Let’s say you came over to my house for coffee and brownies. Yay! Talk time!
Let’s say you were just getting ready to sink your teeth into this delicious looking, gooey brownie, when I oh-so casually mention that there is only a teeny tiny itsy-bitsy bit of Poop in them.
It’s just a teeny bit of poop.
You wouldn’t still eat them? Not even one bite?
Yeah, me neither.
How is it then, that we’ll watch a movie with just a “Little bit” of swearing in it, or a “Little bit” of blood shed, or “just a little” casual sex or what have you?
Satan is on the prowl people, like a lion. (I Peter 5:8) His attacks are not always LOUD, they can be as quiet as a whispered negative thought in your ear. He lulls us to sleep with his sweet lies, as he slowly turns up the heat. He seeks to destroy us, it’s his one mission in life. He sneakily blurs the lines on our boundaries until we no longer realize when they have been crossed, then suddenly, the pot is boiling and we are getting burned, big time. At this victory, he throws his head back and screams with laughter. Success.
Proverbs 16:25 “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.”
The door to your home can be opened to the devil by a single magazine, chapter book, commercial or TV show. A little bit of promiscuity, a little bit of sorcery or witch craft, a little bit of sex before marriage, just a few, blood sucking, back-from-the-dead vampire scenes, just a few times of using the Lord’s name in vain, just a couple homosexual kisses.
All blatantly going against what the infallible word of God teaches.
So really, is there such a thing as “Just a little bit of poop”?
James 1:2 “So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the message God has planted in your hearts, for it is strong enough to save your souls.”
Hebrews 12:1b & 2, “….let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily hinders our progress. And let us run with endurance the race that God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, on whom our faith depends from start to finish.”
Run the race, keep your eyes on Jesus, and keep these kinds of Brownies out of your home, head, heart and mouth, even if they contain “just a little bit of poop”.
