Questions that beg answers:
When God forgives me for my sins, will I still suffer consequences?
Will the consequences be thrown into the sea of forgetfulness along with my sins?
Could my sins cause future generations to suffer?
Could one careless sin lead to lifelong consequences?
Will my enemies also suffer from consequences?
I sat down with Merrily Madero to discuss her new book, The Truth About Consequences, and get answers to these pressing questions. We took a hard look at some of the sins mentioned in the Bible and the impact those sins had on the lives of those who committed them. Ripple effects from our actions, both good and bad, are seen all throughout Scripture.
Satan sweetens the bait! He tempts with sin and works hard at hiding the consequences. The enemy whispers in our ear, "God will forgive you. He has to! Go ahead. I dare you!" But he leaves off the part about the consequences ... and sometimes those are lifelong.
The father of lies and the master of deceit would like to deceive us into thinking there are no consequences to our sins, especially those that have been forgiven.
To hear Merrily Madero and I share the personal consequences we've endured, as well as those God has redeemed, listen this week's Fire Starter podcast on Charisma Podcast Network.
