The Christian guidelines are mandated by the Holy Bible. In the world, the guidelines have become blurred. There are none. Sin has become rampant. The human has become desensitized to killing. The killing of man & beast, of the earth, of air and water. No regard at all. Greed has become fashionable. Vanity is an every minute occurrence on everything we come in contact with. Gluttony is common place. Wrath equals war in countries we have no business in. Sloth equals entitlement without earning anything. Pride well let us look at politics in this country. A sad state of affairs. Envy comes in the form of the western worlds image of the billionaire. The image portrayed from the haves to the have nots. So the have nots can envy the haves ways. Ah yes. What is our part? A rhetorical question. The answer lies within.
Romans 12:2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
