Faith is a matter of the heart! If your understanding of scripture does not bring it into your heart then you have a long way to go. What impresses God the most is faith that is in your heart. Your intellectual ascension of scripture should be matched by the level of faith that is in you.
I contend, it is still possible to have real faith in this world. It’s still possible to do what is right before God no matter how dire things may seem.
Do not believe the devil when he says everyone is doing so it should be ok. It doesn’t matter how many Facebook likes, hearts, tweets, re-tweets or views, viral or trending a post is – If it is wrong before God it will always be wrong and for you that is not a license to copy or follow it.
