Discussion for Habakkuk 1

  • A disciple
    To whom much is given, of them will the more be demanded. Sin in Christians is not only worse, but if un-repented of and that one's heart hardened in it; it brings blood guilt of all those whom he was supposed to be a witness of the grace of God; but failed! That was the very reason for the world of the beginning being ultimately destroyed, because of the apostasy and abandoning themselves to sin.

    Betty...sin is sin...believers forgiven...others not.
  • Betty mcintyre
    Are the sins of believers and unbelievers equally offensive to God?
  • A disciple
    "Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous." Everything for which the devil slanders God and accuses His People of, he himself is the one doing those things! The children of the devil can only imagine to satisfy their lust for power and authority by slaughter and oppression; and this is their religion!
  • BSP
    Verse 2: We may feel that God is not listening to our prayers, but we have the assurance that he hears our prayers and he will answer them in due time.
  • A disciple
    "Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceeds." (1:4) We seek the Lord with all our hearts, and endeavor to let our light shine. We pray for our leaders, and for the good to prevail. We help by our prayers, and by our obedience to walk in truth. But the world around us is set on "another" course!
