Remember,repparttar Serpent is more subtle than any beast ofrepparttar 126937 field. Inrepparttar 126938 garden, inrepparttar 126939 beginning of it all, his very first attempt to destroy our relationship with God was to deceive Eve into doubting God's word. "Nowrepparttar 126940 serpent was more subtle than any beast ofrepparttar 126941 field whichrepparttar 126942 LORD God had made. And he said untorepparttar 126943 woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree ofrepparttar 126944 garden?" (Genesis 3:1) Eve was quick to jump atrepparttar 126945 seed of doubt offered to her, in order to obtain what her eyes had seen and desired. We are no different today.

In order to appear modern and "up to date," we jump at scientific jargoon that encourages us to doubtrepparttar 126946 very Word of God. We try and become "progressive" Christians, mixing evolution and Creation. We reason in ourselves that, "maybe it didn't happenrepparttar 126947 way I have always thought and been taught. I still believe in God and no matter how it happened, we really know God did it."

But that is not true. The Holy Bible very clearly statesrepparttar 126948 process of Creation. We even knowrepparttar 126949 order in whichrepparttar 126950 animals and mankind was created. There is no reason to guess or doubt. Either we believe God at His word, or we don't. If we don't, thenrepparttar 126951 blood of Jesus Christ cannot cover our sins forrepparttar 126952 Scripture states that, "whosoever BELIEVETH in him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) To believe is an absolute necessity. There is no way to half believe in Jesus Christ. Either we do or we don't: simple as that.

We do not have to be rich or poor to enter Heaven. We do not have to be able to read and write. It is not important whether our friends and peers consider us well read or intelligent. The only ultimately important requirement is that we believe on Jesus Christ forrepparttar 126953 remission of our sins and take Him at His word.

"Keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerningrepparttar 126954 faith. Grace be with thee. Amen." (1 Timothy 6:20-21)

"A false balance is abomination torepparttar LORD: but a just weight is his delight." (Pro. 11:1) God's word declares that if one man increases another must decrease. Jesus' ministry could not begin until John's decreased so much that he died. Thereforerepparttar 126936 Biblical precedent had been set,repparttar 126937 fleshly man cannot increase withoutrepparttar 126938 spirit man decreasing. If your flesh feasts . . . your soul must famish. It is a law of God.

In our everyday lives we fight and, byrepparttar 126939 everlasting mercies of God, we must win this battle of flesh and spirit. "Forrepparttar 126940 flesh lusteth againstrepparttar 126941 Spirit, andrepparttar 126942 Spirit againstrepparttar 126943 flesh: and these are contraryrepparttar 126944 one torepparttar 126945 other: so that ye cannot dorepparttar 126946 things that ye would." (Gal. 5:17) We are commanded to "Love notrepparttar 126947 world, neitherrepparttar 126948 things that are inrepparttar 126949 world. If any man loverepparttar 126950 world,repparttar 126951 love ofrepparttar 126952 Father is not in him. For all that is inrepparttar 126953 world,repparttar 126954 lust ofrepparttar 126955 flesh, andrepparttar 126956 lust ofrepparttar 126957 eyes, andrepparttar 126958 pride of life, is not ofrepparttar 126959 Father, but is ofrepparttar 126960 world." (I John 2:15-16) Therefore, let us learn fromrepparttar 126961 mistakes ofrepparttar 126962 past and remember always that though God "gave them their request" he also "sent leanness into their soul."
