It was Bob Jones, Sr. who said... “Do right! Though the stars fall, do right!” What a powerful and needy message for this generation today! Never before in America have we seen such wickedness, perversion and disregard for the Word of God. Americans have sunk so low into the mire of sin and iniquity that child-murder is no longer a concern. Even our pastors have become apostate and now consider abortion a “minor concern.”
We must always keep in mind that we have a CHOICE to do right or wrong in life. When you think of it, life is nothing more but a series of decisions we make, right or wrong.
We have all made wrong decisions at times. Would to God we hadn't, but the choice was ours to make. God knows that it is human nature for us to BLAME others when things go bad, which is why He said in James 1:13... “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man.” When Adam decided of his own free will to eat of the forbidden fruit in Genesis, he blamed God... “And the man said, The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat" (Genesis 3:12). Eve BLAMED the serpent, Genesis 3:13, “And the LORD God said unto the woman, What is this that thou hast done? And the woman said, The serpent beguiled me, and I did eat.” Society today is filled with blame-shifters, who seek to blame God and others for their own sins and faults.
Do Right in Your Marriage
I receive many letters from upset woman who have sinfully divorced their husbands, and 100% of the time attempt to justify their divorce by BLAMING their husband, saying... “He did this, or he did that!” Those wives SINNED against God by divorcing their husbands. They couldn't get away with this if our society wasn't so wicked. Divorce should not be allowed. It is way too easy for people to quit their marriage in the United States. We are an evil people.
Women who file for divorce, blaming their husband, are self-righteous. I am saddened that marriage in America has diminished to the point where it means nothing anymore. One man who sinfully divorced his wife said to me... “Life's too short to waste the best years of our life.” That is a very selfish and sinful attitude. Whatever happened to one's promise at the marriage alter... “for better, for worse; until death do us part?” LIARS! America is a nation of liars! People ought to DO RIGHT and remain with their spouse no matter what; thus honoring their marriage vows.
Do Right in the Life You Live
DO RIGHT! Abortion is the wrong thing to do. Drinking booze is the wrong thing to do. Gambling is the wrong thing to do. Pornography is the wrong thing to do. Lying is the wrong thing to do. Fornication is the wrong thing to do. Witchcraft is the wrong thing to do. Women dressing half naked is the wrong thing to do. A wife disobeying her husband is the wrong thing to do. Remaining silent about abortion is the wrong thing to do. Not caring is the wrong thing to do. Rock 'N' Roll is the wrong thing to do. DO RIGHT!
Galatians 6:9 states... “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” It is not easy to do right in this sinful world, where we are surrounded with temptations on every side (1st John 5:19); BUT with God's grace (help) we can DO RIGHT!
We must not try to live the Christian life in our own strength, but in the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said He would come to us and help us (John 14:18). This means we desperately need to live in God's Word and saturate our mind with Biblical Truth... “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11). The Bible will keep us from sin, or else sin will keep us from the Bible. Most people are woefully ignorant of the Scriptures, but they can readily name a dozen brands of beer and all the sleaziest shows on TV.
DO RIGHT! Watching filth on TV is sin... “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:32). Americans love violence, rape, murder, immorality and every form of wickedness imaginable on the big movie screen (Romans 1:32). Movies are a billion-dollar-a-year industry in America. Woe unto America!
Do Right Concerning the Poor
Every day an estimated 18,000 children starve to death in this world. I recently saw a commercial on TV, where a man was panicking because some child was about to blow the petals from a dead dandelion flower onto his lawn. I couldn't help but realize just how spoiled we Americans are. It is more than just a commercial. Americans are absolutely consumed with themselves—their lawns, homes, cars, boats and hobbies; while 18,000 kids starve to death every day.
I detest seeing Americans having a good time, because we've become a bunch of spoiled rotten brats in America. Thankfully, judgment is finally coming upon America. As mean as it may sound, I'm glad tens-of-millions of Americans are unemployed and now losing their homes. Why? Because we get what we deserve! What will it take to humble us before God? When I think of the wickedness of SIN CITY, I rejoice that our nation is becoming a Police State, because that is what we deserve as a nation. America has become The Great Satan, just as some of the Arab nations have said. It is true, we have become a Satanic nation. Even the Church of Satan admits this.
