7 things the Bible highly forbids

I occasionally attempt to highlight the fundamental concerns confronting our civilization and how, according to experts, we are on the edge of ecological, economic, sociological, and spiritual collapse unless we drastically alter our current course.

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good in order to accomplish what is now being accomplished, the saving of many lives," the Bible states in Genesis 50:20.

On the other hand, people have sought a number of ways to circumvent the Bible's strict commandments.

The Bible frequently discloses the following atrocities to men who have failed badly as a result of Satan's lies:

1) Covetousness and irrational desires

Desire is described as the act of having intense emotions, whether pleasant or bad.

Because the Bible warns us against evil impulses, desiring something wrong is heinous.

However, the concerns of this life, the deceit of wealth, and yearning for other things infiltrate and choke the word, rendering it fruitless, "Mark 4:19" states.

2) Propaganda or libelous speech dissemination

While the tongue is one of the smallest organs in the body, it can cause major issues or injury.

Do not speak unwholesome language," Ephesians 4:29 instructs, "but only what is beneficial for building others up according to their needs, so that those who listen may profit."

3) Negative ideas or concepts

Evil thoughts are concepts that motivate you to commit a crime.

The Bible warns us to focus on positive thoughts rather than negative ones.

Matthew 15:19-20

These are the things that degrade an individual, although eating with dirty hands does not. "

4) Greed or egotistical motivations.

This term refers to selfish desires for wealth, power, and celebrity, as well as earthly pleasures.

6:24), "It is physically impossible to serve two masters concurrently. Either you loathe one and admire the other, or you adore both. It is difficult to serve both God and money simultaneously.

5) Inquisitiveness that is selfish, lazy, or rebellious.

It is a matter of believing we know better than God and acting contrary to his desire.

Attempts to disguise our errors as correct or simply the error itself

Acts 1:6-7 is a book of Acts verse that tells us about

"Lord, are you going to restore the kingdom to Israel at this time?" they enquired as they pressed themselves against him. He explained: "It is not your responsibility to know the times or dates established by the father on his own authority."

6) Impure objectives or desires

to commit acts of evil and avarice in order to amass the greatest amount of power, riches, and celebrity through any means imaginable.

"Come, let us build ourselves a city with a tower that reaches to the heavens," they pleaded, "so that we can establish a reputation for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered across the entire surface of the planet."

 

7) Obsession with material possessions or worldliness

Christians are urged to abstain from temporal possessions and instead walk in the spirit.

Romans 12:2, Rather than following the world's pattern, let your thoughts be updated. Then you will be able to examine and approve of God's will—his good, acceptable, and perfect will. "

As a result, the best way to avoid things that are not biblical is to feed our souls with God's word.

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, contemplate what is true, noble, just, pure, lovely, admirable—in other words, whatever is excellent or praiseworthy. If
