The lifestyles of the rich and the famous leads to poverty

In our day unlike any other time in history, lifestyle is the rave, the proverbial lifestyles of the rich and the famous, which is the dream lifestyle of sinners. This lifestyle is clearly outlined in the Bible and is clearly compared with the lifestyle of the saved. This lifestyle is financially draining and can be summarized as a lifestyle filled with ungodliness and loss of self-control. Here Paul describes, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are [these]; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told [you] in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God”. Galatians5:19-21 As you read this passage with the various activities of this lifestyle you can see the loss of wealth resulting, because of the need to medically treat various STDs, lawyer fees, prison terms, rehab, reconstruction of nations after wars, sex offender data base, mental illness, broken homes, etc. Another example of this financially draining lifestyle and of its disruptive nature is found in 2 Timothy, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away”.2 Timothy3:1-5 It is a wise choice to be a Christian.
