Even if we serve GOD without GOD, such service is a distraction to the actual service. If our service isn't what GOD wants, how GOD wants it, When GOD wants it; for why GOD wants it and through or to whom GOD wants it, it's all a distraction
You'll know that every conversation counts, every image you look upon, every friend you keep, every book you read, every piece of music you listen to, every desire you act upon, every acre of lust, every meter of dust you thread upon, counts. Everything matters and matter is everything!
The truth is the tongue represents our desires and our inner-makeup to life so if we cannot control our desires and the words which we live by, then we have not attained true liberation. If there is evil in the world today, even after salvation, it is by the work of the tongue. James calls it an "unruly evil".
it's also important to state that it is the Christian thing to imitate...to destroy the wrong hierarchies especially those who have no GOD in them. It's the Christian thing to do...destruction of evil for the creation of good is the Christian thing to do.
it is problematic to think that life gave birth to death and death has lived its life haunted by the need to hunt down life. I could go on: roaming my mind for evidence that death is alive and wishes to be the only form of life...scratch that of existence but that’s not the focus or emphasis, here.
Can we run away from temptations? Yes, but we shouldn't because temptations help us tell our proximity to truth, our age in the reprise of faith, our inner state to GOD, our remote state that we are ready to be used by GOD – upon completion; they tell the enemy to be clear because nothing they do can derail us and nothing new can impale our thinking which is set on GOD.
Heck! Who would want a saviour who has no idea of what you should be saved from; who can take away the hurt, by helping, unless they know what the hurt is? The Man – JESUS knows!
Needless to say, to distort our moral standard, the influence must establish a fault in the source of all morality. To get humanity to be immoral, humanity needs to see GOD as unjust – and wrongly so – only then can humanity embrace immorality as though it were a juicy paradise of immortality.
My body needs to be saved, my body is not the saviour of itself. Only those who need no salvation can save, only THE ONE who gives salvation is the saviour of the body. If the body needs salvation, it cannot give salvation.
