Yes is No. No is Yes.

Here is a puzzling question. How can yes become no and no become yes? Let me answer with an illustration of the world today. You will probably agree that, in our world, sin normalizes and justifies what is abnormal and unjustifiable. Then, it redefines and repackages itself into a socially acceptable norm. In time, governments codify this redefined package into law. This makes true righteousness become sin in the eyes of our societies. Then, penalties are exacted for those who object to, or resist the sin that has become acceptable and justifiable in the eyes of mainstream society. Galatians 6:7-9 (NKJV) says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. {8} For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. {9} And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”

When unrighteousness is labeled as virtue, yes has become no and no has become yes. To disagree with this nonsense is to bring the wrath of this counterfeit virtue upon you. Nevertheless, God tells us not to “grow weary while doing good,” or, we could say, not to “grow weary while doing what is righteous before the Lord.” I’m Dr. Bob. What is your level of commitment to protect God’s definition of what is righteous? Reflect on how this affects your actions in an unrighteous world.

Yes is Yes. No is No.
