“But he who does WRONG will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality” (Colossians 3:25)
I don’t think that there are too many people who will debate that wrongs exist globally. If I were to itemize these, it would take pages to list them. Here is just a minuscule sampling – – abortion, addiction, anti-Semitism, atheism, bullying, cheating, crime, greed, heresy, idolatry, injustice, lying, murder, sexual deviation, stealing, violence – – well, you get the picture! And our world is full of wrongs!!
Allow me to elaborate a little:
- If there are some things that are wrong, there must also be some things that are right.
- These wrongs come from the evil, sinful heart (mind, emotions, will) of man. Man’s nature, with which he is born, is corrupted by sin and his sinful acts emanate from his nature. This is according to the Bible, God’s Word, and contrary to such false teachers as Pelagius (4th century A.D.).
- Wrongs in the world are not culturally determined. They must be pointed out by God Himself – – someone who is greater and higher than mankind. This biblical God sets the standards of right and wrong! If it were to come from humanoids, the standards would be flawed and most often contradictory! God’s standards are authoritative, final and perfect.
- For those who delude themselves into thinking that they can “get away with it,” they better think again! Just because God hasn’t judged them for their wrongs thus far, doesn’t mean He won’t do so in the future (that would fit into the category of faulty logic) !
Mankind is set on a collision course with the Almighty God, and specifically with His only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. NOBODY EVER gets away with anything and at the end, everyone must face the Judge of the earth, Jesus Christ: For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, (John 5:22) and, He who rejects Me, and does not receive My words, has that which judges him–the word that I have spoken will judge him in the last day. (John 12:48) …! Whatever a man sows, that will he also reap: Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. (Galatians 6:7) ! But God, in His grace, still gives us time to repent of our sins. The apostle Paul writes, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Time is running out before God pours out His judgment on this evil world. “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31) !
