Dogs

We love dogs and sometimes we love them more than people.  I see people walk their dogs and play with their dogs.  To them, the dogs are members of the family.  We dress are dogs up in human like clothing or we try to dress them up just like us.  We have competitions where we judge our dogs or compare the grooming and training of our dogs to see who has the best dog.  We mourn the lost of our dogs and cry over their leaving us but we soon replace the dog with another one.  I watch people run behind their dogs picking up its poo with scented bags to mask the odor of it.  We create places where our dogs are accepted and not judged also.  We defend our dogs against those who don’t see our dogs the same way we do.  We even create groups that all think the same about our dogs; even to the point of creating a “leader”.  These “leaders” make us feel ok about our dogs.  They, in away encourage the loving of our dogs.  Just as long as we support these “leaders”, they will never speak against our dogs.  We convict those that stand against our dogs because now the whole world is filled with dogs and dog lovers.  We create and sale food for our dogs.  It is more important for us to feed our dogs than our fellow man.  A person could kill a man and not serve time but to try and kill a dog you will get life in prison.  We rally for our dogs.  We forget that no matter how much we train a dog is still a dog and it would and will eat its own vomit.  It is a beast that will do anything to survive, even turn on its owner ( I know from experience). Now, replace the word “dogs” with “sins”. No matter how hard we try to feel better about our sins, it is still an unrighteous act against GodJesus Christ is the only answer to sin not making up your own view of God and what God requires or what He will overlook.  That type of thinking is what gave us the “white lie”.

Matthe7:6“Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces.

Proverbs 26:11 As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.12 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes?
There is more hope for a fool than for him.

Romans 1

1Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— 2the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures 3regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David, 4and who through the Spirit[a] of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God[b] by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. 5Through him and for his name’s sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith. 6And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

11I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— 12that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith. 13I do not want you to be unaware, brothers, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) in order that I might have a harvest among you, just as I have had among the other Gentiles.

14I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. 15That is why I am so eager to preach the gospel also to you who are at Rome.

16I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 17For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,[c] just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”[d]

18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.

28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
