"We're Just Having' Fun"

Why Someone Always Gets Hurt When We Sin

We were awakened by drunken laughter through our hotel room wall. 

When my husband knocked on the door next to ours, no one answered. So he called through the door: "I'd appreciate you keeping it down. You woke us." 

"We're here to have fun," a drunken voice yelled back.

Drunken people rarely make sense, but there's a "sober" excuse I've heard that's just as foolish. It's this one: "It's no one's business what I do privately. I'm not hurting anyone." 

But the truth is this: Whenever we violate God's commands we hurt ourselves because every command of God is given for our best good. And we usually hurt others too, sometimes directly, sometimes indirectly. 

Scripture says God's precepts should be "fully obeyed" because His law "is perfect, refreshing the soul... making wise the simple" (Psalm 19:7; 119:4).

  2. {Kathy} Moral relativism has penetrated every aspect of our culture. The rationalization of all behavior as something that only affects the person doing it is crazy. It's all about the self, the ego and the need for instant gratification at all costs.

  3. This is so true. Many people don't want to be confronted with the truth, especially if it means a needed change (which it usually does!).
