20 They also that render [shalam] evil [ra`] for good [towb] are mine adversaries [satan]; because I follow [radaph] the thing that good [towb] is. KJV-Interlinear
20 Those who render me evil for good accuse me because I follow after good. ESV
Not only does being a believer in Christ, cause you to be an enemy of the world, you will also be faced with a world that has right and wrong turned upside down.
Enemies of Christians, are beyond counting.
They don’t include only other people, but enemies include wrong philosophies, wrong types of thinking, wrong types of reasoning or rationale, all of which arrive at wrong conclusions.
Many people have good intentions, and they are sincere in their beliefs, but when doctrine, which is truth, is absent from thinking, then all of the sincerity and good intentions in the world, will not correct wrong thinking.
Many people misconstrue their efforts, as good, when in fact their efforts are not good.
The easiest way to know whether your thoughts, actions, or efforts, are good or not, is simply to compare your life, with that required by Bible doctrine, and see if they match up.
In most cases they will not match up.
The easiest questions to ask are,
Do you confess your sins to God the Father on a regular, or daily basis?
Do you pursue or participate in a daily Bible study through instruction?
Do you listen and learn, and apply the things you have learned to your daily life?
And to these three questions most people cannot honestly answer them, yes.
And this means that the thinking of your mind, will in fact have some glitches. Anything that you do while out of fellowship, is wrong.
A wrong thing done in a wrong way, is wrong.
A right thing done in a wrong way, is wrong.
A wrong thing done in a right way, is wrong.
A right thing done in a right way, is the only way it can be right.
Lack of understanding, lack of learning, lack of fellowship, simply means that you cannot be doing things in the right way. And that leaves the door open for the deception of, sincerity and good intentions, to lead you down the wrong path.
Doing evil, and calling it good, whether done intentionally, or whether done accidentally, is irrelevant. Wrong is wrong, and wrong cannot be made into a right. And wrong is an enemy of truth.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
