Futile Faith: Placing One’s Faith in the Schemes of the World

Sanke-serpent

“…that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
–Revelation 12:9

MISPLACED FAITH

Man loves to place his faith in that which he can see, hear and/or touch.

This is the primary reason man places his faith for the future in the world, the things of the world and the schemes of the world.

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1John 2:15-16

Some of the schemes of the world include the lottery and insurance.

Many men place their faith in traditions of other men.

“Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.”
–Psalm 146:3

Such traditions include organized religion, government programs and political parties.

Some men place their faith in themselves.

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
–Proverbs 3:5

Again, man loves to place his faith in that which he can see, hear and/or touch.

This is one reason why man clings to routine and places his faith for the future in the things which he sees around him today.

However, all who place their trust in such things are doomed to disappointment–both in this life and the next.

So where is the end times man to place his trust?

There is only one place man can trust.

“In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.”
–Psalm 56:11

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

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

“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.”
-–Romans 1:16
