HOW TO SURVIVE IN A PAGAN CULTURE

November 1, 1998
Christians living in the world today are facing the problem, how to survive in a pagan culture and stay pure. We need to first ask this question: WHAT DOES GOD SAY?
God spoke to Moses and said : You shall have no other gods before me...Exodus 20: 1-5

God told Moses what the people should do, when they entered the land of Canaan. Do not learn the ways of the pagans! Deuteronomy 18:9-13
Is it important to obey God, or does God give us some slack? The answer is: God does not give any slack! He will either bless you or curse you. Deuteronomy 28:1-68
(This sermon does not deal with salvation, Salvation is a free gift- Ephesians 2:8-10, we are now dealing with our walk on planet earth)

The Christian (born again believer in Christ) is facing three choices. He can either adapt to the culture he is living in -ASSIMILATE, Or he can try a lesser evil, COMPROMISE, or he can reject the culture (world). RESIST Satan and walk with God in faith, totally trusting that God shall take care of him. Daniel 3:13-18

ASSIMILATION
King Ahab made his choice, he rejected God and become a Baal worshiper: I Kings 16:30-33
Ahab worked hard to sin and to provoke the Lord, God sent the prophet Elijah to him. I Kings 21:17-26
God's Word prevailed, the dogs licked the blood of Ahab - I Kings 22:34-38; and a number of years later the dogs ate the body of Jezebel- 2 Kings 9:31-37; and his entire family was eradicated from the earth - 
2 Kings 10:6-11

COMPROMISE
When Solomon became king, his father David told him what to do: I Kings 2:14 But it did not take long for Solomon to compromise - I Kings 3:1 and from here on it went downhill for Solomon, until he was rejected by God. 1 Kings 11:1-9

RESISTING
Joseph rejected the whorish woman- Genesis 39:5-20
Moses rejected a life in the Egyptian palace - Hebrews 11:23-29
Daniel rejected the culture of Babylon - Daniel 1: 1-21

JESUS SAID: YOU CANNOT SERVE TWO MASTERS! Matthew 6:19-24

Your walk on this earth will have eternal consequences for you! Hebrews12;15-29

Which one of the three choices have you selected? You cannot be neutral! If you have not made a decision with your mind, you have made a choice by the way you live.

IS JESUS PLEASED WITH YOUR CHOICE?