I was watching the Food Network one day and the chef was using Saffron spice. I wondered what Saffron was, so I went to look it up. Saffron costs about $600.00 per pound! We Americans are spoiled when we can afford $50 for an ounce of spice! Just give me salt and pepper please.
It's even more insane when you look at Hollywood. Actress, Alicia Witt, paid $2,700,000 for a single hat! ...
While children are starving to death around the world, fools like this are spending millions to buy a hat. Alicia Witt spent $2,700,000 on that lousy hat! It is beyond comprehension. Truly, Satan is the god of this crazy world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). The Devil must be a real sicko! How could anyone justify WASTING so much money on foolishness when the poor are starving to death. While children are eating bugs to survive, the wicked are living high-on-the-hog! Did you know that America now has 8,900,000 MILLIONAIRES? Yet we are starving to death spiritually!
Our planet is fast-becoming a large insane asylum.
"There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men." —Proverb 30:14
Meet billionaire, Bill Gates, who has donated billions of dollars to abort more babies and sterilize unsuspected mothers. Instead of helping the poor, Bill and Melinda Gates would rather get rid of them completely. Planned Parenthood ought to be renamed Planned Herodhood. Exodus 20:13 is still in the Bible folks... THOU SHALT NOT KILL!
Do Right Concerning Giving
You shouldn't be giving money to the rich. The poor need our help, but what do most people do? They give money to the rich instead. Don't just give money to a charitable organization. Find out exactly where every penny of the charity's money goes? Don't support any organization where the top executives are paid six-digit salaries. Do your homework. I recently sent a kindly worded e-mail to www.worldorphans.org to inquire what their top executives get paid, including benefits? To no surprise, they never wrote back. Try it yourself. You need to ask these questions.
I am shocked how foolish people are with their hard-earned money. MOST charitable organizations are a SCAM!!! I remember when I lived in Chicago years ago, hearing in the news that the Mayor's wife, Maggie Daley, was receiving $92,000 a year salary working for a "non-profit" charitable organization. I just don't understand that folks! No one working for a "charitable" organization should get paid that kind of money! You have to understand that charitable organizations are considered NON-PROFIT, and thus pay NO TAXES. Charitable organizations are some of the biggest scams in America, which includes most churches!
So be cautious who you give money to. Better yet, start your own organization and then you'll know where every penny goes. Also, there are many Missionaries on the mission field in poor countries whom you can work with to help the needy. I would NEVER give money to any organization until I personally went to visit their headquarters, talked to their employees, and saw their complete financial disclosure.
Perhaps you've seen James and Betty Robison on TV begging for money for the poor, showing children searching in Cambodian garbage dumps for anything to make their life better. The show is Life for Today, as seen on TBN. The appeal is heart-wrenching, and the needs are real; BUT where does all those contributions, fifty million a year, go? Well, James Robison doesn't think it's any of your business, so he refuses to disclose complete financial information to the Better business Bureau. Hypocritically, Robison claims on his website, "LIFE Outreach International maintains a high standard of financial responsibility and accountability." To the contrary, LIFE Outreach International Association of Churches (LOI) FAILS to meet three of the BBB's Standards for Charity Accountability. READ MORE
So, tens-of-thousands of people are $50,000,000 poorer each year, who send James Robison their hard-earned money, believing they've done a good thing. Ha! A fool and his money are soon parted. If a charitable organization DOES RIGHT, then there shouldn't be anything to hide!
Right, Mr. Pat Roberson? To no surprise, The 700 Club also refuses to disclose their finances to the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Organizations that pretend to care about the poor, who funnel much of the profits into their own pockets, are deceitful and sinful. Does some of the money get to the poor? Oh yes, but those "ministry" tycoons are living in million-dollar mansions—owning boats, fancy cars, and enjoying lucrative vacations and fringe benefits. Pat Roberson has an estimated worth of hundreds-of-millions of dollars. Some say one billion. Minister of righteousness? I think not.
