Euthanizing Common Sense
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 2022
Posted by: Study-Grow-Know Ministries | more..

As we view the world's landscape, we cannot help but notice common sense and truth is being officially euthanized through the use of wokeness. While it's easy to shake our heads at this, the situation has been repeated as often as civilization has existed throughout history. The demise of those previous societies is the result and this is exactly what's happening today as well.

Just a cursory reading of many of the major and minor prophets of the Old Testament proves that common sense often became lacking. In Amos 4:1, we learn of the "cows of Bashan," (rich women), who seemed to delight in ordering their husbands around. "Bring, that we may drink!" and husbands would comply to keep the peace.

The entire fourth chapter of the book of Amos is God warning Israel of their coming demise via judgment. This was because of their continued wanderlust (regarding worshiping other gods), and their abject refusal to do what was right in God's eyes. Israel preferred to not comply with God.

Amos 5:2-3 states the following:

2 Fallen, no more to rise,
is the virgin Israel;
forsaken on her land,
with none to raise her up.”
3 For thus says the Lord God:

“The city that went out a thousand
shall have a hundred left,
and that which went out a hundred
shall have ten left
to the house of Israel.”

God always warned Israel about coming judgment to give them the opportunity to repent and change directions and to ensure that they had no excuse when judgment arrived. These warnings were also signs of His tremendous grace. Are we any better? Christians today, do we deserve His love, His grace, His working in and through us to create within us the character of Jesus? Do we praise Him and value what He has provided for us in life? Do we, above all things, seek to bless Him with lives that fear offending Him? Do we want above all to do what is right or do we still seek our own good?

10 They hate him who reproves in the gate,
and they abhor him who speaks the truth.
11 Therefore because you trample on the poor
and you exact taxes of grain from him,
you have built houses of hewn stone,
but you shall not dwell in them;
you have planted pleasant vineyards,
but you shall not drink their wine.
12 For I know how many are your transgressions
and how great are your sins—
you who afflict the righteous, who take a bribe,
and turn aside the needy in the gate.
13 Therefore he who is prudent will keep silent in such a time,
for it is an evil time.
14 Seek good, and not evil,
that you may live;
and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you,
as you have said.
15 Hate evil, and love good,
and establish justice in the gate;
it may be that the Lord, the God of hosts,
will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.

The people of Israel hated truth, fully rejecting it and those who dared to speak it. Israelites preferred lies to truth any day. God sent judgment because Israel deserved it, why would He ignore disciplining Christians who also do the same type of things? Do we prefer lies to truth like Israel?

Because of coming judgment, God warned Israel they would not live in homes they built. Vineyards they planted would also be enjoyed by others (v 11). God's wrath would be poured out onto Israel because of how often they rejected His rule by seeking other gods and living the way the pagans around them lived, in complete ignorance and disregard for God. As Christians, do we prefer disregarding obedience to God because that makes us seem "legalistic"?

Common sense can actually be displaced by wrong thinking (called "wokeness" today). Wokeness isn't...
