Sermon Notes

Proverbs 14:9 tells us that fools mock at the guilt offering, but the upright enjoy acceptance. The guilt offering comes from Leviticus 6:1-7 where God made a way for someone to seek forgiveness for some sin that they had “gotten away with” but later felt guilty for it and wanted to repent. In essence, the guilt offering is repentance. Proverbs 14:9 tells us that fools mock at repentance, and by extension they mock sin. They are bragging about not taking sin seriously or caring much about their sinful actions. They take pride in doing the wrong thing.  It’s interesting but we truly live in a world now where most people see what was once evil as good and what was once good as evil. We live in culture where almost everyone brags, “I always do the wrong thing.” That’s not just a weird flex, that’s an evil flex and it needs to be corrected. You may not see yourself or your actions as evil but that doesn’t mean you are doing the right thing either. Regardless of how you define evil, evil reveals itself in how it destroys your soul! And it does so in three ways; it deadens your caution so that your actions are evil, it dishes out consequences when you words are evil, and it destroys your conscience so that your mind becomes evil.
