Back to Basics
God's Call to Repentence - Lesson Ten

Like the Children of Israel many look for someone else to blame for their own sins. In their search for self-justification the Israelites they came up with a really cute and logical proverb that went like this: “The fathers may eat the sour grapes but the children’s teeth will be set on edge.” This meant that whatever the fathers of each successive generation did may not affect them, but it would surely affect their children and grandchildren. This was Israel’s way of blaming... their forefathers and even God, for the sin that they committed and the judgments they had to face.  

In using this proverb they absolved themselves from the penalty for their own sin and place it upon the head of their ancestors. It is amazing what people will do to continue in their sinful lifestyles isn’t it? The word “Repent” has seemingly lost its meaning in our modern society – however, God has made this forgotten command a prerequisite for salvation. Join us at the New Iberia Church of Christ this Sunday (2-16-2014 @ 10:00 AM) as we continue our Back to Basics series with the message: “God’s Call to Repentance.”
