Conscience and Shame Are God Himself
الياس بجاني: الضمير والخجل هما الله في داخل الإنسان

Elias Bejjani/September 12/2019

Freedom without moral, ethical and fear of God restrictions is a tool of satanic moral and social chaos.

He who abandons the graces of shame and conscience in his both mind and conduct he practically defies and rejects Our Father Almighty God because these two graces are God Himself

The Sodom and Gomorrah fate must be envisioned for any society where freedom becomes a means for immoral practises and a vehicle of heresies.

The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who have sex with men, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” (01 Corinthians 06/07-11)

He who kills the Godly graces of “SHAME” and conscience in his both mind and conduct he practically defies and rejects Our Father Almighty God because these two graces are God Himself.

Our Father Almighty God who created us on his image and because we are His children and due to the fact that He wants to have us back in His heavenly mentions, He remained with us through these both graces of shame and conscience.

Through these two Godly graces Almighty God warns us when ever we do, say, contemplate or see, any thing that is morally or ethically not acceptable and that breaches the teaching of the holy Bible. God granted these two Holy graces only to us, His children and not to any other creature.

Accordingly, and because our bodies are Gods’ temples, freedom is a blessing and a gift provided that its use remains contained in the context of all that is, moral, ethical, respect of self and others, and most importantly that it does not go against any of the 10 commandments in particular and the biblical teaching in general.Every moral teaching in Christianity aims to lead us to the true freedom of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32).

Both the Gospel and the Church call us to be faithful and not to ever forget or ignore the fact, “The creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay” (Romans 8:21).

Freedom is fulfilled when we live the commandments of the Lord, hear His Word, and are enlighten by the teachings of His apostles and saints.

Accordingly, any call or conduct for or of freedom outside the truth, and apart the full sovereignty of Jesus Christ over our lives, is a surrender to wrongdoing temptations, evil illusions and flaws. Freedom is that “nothing dominates” us so we can remain free from sin.

Definitely, there are limits for human freedom on the moral level. A believer in God and in His Holy Bible MUST not allow any thought, practice or earthly temptation to restrict or deprive him of his freedom which is Godly gift.

All those who wrongly believe that freedom is an open ticket to do or say any thing with no shame or conscience, and without the fear of God or His Day Of Judgment, and at the same time falsely think that their bodies are their, all those wrongdoers are advised and before it is too late to wake up and read thoroughly the below verses from saint Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians ( 06/From 12-20) that addresses sexual immoralities:
(“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.)

Man was created in the image and likeness of God, and in the form of his freedom. He is a free intellectual creature and God gave him the capabilities and privileges to master on all that is on earth.

Accordingly he has an obligation to safeguard and hold on to this Godly gift that makes him different and distinguishes from all other creatures.

Man is required to continuously appreciate God’s gifts of freedom, sovereignty and wisdom, and to utilize them with fear of God in a bid to reach perfection in his spiritual life, and in his endeavors to improve and tame his creative talents.

Man is called on to be a genuine loving and giving creature, and to free himself from all that is hatred, grudges, selfishness, moral-ethical deviations, thievery, jealousy and most importantly to keep away from sexual immoralities that defile his body which is Gods’ temple.

Freedom in Christianity is achieved and enjoyed through the Holy Spirit grace. It lies in the man’s will and ability to break the shackles of sin, and to fight with faith and prayers all evil Satanic temptations that might make him to stumble.

Freedom is to live the fullness of life, in repentance, humility, transparency, God’s full obedience, purification and love. Man attains and obtains his actual freedom through biblical education and by obeying His Father Almighty God and drawing strength from him.

May people sadly give different definitions for freedom according to their earthly goals, wishes, pleasures and aspirations. They wrongly see that freedom it a human moral value that is devoid of every faith dimension and accordingly they tailor and shape it to facilitate, justify and legitimize their wrongdoings in every life aspect.

In summary, It is a holy and moral duty and obligation to witness for the truth loudly and courageously, and to protect ourselves, our families, our church and our societies from the evil heretic threats, and from all that is social bizarre and religiously goes against the Gospel and the commandments of our Lord Jesus. These numerous heretic and sinful acts are spread and advocated under the tag of freedom through music, singing, paints, movies, plays etc.

May Al Mighty God protect and safeguard Lebanon and its people from all that is sinful, evil, heretic.
