We live in a time when this conversation is taking place on a grand scale. It started in the Garden of Eden, with the serpent saying something like, โ€œReally? God said that? No, thatโ€™s not right! Hereโ€™s the truth: God is trying to keep you from realizing your full potential. Eat the fruit!โ€

Today it seems that the loudest voices and most often-quoted authorities around us (some of them even in Christian pulpits) have taken up the serpentโ€™s chorus: โ€œWhat God said in the Bible is just plain wrong; we know better, now. Godโ€™s Word is too limiting; it keeps you from becoming who you were really meant to be!โ€

Godโ€™s simple reply is in this verse from Ezekiel: โ€œReally? Think for just a minute about what you just said! Is it my ways that are not just? Isnโ€™t it really your own ways that are unjust?โ€

God Himself is the one who defines right and wrong, just and unjust, good and evil. We are free to disagree with Him, of course. But if we disagree with God on these basic truths, there are inescapable consequences. Everything falls apart, because โ€œGod upholds the universe with His Word of power.โ€

A few verses later He asks another question and follows it with a gracious invitation: โ€œ๐™’๐™๐™ฎ ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ช ๐™™๐™ž๐™š, ๐™Š ๐™๐™ค๐™ช๐™จ๐™š ๐™ค๐™› ๐™„๐™จ๐™ง๐™–๐™š๐™ก? ๐™๐™ค๐™ง ๐™„ ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ฃ๐™ค ๐™ฅ๐™ก๐™š๐™–๐™จ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š ๐™ž๐™ฃ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™™๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ ๐™ค๐™› ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ฎ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™š, ๐™™๐™š๐™˜๐™ก๐™–๐™ง๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™‡๐™ค๐™ง๐™™ ๐™‚๐™ค๐™™; ๐™จ๐™ค ๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™ง๐™ฃ, ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ก๐™ž๐™ซ๐™š." (Ezekielโ€ฌ โ€ญ18:31-32โ€ฌ)

Here is a call to repentance: Return to the truth of God before itโ€™s too late. He will meet you with forgiveness, and put things right again. He offered it to Israel in Ezekielโ€™s day, and He makes the same offer to our nation and our world today.
