"I Don't See Anything Wrong With It..."

I imagine that you have heard this comment before. It has something to do with personal beliefs regarding worship, social behavior, or personal conduct. Here is a list of things with which many people often don't see anything wrong:
  • Social or Private Drinking of Alcoholic Beverages
  • Mixed Gender Swimming (Bathing Suits/Pool Parties)
  • Dancing
  • Tobacco Use
  • Showing Some Skin
  • Movies or TV Programs with Foul Language and/or Nudity
  • Instrumental Music in Worship
  • Women Serving in the Public Worship
  • Gambling
  • Absenteeism from Worship or Bible Class
  • Participating in Denominational Worship

The key to the statement, "I don't see anything wrong with it," is something that might be very wrong - the attitude. When weighted with Scripture, this statement can be acceptable. There is no reason why anyone should try to establish human traditions while overriding the authority of the Bible. But the problem is simple. It doesn't matter if we see anything wrong with it or even right with it - what ever IT may be. What God says matters. What He sees makes all the difference.

"Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" ~ 2 Cor. 10:5.
