Herding Dogs and Washing Hogs

“For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ” Jude 1:4

What a strange day we live in as Christians.

If preach against sin, you are a legalist.

If you say “we should be holy” you are some kind of crank.

We have a generation or two of people who have slid into a church but have never been placed into Christ.

Many have repeated a prayer or came to an altar but have never come to Christ.

They are still the servants of sin.

They are still lovers of the world.

They look, act and talk just like the pagan world around them.

I often say the average preacher spends most of his time herding dogs and washing hogs. {2 Peter 2:19-22}

The grace of God that brings salvation has not taught them that they should deny ungodliness and worldly lust, that they should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world. {Titus 2:11-12}

Notice how the Apostle Paul describes them in the book of Titus.

Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. Titus 1:15-16

There are folks today, even in churches, who name the name of Christ who in works deny Him.

Their walk talks louder than their talk.

People will say, “what is sin?”

…As if the Bible doesn’t tell us what sin is.

We are living in a day of moral relativism.

Our public schools, colleges and universities and the media have been force feeding it to us for years.

Now we have “your truth” and “my truth”.

When in fact there is only one truth…and it is in the Bible.

Unless some men of God stand up and preach the Word to a bunch of Laodicean church people we are doomed.

Are you still a servant to sin? Or Has Jesus Christ changed your life?
