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...
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)
