“If it feels good do it” is a message we read in advertisements, watch in commercials, and hear in music all the time It’s the motivation behind the clothes that we wear, activities we celebrate, and the food we eat. We even find this statement used to motivate people to spiritual improvement and self-betterment.
Years ago George Barna reported that 31% of adults said that their most common basis for moral decision making is doing whatever feels right in a given situation. We’ve all heard people say as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else, it’s permissible.”
While this is certainly a prevailing cultural attitude today is it really how God has called us to live or is it rather a craftily designed lie to undermine traditional moral foundations of the Church, our nation, and our homes? This Sunday we are going to consider that question and reflect on how this prevailing attitude can change our attitude toward what the Bible calls sin.
