THEME: THE CHRISTIAN STEADFASTNESS
TOPIC: RIGHT ATTITUDE TO PERMISSIVE OUTLOOK
SCRIPTURE FOCUS: Jeremiah 6:16-17
Christian steadfastness is the quality of constant spiritual stability that a Christian chooses to have by remaining firm in his beliefs and convictions of Godly principles. Every Christian must resolve in their mind and heart to be immovable away from the life-giving principles of Jesus Christ.
- RECOGNIZE THE DANGERS OF PERMISSIVE OUTLOOK: 1 Corinthians 6:12, Jeremiah 6:16-17 We are living in what is called a “Permissive Society!” That is, more and more freedom to do as we please and not be subject to a higher authority or punishment. It is a selfish, self-indulgent outlook that desires to be free of any restraints.
- Our children to a great extent reflect this permissive outlook! Christian Parents let their children get by with “immoral things” and do nothing about it, and even take up for them when they should be disciplined! As with Israel after the death of Joshua and the elders that succeeded him, “every man did that which was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 17:6). Permissive outlook can be seen in fashion, entertainment and family etc.
