Seven Deadly Thoughts of The Christian

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7


You’ve most like have heard about the seven deadly sins. The movies have taken it in as subject numerous times.  They are clearly spelled out Biblically in Proverbs 6:16-19. They are lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. Allow me to share seven deadly thoughts for the Christian that can lead to serious damage for the individual, his family, and his church.


“It won’t hurt to compromise.” – Christians are not only accused of being narrow-minded, which we are. But when we compromise our beliefs, look out.


“Everyone else is doing it.” – The majority never has been right morally and never will. Just because others are doing something, does not make it right. Check out the book – God’s Word.


“Just once wouldn’t hurt.” – Many families have been destroyed because of one act of adultery. Many lives have been lost as a result of one drink or one shoot up. Many Christians have taken the road to spiritual destruction following one wrong decision.


“No one really pays attention to what I do.” – Christians are called ambassadors (representatives) for Christ. Others watch to see if we are good ambassadors or bad ambassadors.


“I can put off the spiritual until later.” – I’ve got a family to raise, a career to achieve, wild oats to sow, then I will give my heart to the Lord. Remember that the Lord’s Spirit will not always strive with men and today is the day of salvation.


“That person messed up five years ago. He doesn’t deserve a second chance.” – We have to be thankful God doesn’t think that way. He is a God of restoration, giving us another chance.


“My main goal is money.” – The Bible clearly states that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil and to seek the kingdom of God first and other things second.


Most failures don’t occur overnight, but they have a beginning in a thought then an action.
