perhaps most predominatley of all, the gods of materialism. Things - things - things - the lives of those who have forgotten God are bound up and wrapped around things. Sometimes good things, but things that replace our time for God, that replace our dependancy upon God, things replace our affection for God.

This is the mark of unregenerate people, it is the mark of Laodicea, the mark of the last days evangelical church. We read about this last days apostate evangelical church in Matthew 7:20-23. "Wherefore by their fruits (not their profession) ye shall know them. Not everyone that sayeth unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many shall say unto me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."

We also read about this same Church in Revelation 3:14-17, "And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:".

I think about Paul's exhortation to the Corinthians where he said to them, "Examine yourselves whether ye be in the faith..."  Evangelical, listen to this exhortation from Paul! Don't be among the multitudes of todays evangelicals who are deceived about their salvation.
