A remark heard the other day highlights the confusion surrounding those who are considered “nice.”
“I hate to be the one to tell her she’s wrong. She’s so nice. Someone else ought to have to tell her.”
Here was a woman
- who, apparently, was wrong.
- who was considered wrong in the eyes of the speaker.
- YET, there was a hesitancy on the part of the speaker to inform the woman of her error because “she’s so nice.”
MANY TIMES–particularly in the times in which we now live–those who smile and are “nice” believe they will lessen the number of confrontations with those who disagree with them…
…BECAUSE they are “nice“–and few want to confront a person who is pleasant and cheerful and “nice.”
Acting “nice” is often a STRATEGY.
It has been a successful strategy employed for years by those who control the buildings we call the churches.
“Nice” has to do with a person’s outward personality or appearance or behavior.
“Nice” has NOTHING to do with a person’s intentions.
“Nice” is also a judgment many make–but are not too sure they made the RIGHT call.
How many times has the reader been asked, “He (or she) seemed nice, didn’t he (or she)?”
A great many believe that a witch is mean.
BUT, a witch can be “nice“–and in many cases, IS.
But that doesn’t make what a witch does any less of an abomination in the eyes of God.
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD”
Being “nice” is a strategy not only used by those who want to be liked, BUT ALSO by those who have other, darker motives and want to appear to be “NICE.”
Con men are almost universally described by their victims as “nice guys” or nice ladies.”
Just something the reader may want to keep in mind.
HAS the reader ever heard someone say, “I’m too nice.”
WHY does the reader suppose that person said that?
DOES the reader often give the “benefit of the doubt” to someone who appears to be “nice“?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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.”
