THERE IS NONE GOOD
Here are a few of the biggest lies told in the end times.
“He’s a good man.”
“She’s a good person.”
“They’re good people.”
IF one believes the Bible (a decidedly minority view in the times in which we live), then one KNOWS there are NONE good.
“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”
There are a few variations of this VERY popular lie.
One variation is one that begins with “I can’t believe…”
As in “I can’t believe that so-and-so could be so [insert a word: cruel, mean, devious, etc.]”
IF one believes the Bible, one KNOWS men are capable of any and all depravity.
“They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
There’s another variation that goes something like “He has a good heart” or “She’s a good-hearted woman.”
IF one believes the Bible, one KNOWS that no one’s heart is good.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”
What makes this lie so prevalent is that it is not only told to other people, it’s also a lie which people tell themselves.
“I’m a good person!”
“I promise I’ll be good.”
“I’ll be so good to him/her.”
“I didn’t mean to hurt her. From now on, I’ll be good!”
“Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.”
The lie of “good people” is told over and over because it is believed.
It is believed because most people DO NOT want to believe they are not good. Even many murderer claim they are kind to their mothers.
There is no goodness in man, who is fallen through sin. The only goodness in a person comes IF they put their trust in Jesus Christ for eternal salvation. THEN, the Holy Spirit takes up residence in the believer.
The believer is still composed of wicked, sinful flesh. But with God’s Spirit indwelling, there is, at last, something good inside.
“Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.”
Is the reader a “good person”?
How does he know?
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
