By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr.

This is part one of a five part series.

TEXT:

Prov. 4:23 .. Keep they heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

1 Tim. 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,

and destitute of the truth, supposing that GAIN is godliness: from such turn away?

2 Chron. 7:14 It is time we humble ourselves, fall on our knees, pray, and seek the great God, repent,

turn from our evil ways, --- we can do something about this heart problem, -----

GOD WILL HEAR US, HE WILL FORGIVE US, AND HEAL OUR LAND.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

#1 Today, I ponder what is the heart of the problem?

As I ponder this I soon come to a brilliant conclusion,

THE PROBLEM OF THE HEART IS THE HEART OF THE PROBLEM!

We would have no deaths from drunk drivers, if there was no problem in the heart!

We would never hear of child abuse, if we could correct the problems of the heart?

Divorce is killing the family that we know as the foundation of the work of God and the church, we have serious heart problems.

Often the baby sitter knows the child more than mom or dad, --- a heart problem?

Our kids carry guns and pornography to school, and can’t quote the Ten Commandments --

which to them are but 10 Suggestions for the Old Crowd, ---a heart problem?

Our ex-president can have sex in the Oval Office and his popularity go up 10 points, ---a heart problem?

A Senator announces he is homosexual, and when he returns to his home state they have a party for him --- a heart problem.

Our teens are dying of aids, and we abort 4,000 babies a day, --- we have a serious heart problem.

Millions watch Jerry Springer nightly to watch fights where the guest brag of all kinds of sick,

sexual perversions and American watches and screams in excitement as the guards pull clothes off the fighting guest, ---

we have heart problems.

Hundreds of Sunday school teachers, children church workers and pastors resign weekly, and lay down their cross,

and rest while souls go to HELL, --- we have a heart problem.

More is spent on dog/cat food in the USA than given to missions, ---we have a heart problem.

TV Pastors, (how can a TV personality be your pastor), cry for ever bigger offerings, turn the gifts into freak shows,

claim millions a week won to the Lord, (in two years if their records are correct we would be a total Christian community),

teach that God wants you in a new car and airplane, and if you send them money you and your home will be debt free,

borrow an offering and send it in, they will even take major credit cards? --- sick hearts?

Do we not know the verse in 1 Tim. 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds,

and destitute of the truth, supposing that GAIN is godliness: from such turn away?

#2 We are quickly teaching from the pulpits a PALMS UP MENTALITY, give me or I will quit.

This is a serious heart problem?

Real love of God does not demand and give ultimatums, that is a symptom of heart problems.
