Quotes (867)

voddie-baucham Whether God smites us immediately as He did Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5) or appears to let it slide, we can rest assured that every sin receives just recompense (Romans 3:21-26). Thus, in the economy of God every act of disobedience is ultimately punished whether we see it immediately or not. That is why it is important to teach our children that every instruction is to be obeyed right away. As they get older, they may be allowed to enter into discussion about our instructions, but that discussion should follow an act of obedience, not determine whether or not they are convinced of our position.

    Hate to have to point this out, but Anaias and Sapphira’s death had nothing to do with disobedience; it was because they lied in order to try to bring glory to themselves.

    Lying IS disobedience as well as dishonesty (2 cor.4:2). We are commanded in Colossians 3:9 not to lie to one another. All sin is a direct act of disobedience against the commands of God.

    Amen! Sin is sin, and all sin warrants death! If not for God’s eternal plan of redeeming a people to and for Himself, we would all be on the fast-track for hell.
