Excusing Bad Behavior: The World’s Justification

JustificationJUSTIFICATION OR EXCUSES?

The world will seek to justify itself.

The world will always search for a reason to excuse inexcusable behavior it commits.

One of it’s favorites: “IF we don’t do it, someone else will!”

Krauthammer Hits Scalise ‘Double Standard’: Obama ‘Didn’t Just Wander Into’ Rev. Wright’s Church Once [VIDEO] – One of Satan’s–and any five-year-old’s–favorite arguments.”They’re doing it, why can’t we?”

Americans were treated to a heaping helping of this type of non-Christian thinking during the Cold War.

“We have to do it–or the Russians will!”

“If we don’t do it then the commies will!”

It” could be anything from supporting brutal dictators, assassination, murder, running drugs: it was all justified by someone else doing it (or in the Cold War version, by just the threat of someone else doing it).

The world will never run out of reasons why it is wicked.

DOES the reader excuse bad behavior because clever excuses are offered?

THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

THE GOSPEL

“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

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
