Can we talk Wednesday

Question: Why do some people not have fear of the Lord?

Scripture: Psalms 36:1-4

   I have a message from God in my heart
   concerning the sinfulness of the wicked:[b]
   There is no fear of God
   before their eyes.

In their own eyes they flatter themselves
    too much to detect or hate their sin.
The words of their mouths are wicked and deceitful;
    they fail to act wisely or do good.
Even on their beds they plot evil;
    they commit themselves to a sinful course
    and do not reject what is wrong.

Answer: Please listen to the video for my answer.

  1. Thank you for sharing!
    I agree, their are people that don’t have a healthy fear of God or just don’t believe!
    I too will pray for these people, they come to repentance believe in Jesus for salvation!

  2. Pastor Sneed, thanks so much for sharing that experience. When I first read the post (before listening to the video), it touched me because of an experience that I had recently. It was a different experience from that you had, but essentially contains what is written in Psalms 36:1-4.

    There are people who have no respect or fear of God because they only see people and their agenda and do not take our testimonies and callings serious. They have spiritual envy and lack of understanding of God’s grace. Within their hearts they wonder why God did not call them to do what you do because surely, they think they are worthy and more deserving than all others.

    They challenge us with deception and illusions. What motivates their heart is the temptation they use. In your case, the perpetrator is motivated by greed. The appeal to come to another land to speak was suppose to appeal to any greed within you. That was suppose to cloak all discernment.

    And of course, when those who use temptation to deceive are unsuccessful, they retort in a manner that is likened to “If thou be a son of God, then do ______” Which by default means, if you don’t do what they want, then you are not a son of God. They seek to uncover pride, ego to take focus off God.

    Here’s a huge “Amen” to what you said about God’s discernment.

  3. Thank you for this video. You are on point as always. I also believe that some people are born sociopaths and pyschopaths. Not to sound morbid but if you’ve ever listened to interviews with serial killers, mass murderers, rapists, child molesters, etc…

    Truly they have no fear of God but no concept or right or wrong or rather they don’t think universally held morals or values apply to them. Even people who are con artists only see people in terms of what they can do for them. Selfish. Self-Centered. Ego. Tyrants, megalomaniacs & dictators fall into this category.

    Throughout history we’ve know of so-called leaders who murdered their own people, ransacked other countries and eliminated entire tribes of peoples who were different races, religions, cultures, etc… I know this may sound strange but even people who are atheists know the difference between right and wrong and obey the law or cheat other people.

    Also I have seen in my own family one particular cousin comes to mind who was born evil. He was wicked as a child beating and cursing his own mother. My father often had to go to his sisters house to protect her from her own son. As he got older the situation only got worse. He sired children from every race known to man. When he died my other cousins could not even locate some of his kids. But worst of all and I did not find this out until much later that he was a child molester. A pervert. None of us including his New York children attended his funeral and we were all glad when he died.

    Scams are another form of evil. To tell the truth they have no fear of the law either!! I’m truly sorry you had to go through that experience. This is probably not nice to say but the world is better off without these sick unrepentant individuals. Take Bernie Madoff for example. He cheated many people. Destroyed many lives. Bankrupted innocent people but in the end God, the Universe, or Karma got him. One son committed suicide the other died of cancer. The wives of those sons changed their last names and moved away. So in the end Mr. Madoff lost not just his freedom but even his family. Retribution & Justice did prevail.
