The Inventor Is Right
Read Deuteronomy Chapter 32
Dt 32:6 Is this the way you repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is He not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you?
When a new invention is presented to the world, the only person who can properly explain the invention is the inventor himself. No one else knows all of the inner workings of his creation. Only the inventor can write the instruction booklet which explains its proper usage. Of course, in our world, the inventor often has others aiding him as he works. However, in regard to God’s creations, there was no one working alongside Him as He created.
We know that God created all things which exist, including each of us. He created and formed the heavens, earth, all living and non-living things. As we ponder this truth, can we think of anyone who is better equipped to write the instruction booklet for each creation? Certainly not!
Our Lord knows exactly what is best for mankind. He knows how to instruct each man on how to live, what to think, and what to say. Guess what. He has written that instruction book, through the Holy Spirit speaking inspired words to chosen messengers. That book is the bible, God’s Holy Word. Every word was carefully chosen by our Lord, giving us the exact plan showing us how to live our lives in the correct way.
Mankind has tried every way possible to alter His perfect set of instructions. The result has been disastrous. It has led to complete moral decay, in every way imaginable. Mankind cannot improve on God’s perfect plan. Those plans in regard to sexuality and sexual conduct are precisely what lead man and woman to an ideal use of God’s creation – both the creation of man, and the creation of sexuality. No amount of tweaking, altering, or changing of the instruction book will improve what He has created or spoken.
Our application is obvious. Our SSA must be completely submitted to Him and His instructions. Our misguided childhoods, those circumstances which caused us to be vulnerable to same-sex temptations, does not alter what our Lord has spoken and written. Nothing in our current world presents circumstances which justify changing what He has written. Our only hope, which is as sure as God Himself, is to adhere to the Inventor’s expressions of correct usage of our created bodies.
2Co 4:2 Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
Prayer: Father, You are the only One who can properly guide us as we live. There are no men who possess the wisdom to improve on Your words. Give us a continued appreciation of Your wisdom, and the ability to heed Your step by step instructions for living.
