Lies Of Enemy: Because You Can You Should

One of the biggest lies the enemy tells believers in my opinion is because you can you should.  Contrary to popular opinion the enemy often chooses to work in subtle ways opposed to more open or overt ways. So Trell what does this lie look like?  So glad you asked!!  For example, just because you have a few extra bucks doesn't mean you have to go shopping! Why not give to someone in need? Or donate to a mission effort? The enemy wants you to focus on doing things that are not necessarily sinful but  things that are not constructive or beneficial!!  However, it is sinful to have the ability to help your brother and then willful choose not to do so. Same is true when it comes to how we spend our time! Just because you have the day off doesn't mean you have to lay around and do nothing!  Why not volunteer that time at a local school, soup kitchen, or visit someone in the hospital or nursing home?  Once again there is nothing sinful about laying around and doing nothing on your day off but just because you can doesn't mean you should!  However, it is sinful not respond to those in need when you have the ability to meet the need.

The Bible declares in 1 Corinthians 10:23 that  "everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive.  In others words the writer is suggesting to us just because you can doesn't mean you should!  

Scripture Reference: 1 Cornithians10:23
