Swayed In Error

I Corinthians 6:17 but he that is joined unto the Lord is one Spirit

I Timothy 1:2-10 unto Timothy, my own son in the faith; grace, mercy, and peace, from God our Father and Jesus Christ our Lord; as I besought thee to abide still as Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou might charge some that they teach no other doctrine. Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions rather than godly edifying which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith, to do. Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned; from which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm. But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; know this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers. For whoremongers, for them that, defile themselves with mankind, for men stealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing. Thatís contrary to sound doctrine.

Predicated upon the text from verse 6 some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; from here we take a subject; swayed in error. It means we went from pure to impure. To whom much is given much is required.

When we sway, alternating between one belief to another, changing one position for another; leaning from God to another way or thing, veering from right to wrong, to be inclined a certain way or be turned from a given course, influenced or diverted, fluctuating ib spirit; we lean more to whatís wrong than right. We began to leave whatís true and believe whatís incorrect, untrue or wrong. What we once believed to be true of God and nature we no longer believe. We follow whatís incorrectly done through ignorance or carelessness and make mistakes in life.

Swag was a term the gays used that meant ďsecretly we are gayĒ. Well they now donít have to be secretly gay in the face of man but no matter how much freedom they seek among men it will never be acceptable in Godís sight. They never will realize how much Satan has used them to build up hell.

They have swayed in error away from the God they proclaim they love. God made man from the dust of the earth a body and put what had created man to be on the inside the body. God then breathe the Holy Ghost on man and man became a living soul. When man or woman proclaim they are something other than the Holy Ghost breathed on them to be they are in error. Man became a living soul. When man or woman proclaims they are something other than the Holy Ghost breathed on them to be they commit blasphemy. They deny the power of the Holy Ghost work.

When we walk in this world and conforms our lives to an image away from God we conform to the world and not the image of Christ. Our conscience has been seared and we build confidence in the wrong things. Our confidence is in the flesh. We make a confession before men that we are above God, we are a god. We are like Satan and therefore have already been condemned to hell. We give heed to fables; a brief tale embodying a moral saying and introducing animals and sometimes even inanimate things or speaking and acting rational, a false invented thing that is taken with reference to the vain traditions of the Jews and worthless agenda of the heathen (I Timothy 4:7 endless genealogies which minister question rather than godly edifying). The tracing of the descent of a person or family from an ancestor is for natural order of succession.

We are to promote love Ė the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart and of a good conscience and of faith unfeigned.

Some have swerved and turned aside unto vain jangling. They or we are impure.

They change and make laws to meet the need if the flesh not the Spirit. They teach the Law and donít understand neither what they say, nor inherent of what the Law affirms (sin or righteousness). Godís law is good and is law forever. Manís law can change at anytime for manís law is made for the lawless and is only good for those that use it lawfully. Righteous men need no other law but Godís for they obey Godís law which covers the whole of man. Laws are made for the lawless and disobedient.

The ungodly has swayed off the beacon path. The sinners are as they are called fails to abstain from all appearances of evil. I Thessalonians 5:22 says we are to abstain from all appearances of evil. Evil is morally bad or wrong, wicked, depraved; resulting from or based on conduct regarded as immoral, causing pain or trouble, harmful or injurious offensively disgusting sin. They present themselves as innocent but are as conniving as their greatest enemy and foe; Satan. Evil was birth forth in the beginning of manís life in Genesis 3:5 in between Satanís plea for manís soul. It was really developed in Genesis 6:5 and throughout to II Timothy 4:1-5. We must have a consciousness of evil (Genesis 3:7). We must also be reminded that there is punishment for evil (Psalm 34:2, Matthew 25:45-46, John 5:29, revelation 20:14-1). Jesus has given us a way to overcome evil (Luke 6:27-38, John 16:8-10, Romans 12:9, 21, I Peter 3:9-12, Revelation 2:7; 5:5).

Unholy we are and faithless. Profane we are; for we allow what we have accepted, believed, and confessed to be taken away by one that once knew and lived in Heaven with God. He takes what we have been given (the Word) to overcome and uses it against us. He makes us think we are important when itís not about us. Pride seeps in and wwe lose our way. Whatís important is that God be portrayed as He is; the Lord of this world not the god of this world; there is a difference. We are profane because we have allowed Satan to disconnect us from God as he is. Evil is in this world, kicked out of Heaven, roaming to and from seeking whom he may find to build up his kingdom (hell). Although evil cannot take us over, it comes and we by our own doings invite it into our hearts. Once he is in; evil we will do and submit to even unaware.

Man has surrendered to the enemy and swayed in error so to the point that they have become murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers. Murder is the unlawful and malicious or premeditated killing of one human being by another; also any killing done while committing some other felony as rape or robbery. It is something done with malice to spoil or mar even without ever touching another with the hands. Why would we cause pain to the heart of God? Why would we readily cause harm to another? Why would we like to see others in misery? Why would we cause disaster in the life of another because we can? We do it because we have swayed in error. We are submitted to the evil one; Satan, the Devil. We have given control over to him. He has sneaked in through an entity we were unaware of that was present. We still think we are okay with God and thatís how we are deceived. We did ninety nine things right and one evil thing and stepped out of the realm of Christ.

We become manslayers. Whoremongers. Them that defile themselves with mankind. Menstealers. Liars. Perjured persons and anything else that is contrary to sound doctrine covetousness.
