Abstain From Sin

It is taught that we should “abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication.” Many times, when we are in the mix of a false religion and aren’t reading the Bible we are blinded by these things. We may be into idolatry and not even know it. Though idol worship may be different now, as we don’t see many blood sacrifices offered to idols in our days, it doesn’t mean we don’t have a problem now with idolatry. Now a days there are many people that worship engraved images and statues. This form of worship is forbidden by God and by doing this we will not be permitted to enter heaven unless we repent. Sexual Immorality is also very repulsive in the eyes of the Lord. Today, many men are secretly engaged in pornography. In doing so they are distancing themselves from God. Their hearts are far from Him. All these sins above have the power to damn us to hell if we do not repent. If you have fallen, there is hope. God is waiting for your return. Once you give up your old life and give Him your whole heart He will forgive your sins. The Lord has power to save everyone that turns from their sins and accepts Him as Lord of their life. Though you may falter because of your flesh, come back to Him and He will make you whole again. His mercy has no end.

Acts 15:28-29 (KJV)
28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things;
29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well.