Benny Hinn milks the public for $150,000,000 every year. Can that many people be idiots? No, they are blinded by Satan. They really think God is going to bless them because they sent in a donation for $100 or more, no matter how wicked or Godless their life may be. Listen to The 700 Club sometime and you'll get the impression that nothing else is required of a person to receive God's abundant blessing, except to send a donation to The 700 Club. Poppycock!
Do Right Concerning Salvation
The Catholic Church is no different than The 700 Club in it's scheme to get your money. You can live like the Devil, just so long as you attend mass and financially support the Church, then you're ok according to the priests. Don't you believe it!
I've never worked with a Catholic man yet who didn't indulge in pornography and curse in God's name. They are a Godless bunch! They speak of God with their lips, but their hearts are far from Him (Matthew 15:8). You see, they have religion without Christ. Did you know that the Mardi Gras festival is Catholic in origin, and means "Fat Tuesday." The idea is that you can live in total debauchery and sin on Tuesday (which they certainly do), but then make everything right on ASH WEDNESDAY (the day after Mardi Gras). The entire notion of Mardi Gras is evil to the core! Catholics think they can live any way they want, committing horrible sins, just so long as they confess to the priest and go to mass. It doesn't work that way. Catholics do not have a license to sin, but they think they do.
If you are one of the 168,000,000 Catholics in America, then I beg you to open the Bible, God's Word, and SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES as Jesus commanded in John 5:39. Catholicism is a prisonhouse of religion, rotten to the core. Do right concerning the Scriptures, and turn away from the blasphemous whore of the Catholic Mary. Jesus' mother was a kind and Godly woman—and a dirty, rotten, sinner as well—just as we all are (Romans 3:10,19-23). Please read, the Immaculate Deception. If you want to DO RIGHT concerning salvation, then Ye Must Be Born Again!
Ultimately, every decision we make in life must be accounted for (Matthew 12:36; Romans 14:12). Whether we DO RIGHT, or not, is up to us. There's always a right thing to do, and a wrong thing to do—a high road we can take, or a low road. Regardless of our choices, we will have no one to blame but ourselves for the decisions we have made in this lifetime. May we search the Scriptures and ask God's Holy Spirit to guide us, to help us make the right decisions in life! This life 'twill soon be past, and only that which we have done for Christ will last.
"Do right! Though the stars fall, do right!"
BOB JONES, SR.
1883 - 1968
“The test of your character is what it takes to stop you.”
Robert Reynolds Jones, best known as Dr. Bob Jones, Sr., was born October 30, 1883, the eleventh of twelve children, in
. Converted at age 11, he was a Sunday school superintendent at 12 and ordained to the ministry by the Methodist church at 15. Skipperville, Alabama
“Dr. Bob” was a Christ-exalting, sin-condemning preacher who first began preaching in the cotton fields, in country churches and in brush arbors. Later he held huge campaigns in American cities large and small and preached around the world. Billy Sunday called him the greatest evangelist of all time, saying, “He has the wit of Sam Jones, the homely philosophy of George Stuart, the eloquence of Sam Small and the spiritual fervency of Dwight L. Moody.”
He saw crowds up to 10,000 in his meetings, with many thousands finding Christ in one single campaign. But Dr. Jones was more than an evangelist. As a pioneer in the field of Christian education, he founded
in 1927. Bob Jones University
Behind every man’s ministry is a philosophy. Dr. Jones’s was spelled out in the sentence sermons to his “preacher boys” in chapels at the college. Who in Christian circles has not heard or read some of these: “Duties never conflict!”; “It is a sin to do less than your best.”; “The greatest ability is dependability.”; “It is never right to do wrong in order to get a chance to do right.” “DO RIGHT!” It was the philosophy that motivated his ministry, saturated his sermons and spearheaded his school.
His voice was silenced by death January 16, 1968. His influence lives on today, and Christians will for generations to come be challenged, as he said, to “DO RIGHT IF THE STARS FALL!” -SOURCE
