It is impossible to please God without faith. We’ve quoted that verse for years without really grasping its full meaning! We only participate in God’s promises because we believe His truth and choose it for our life! When we don’t believe His truth, i.e. His instruction, His wisdom, His revelation of Himself. etc., we then have to find a substitute for the truth by which to govern our lives. The rejection of God’s truth, God’s morals, values and standards is the pathway of iniquity.
The thing that makes iniquity so dangerous is the fact that you cannot recover the person who does not honor God’s Word as the absolute truth. If God’s Word is not the absolute, then there is no anchor for the soul. There is no definitive resource by which to guide our life. Once truth becomes subjective, i.e. interpreted by our personal experiences, we have become gods unto ourselves.
