Do They Throw The Dice In The Bible?

Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight ( Kubeia / the cube or the throwing of the dice)  of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Neither would we be carried about by every wind produced by the agendas of men which resemble the deceptive throwing of dice.

Christian love is not a mushy or “mamby pamby” type of love.  A believer is not to sugar coat things, but be gentle and respectful.  Love does not fear man or try to please him if it’s not in the will of God. True love is never “politically correct”, but rather “God correct”. God’s love is based on speaking what is correct about Him.  Love is standing up for righteousness and not backing down from it.

Love is not taking political sides. It is not Republican, Tea Partier or Democrat, but rather upholds the ideals and the person who most closely attempts to run politics, God’s way.

Much of Christ’s love is found in the knowledge of His Word. The Bible is God’s love letter to humanity, the compass for fruitful and joyous living, and the map for infinite life. If we reject it, we bring blindness to ourselves and become in danger of falling into the eternal flames of hell.

Christian love must not just be talked but walked.

Eph 4:15  But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

Buy by “TRUTHING IT” in love;

The “truth”, in this verse is a verb, literally defined as “truthing it”. The believer has the responsibility to manifest God’s ways in every aspect of her life.

Eph 4:14  That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight ( Kubeia / the cube or the throwing of the dice)  of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;

Literal Greek: That by no means would we be toddlers tossed around by the surge of vigorous waves.

Neither would we be carried about by every wind produced by the agendas of men which resemble the deceptive throwing of dice.

These type of agendas are being devised to work around the person a systematizing or methodology which produces error or ( planetizing/  from planet –to wondering).

The ploy of the devil is to create this type of ingrained thinking in the minds of men.

Any type of rhetoric or philosophies which tempts man to rebel against the Bible is the systematization of error tossing man into the foam of secularism and sending him to hell.

The rhetoric surrounding the separation of church and state is Satan’s deceptive dice throwing.  If he can build a systematic thinking of error in the hearts of Americans which thrusts God out of the governance of the nation, he will send America and Americans to hell.

 17   This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

The Christian must not conduct his life in the mindset which is focused on temporal, distracted, and frivolous ways of thinking. At the pace which America is going at, countries in East Africa will overtake us.  African children are thinkers, many of them having knowledge of what they want to do.  Poverty has forced them to seek God, read the Bible and develop strong passions for education. America on the other hand is in a crisis of distraction from the living God. The dice playing of the enemy is succeeding in pulling us away into the arrogance of self-sufficiency, and defiant independence from God. We are trading in the knowledge of God for self-centered knowledge of entertainment.  If we are not watchful, we will become the tail or the butt of a nation. Africans will come in to educate and evangelize us.

18  Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Having the deep patterns of thinking in a darkened existence, they are alienated from the God type of life through ignorance. This ignorance dwells in calloused hearts which have rejected God.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

“Sound doctrine” is a medical term defined as being healthy and whole. Only the doctrine of the Word of God can make humanity healthy. A nation becomes sick when it rejects God and His Word

“Endure” comes from the word anaecho, or the “taking of things unto oneself to have.” “What is scary about what Paul writes is his choice of the word “not”.  This Greek negative has two forms. One is the word “me” and the other one is “ouk”. The stronger one is used here, the word “ouk”, meaning absolutely not, under any circumstances.

The verse translates as follows: There will come a season when they will absolutely reject receiving wholesome teaching but after their own carnal desires will heap and collect teachers which will only tell them pleasant things.

4 and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

And indeed from what is right about God they shall turn away their ears and shall twist them upon myths.

The remedy for this malady is in the hand of the Christian believer.

2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

Proclaim the word; be present and active in doing so, when the season is good, and when there is no season. Convict or expose, rebuke and exhort with every type of longsuffering and teaching.

It is my calling to have a basic knowledge of politics and use it to expose the lies of the enemy for the sake of my fellow human being.

The decisions of political leaders, whether we like it or not, have a huge influence on our lives and the lives of our children. If I sit passively by under the guise that a Christian should not be involved in politics, I will commit a grave injustice to my children.

Titus 1:9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

Holding tight against yourself (grasping and embracing) the faithful word ….that you may have the ability by wholesome and healthy doctrine to exhort and expose the ones who contradict or take a stand against God’s word.

2 Cur 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds 

For the destruction of bulwarks; a bulwark is a fortification, a defense, a safe guard or protection. These are mindsets in human beings which are developed over years to protect or justify. A person that has been terribly hurt by parents or a pastor might produce a bulwark of defiant, anti-Biblical and anti-conservative thinking.  Liberalism/ socialist mindsets are protective justifications which shield the person from getting hurt again by these types of people. Christians must love them and show Christ and the church as not legalistic and condemning, but rather as accepting.

5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God;

And every uplifted thought or thinking which is elevated against the progressing knowledge of who God is.

Unfortunately in our country I see much high thinking elevating itself above the knowledge of God. As the old axiom goes, what goes up must come down.

Titus 1:10  For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:

For there are many of those who are unable to submit themselves to what is righteous.

There are vain babblers who are talking garbage.  Much television is a prime example of worthless and empty gibberish, which bring with it subliminal unrighteous agendas that will instill deceptive knowledge into the minds of viewers.

The word for deceivers is a quite interesting one.  It is the person who releases deception upon the judgment, evaluations and the discernment of others.

Today, in the “main stream media” we see this. There is an attack on the judgments of many distracted and gullible Americans by astute leftist journalists, who mar their discernment, turn them away from what is good and righteous, knock down the foundations of America, and conquer the country from within.

My father would always caution me, “Don’t follow the crowds because they are usually wrong.”

The communist leader Nikita Kruschev said about America, “ we will conquer you from within.’

11  Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

Whose mouths must be gagged or muzzled, who overturn or overthrow whole families, teachings things which are not needful (and by it, releasing a deceptive grace) for shameful gain or advantage.

It is the responsibility of the believer to muzzle the mouth of those who want to overthrow Christianity by sound doctrine, love and the power of God.
