The simple fact of the matter is that it is human nature to believe that you are a good person. Misunderstood, perhaps, but certainly not evil. We are victims. We are products of our environments. We are products of genetics. Etc.
The Bible, however, calls us all sinners. The Bible says we must repent. Yet, even those who claim to be Christian will flat out refuse to repent. They will claim that Jesus came to do away with the Law. They will claim the Law was only for the Jews. They believe God really was winking when He said, “Thou shalt not…” They will not believe God keeps His promises.
What a shame!
When God says to “Remember the Sabbath day”, that is the first that people will forget. When Jesus said the Law will not be done away, they will claim that He made it obsolete or some other term that really means it was done away.
The Bible commands you to not be deceived (Lk 21:8; 1Co 6:9; 15:33; Gal 6:7). When you twist Scripture and lie about God’s commandments, even to yourself, you are deceiving and being deceived.
Jesus preached repentance (Mt 4:17; 11:20-21; 12:41; Mk 1:15; 2:17). The disciples preached repentance (Mk 6:12; Ac 2:38; 11:18; 17:30).
Notice even the Gentiles were called to repentance! If the Law was nullified, there is nothing to repent of! Do we really believe that God is playing games with our salvation by making us repent of breaking the Law, then saying, “OK, now you can break the same Law”? Does He hide and jump out and then yell, “Just kidding!” in spite of all the ancient nations He punished for breaking His Law?
Sinners want to keep sinning. They think they don’t need to repent in front of an all powerful, almighty and holy God. They will find a reason to disregard their sin.
