Principles & Beliefs

Almost every person who walks this earth has principles and beliefs; they say a lot about who that person is. I know there are a few exceptions, for there are some people who it seems don’t care about anything. Their whole system make-up is just to survive.

But for the whole, people live by certain standards they have set in the ways they believe. It will be the core principles that a person has that say who they really are inside.

God’s Word gives us the true principles that work, and they have been proven time and time again. We choose to believe in God’s Word as truth; and if a person wants to see truth they can. But the flesh and the world’s temptations offer a great pull for people, and many will compromise, and their principles change to how they want to live rather than what God asks of them.

It is amazing sometimes to see how people justify their own principles by bending God’s Word to fit their belief system and therefore soothe their conscience, yet always have that feeling something isn’t quite right. They will do this until they do it enough that it doesn’t matter anymore, and now they are convinced because their heart has been hardened.

Be careful. 1 Corinthians 6:9 says, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God?”

Do not be deceived; take a good look daily at the principles you live by and why.
