I did it my way ( Exodus 20 v 1 - 17 )
Someone once said,''The first of all human instincts, is the instinct to do what we like'',Rudyard Kipling wrote,'' Ship me some wheres east of Suez, where the best is like the worst, Where there aren't no Ten Commandments,an' a man can raise a thirst''. It has always been,its part of our fallen nature,when Satan tempted Eve, knowing what God said, and the consequences of disobeying,she went ahead. Genesis 2 v 15 - 17. Every day millions of people break the laws of whatever country they live in,there is never a day that the speed limit is not broken.We like doing our own thing,irrespective of the laws of our country. and as for God telling us what to do,or not do,we fudge the issue by saying God is a loving God, and those who raise concerns about sexual behaviour,are told they are being intolerant,and unloving, and only stirring up hate. Sin has become the unmentionable, in fact God has become the unmentionable,for if you move God out of the picture,then we need not fear a holy God, what we do in the bedroom and who we do it with ,is nobodies business. The cry of modern man is the same cry that the ancient Pharaoh made to Moses, ''Who is the Lord, that I should obey Him'' (Exodus 5 v 2 ), and we know what happened to him.
