“Don’t rock the boat!”
“Can’t we all just get along?”
“Let’s just keep the peace.”
I’m sure these phrases aren’t new to you.
There’s a part of us that longs for peace, isn’t there?
We yearn for the tranquility that comes with being free from turmoil or opposition.
But the Bible is clear about what peace is…
and what it’s not.
And as more and more well-intentioned but dead-wrong people are confusing peace with acceptance of sin, you and I and all Christ-followers ought to be prepared to fill the void where truth belongs.
I’m at Satisfaction Through Christ today, discussing what the Bible has to say about peace…
and why it can’t begin with me.
Here’s an excerpt:
The song has a lovely, lyrical tune. One of those that tends to stay in your head for a while.
It expresses an appealing sentiment, too. One that seems noble. Admirable. Godly, even.
Especially in these days of social media (and regular media) gone wild.
Too bad it’s based on a lie.
You see, the lyrics go on to say:
“With God as our Father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.”
As alluring as it might be, the idea that God is Father to all people is not a biblical one.
