Wisdom in warnings (2)

In current reality, we see the disastrous results of this lack of boundaries in these things: 

1. Self-gratification or Self-indulgence – The all-consuming interest of many people today is first of all, to satisfy their own whims, caprices, and desires, with little or no regard for the needs and rights of others.

Therefore we have a  proliferation of addictions and human degradation – which always accompanies addictions. As we keep greedily stuffing ourselves with goodies, as we keep gratifying and indulging ourselves, the irony of it all is this: the temporary high, the temporary pleasure, also decreases. We’ll always end up feeling empty. Emptier and hungrier than our last “fix.” And whether we know it or not,  we’re falling deeper and deeper into a dark, bottomless pit. 

2. Sexual immorality – These days, a hedonistic lifestyle is no longer an extreme choice. It’s an ordinary choice. Many people, young and old, are constantly wearing themselves down and putting their health at risk with multiple sex partners and the deadly package that often goes with it: drugs, alcohol, STD, sexual deviants, pornography, criminal acts, financial ruin, and huge debts. Let’s face it. Vices cost money. Addictions cost money. As our children and youth see the sexually immoral lifestyle of their parents or figures of authority, most of them assume the same depravity by osmosis. 

They’re  damaged by their parents even before they make a choice to damage themselves.  That’s called a “generational curse.” The sins of the father are passed on to the children – but let’s not be stupid and blame God for that. This is damage that we inflict on ourselves and our children, and generations thereafter. 

3. Self-worship – Love of self and everything that makes us feel happy, adored, admired, superior, esteemed, entitled, and accomplished are the things that lure many in this generation to jobs, businesses and advocacies where we compromise practically everything -- our health, our family, our friendships, our morals and integrity –  just to get the success and adulation we crave for. Of course, this efficiently pushes God out of the picture. We may fool ourselves into thinking that we’re “good” because we’re religious, have our pet causes and noble advocacies; because we move in decent social circles, and have own cozy barkada of connoisseurs, the politically enlightened, the intelligentsia, or the literati. At the end of the day, we feel secure, smug and superior because we belong to a church, we’re hobnobbing with the right crowd, and we’re so “Bilib na Bilib sa Sarili.” That’s self-worship. Not much room for God with an ego that’s fascinated with and mesmerized by itself! 

4. Complaining, whining, and grumbling – I’ve heard a Bible scholar and lecturer call this a “Culture of Victimhood.” Many have this mentality nowadays – that the world owes them a living. That they’re victims of their stagnant environments, of ignorant parents, of inept educators, a corrupt government, etc. etc. Hence, everyone is an imbecile except them. They feel entitled to “the good life” which was stolen from them. They feel eternally deprived and discontent. And when things don’t go as expected, of course they blame everyone else but themselves. They refuse to take responsibility for their own lives. They always want to be rescued from their own stupid choices. I guess we’ve raised a generation of spoiled brats and whiners who specialize in one thing: whining and feeling entitled. 

We’re experiencing all these in the 21st century – but here’s the shocking thing. Did you know that 2,000 years ago (give or take a few hundred), the apostle Paul already wrote about these maladjusted attitudes during their times? I guess that’s shouting out something to us: that sin never grows old. Satan is gleefully saying – why reinvent the wheel? 

The Bible is replete with warnings. And the four sins listed above are the bane of our generation. God warned us about them thousands of years ago, and now, the same sins plague us. They’re here. Right in our midst. 

If you’re wise and would like to spare yourself the degradation, the shame, the pain and suffering that always accompany these sins, then it’s wise do a heart check: Am I guilty of any of these four sins? Am I falling, headlong, into a dark, bottomless pit? If I am, then I better get some help. I better ask God to break my fall before I do more harm to myself and my family. Do it. 

One place you can go to is Christ’s Commission Fellowship (The CCF Center Building) on C5 Road, near Tiendesitas. We have Sunday worship services at 9am, 12noon, 3pm and 6pm. You’ll love it. The teaching is Biblical, practical, interesting, and current. The aircon can be pretty cold, so please bring a jacket. 

So let’s be wise and heed the warning of the apostle Paul: 

“Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to play.”

Nor let us act immorally, as some of them did, and twenty-three thousand fell in one day. 

Nor let us try the Lord as some of them did, and were destroyed by the serpents. 

Nor grumble, as some of them did, and were destroyed by the destroyer.” (1 Corinthians 10: 7-10)
