“…. that the name of God and his doctrine be not blasphemed” 1 Timothy 6:1

Throughout the Bible, those who claim to know God and belong to Him were enjoined and commanded to live their lives in such a way that the watching public will not blaspheme the name of the Lord. The way we live our lives will determine if the Lord and His Word will be honored or ridiculed by our neighbors or not. (Titus 2:5,8,10)

  1. Today, Christians are the Bible that unbelievers are reading. They watch our lives, words, actions, behaviors and actions to see if we are true believers in our Lord Jesus or not. If we claim to be Christians but our daily choices speaks otherwise, then they will speak against our God and block their hearts from turning to the Lord from their own sins.
  1. Many Christians, pastors, Evangelist’s, prophets, apostles, bishops and arch-bishops have done things that serves as stumbling-blocks to the faith of others and drag the name of our Lord in the mud. The more reason many are blaspheming the name of the Lord and going back to their sins.
  1. Christians and ministers are to live morally upright and sound lives that will serve as true examples to others, because one good example is worth more than 10,000 sermons. But when a believer, talk less of a Pàstor sins secretly and fails to repent for years and still continues in his secret sins, God will expose him to public shame and ridicule, though ignorant and ungodly people will still run their mouths against the Lord, which will lead to their judgements.
  1. King David sins secretly with mrs Uriah for months and God judged him openly because he gave occasion to the enemy of the Lord to blaspheme His precious name. (11 Samuel 12:14) Every secret sin is first against the Lord and his people, that’s why we must sincerely repent, turn away and restitute with the victims.
  1. In the secret sins of pastors, their spiritual father, just like prophet Nathan did to King David, must discipline them, withdraw them from pulpit and make them to seek God for restoration. Condoned sins will lead to great consequences, now or later.
  1. Our God is no respecter of persons, so if you live in secret sins and yet condemning others, your own expose is soon coming, unless you quickly, genuinely repent, turn away and restitute your ways. For  those who brings the name and word of God into disrepute by their lifestyles will find God fighting them. Because He will always clear His name!
