“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness.” -Romans 1:18


To what degree does the evil manifest in man obscure the truth of our Lord preventing others from perceiving of it? The degree this occurs cannot be understated and a Christian should reflect consistently on this fact.

Perhaps it has always been this way, but there is no shortage of people out in the world today who see something done by a particular person who has labeled himself “Christian,” and thereby due to this persons actions, they are deemed in the observers mind to represent Christianity or Christ as a whole. It is almost scary, but we are called not only to be ambassadors for Christ, but also representations of Him. Thus, if we use the word Christian, people will associate us with him, especially if they fail to know the gospel.

This not only obscures the truth, but perverts it. It’s something all Christians should be aware if they truly love the Lord.
