    Yahweh spoke to Manasseh, and to his people; but they didn't listen. Therefore Yahweh brought on them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh in chains, bound him with fetters, and carried him to Babylon.

Sex, Drugs and Rock-n-Roll

  • And the people of Israel did what was evil in the sight of the LORD. They forgot the LORD their God and served the Baals and the Asheroth. Judg. 3:7 ESV

    Centuries ago when it was time to go to church, there was an excitement in the air and no one wanted to stay home. It was a convenient religion. Baal was the god of materialism and money. Asheroth was the god of sex and fertility. Molech was the god of fire. Worshipping these gods involved extravagant drunken orgies. You were required to sleep with prostitutes, each other's spouses, as well as man to man and woman to woman. This often produced unwanted pregnancies which were conveniently burned as a sacrifice (Lev 18:21).

    I used to read the Bible and wonder how people could worship idols like this. It just seemed so foreign to me and distant. Then as I grew older the Lord revealed to me that it is rampant today. Thousands of years later, most of the world still chase these gods and Christians are not immune. It seems to be our default mode when not actively seeking God. Lust, adultery, the love of money, abortion and so much more. You don’t have to search hard to find all of this alive and well in the church today.

    We need to keep Jesus at the center of our life so that He can bring balance to all areas. There is nothing wrong with money or sex, but it cannot be the most important thing in your life or it will become a snare to you. No one can serve two masters (Luke 16:13). If you have been caught in this trap, start putting God first in your life every day. Before long He will begin to guide you out of it and all the other things will fall into place. Don’t forget the Lord your God and begin to unknowingly serve the others.
