Hard to Hear God

Hard to Hear (4)
—Sometimes God’s Truth Hurts

We present more hard sayings, teaching in the Bible that people find hard to hear and difficult to believe. This page is about sin and godliness...


Evil Comes Out of the Heart

Some religions have rules and regulations concerning food. Jesus does not make rules about what foods we may eat or when we may eat them. He says that the words that come out of our mouths are far more important than the foods that go in. The words we speak come from our hearts. If we speak evil, then there is evil in our hearts. That’s what Jesus wants to fix, and rules about food won’t help (Matthew 15:17-19).

Live Godly, Denying Ungodliness

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds. These things speak and exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one disregard you (Titus 2:11-15 NASV).

Things God Hates

The Bible, in various places, lists some of the things that God condemns as sin. There will be something in each list that convicts or offends us because we are guilty. We have a choice to reject God's word, or listen to it and change.

Grace Requires Godliness

We like to hear about grace. We sing, "Amazing grace how sweet the sound..." but many of us don't like to hear that grace requires us to deny ungodliness and worldly lusts to live sober, righteous, and godly lives.

Abstain from Evil

Paul says, "Examine everything carefully, hold fast to what is good. Abstain from every form of evil." (1Thessalonians 5:21-22). Many people find this too much trouble. But by not doing it, they get into far more trouble.

Sins Separate Us from God

Sin cuts us off from God. But God can connect us again. Jesus is the atonement for the sins of the whole world —whoever will believe, repent, and obey His word (1John 2:1-2)
