Scripture: Genesis 38:6,7
When it comes to navigating the end-times, what standard, when violated, moves God to terminate? In the process of identifying instances where man’s actions provoke God to terminate, there are some surprises. Genesis 38:6,7 outlines one, “Then Judah took a wife for Er his firstborn, and her name was Tamar. But Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the sight of the LORD, and the LORD killed him.” All we know from this passage is that Judah’s first born was wicked in God’s sight. Do we work with people whose behaviors are considered wicked? If so, we may be working with someone who God will terminate. Are we responsible to warn the wicked of their potential termination? What responsibility do we bear toward those whose behaviors can bring termination? Do we love them enough to warn them?
