There is a strange idea among many of Gods people that we must 'respect' all things ,count all views and opinions as of equal merit and if we do not then we are not showing the proper 'respect'. Jesus said "what I see the father doing that do I" Well neither should any child of God respect that which God does not. I will not nor can nor do 'respect 'Islam ' or other 'faith', false doctrine and anything that is contrary to Gods Word . For there is nothing in them to respect and as the scripture say of it there is darkness in their teaching. They that honour me I will honour says the Lord . It follows then that they that do not are not. To Abraham he promised they that bless thee,I will bless and they that curse you I will curse. This false respect then we have to get out of our heads and heart. For error will lead to error and cannot lead to God. For what comes from God will lead men to God .What does not leads men away from God . The Spirit of truth is God . Not some impartial 'power' that honours it seems everything but the truth as some would have it . Though Jesus was willing to die for all and for the sin of the world .He did not compromise at all and was as implacable with sin before the cross as he was on the cross as he is also now . The cross is the emblem of DEATH. Death to every work of the devil , every lie ,every sin every bit of corruption, every deceit and all the rest . To get a glimpse of calvary is to see Gods impacable opposition to sin . It is to get a glimpse of the wickedness of sin and what it is capable of. It is the end of the old man and all its ways . It is death to death . and the spoiler of all that the devil counted as his. To draw near to the cross is to start speaking the truth . About yourself who you do know and thenh about God who you dont. To draw near to the cross is to see the judgment of God upon your sin and some idea of the cost of your salvation. To come to the cross is to deny all self righteousness . To come to the cross is not only to get a glimpse of the judgment of God on sin. But also the depths of Gods love for them who he died for. The depths that sin will go and the depths of love to save . I shall not glory save in the death of Christ . and all the 'glories' of this world are like the leaves in autumn . and the 'wisdom' of this world are as fools . If a man does not respect my Lord and Gods work on calvary .I see no reason to respect either his opinions or his religion. For they are worthless to him and to the world . Indced a ruin to them both.
