Why People Fail God - Simple Bible Studies

Why People Fail God Many different reasons all leading to the same ultimate destruction. Introduction

Many people are failures. They fail society, loved ones, and friends. They fail in business, and they fail in school. Most of the time, we realize the truth is that they failed because they did not seek passing. They are lazy and indifferent. They only thought about their own selves. So how do people fail God?

THEY FAIL TO COUNT THE COST Before conversion, they fail to take the cost into account. Luke 14:25-35. They fail to consider, "denying themselves." Matthew 16:24; Luke 9:23. They fail to realize that 99.44% effort won't do. Mostly they fail, because they never had any intention of being a follower of Christ.

THEY FAIL TO LISTEN TO GOD'S MESSENGERS God has been sending His messengers for thousands of years. Yet the results are usually the same. Jeremiah 7:25-28; 2 Timothy 4:1-6. THEY FAIL TO DEVELOP VIRTUES OF A CHRISTIAN

This happens when they really do not repent of their lifestyle When they make no changes in their behavior. 2 Peter 1:5-11. THEY FAIL BECAUSE OF WRONG ASSOCIATION

This was Solomon's problem. 1 Kings 11:1-13. It can also be our problem. 1 Corinthians 15:33. Your companions guide you whether you realize it or not.

THEY FAIL TO BE LED BY THE WORD OF GOD They continue in their ignorance. Acts 17:11; 2 Timothy 2:15; Hosea 4:6. Psalm 119 has 176 reasons for learning and respecting Gods laws. Gods word is truth. John 17:17 THEY FAIL BECAUSE OF THE DEMANDS OF THIS LIFE

Consider the parable of the sower and the soils. Luke 8:9-14. Life has so many distractions, And we are the ones to allow the distractions to keep us out of our duty to God. THEY FAIL BECAUSE OF THE DESIRE TO BE RICH AND TO HOLD ON TO THEIR RICHES Matthew 19:16-22.

Paul warns against such. 1 Timothy 6:6-10, 17-19. John also warns about worldly desires. 1 John 2:15-17. This is also described by the term covetousness which amounts to idolatry. Colossians 3:5 THEY FAIL BECAUSE SIN IS SO DECEITFUL Hebrews 3:12,13. While sin is deceitful, we must remember that when we sin, it is OUR choice.

The deceitfulness comes from our own lusts. James 1:13-14 THEY FAIL BECAUSE OF FALSE DOCTRINE All who teach anything different from what the Bible teaches is teaching false doctrine. This can happen when people add to scripture; It can also happen when people delete things from scripture.

It also happens when they change the message. 1 Timothy 4:1-4; Acts 20:28-31. THEY FAIL BECAUSE THEY ARE SET IN THEIR OWN WAYS Proverbs 14:14; 1:30-33. Pig headed, stubborn, or whatever you call it. One can reject God because He does not fit their own concept of what God should be.

THEY LOSE THEIR LOVE FOR GOD In all likelihood, they never really developed a love for God. This just happens to be an excuse. John 14:15; Revelation 2:4; Matthew 24:12. THEY FAIL BECAUSE OF IN-ACTIVITY AND COMPLACENCY

This has another word: Apathy James 2:14-26 Everyone who fails in anything has this problem. The person who gets nothing out of church when they do not attend services is this type of person. Such an excuse is a cop-out for failing to do what

they should have done. Conclusion There are many reasons people fail God. Most of these reasons listed come about because the people do not put forth an effort in trying to please God. Truth is, they are worthless individuals, and are probably trying to place the blame anywhere but upon themselves.

That will not work on judgment day. Are you ready to put your failure in the past, and start serving the Lord?
