Rotten Fruit

When a banana is green and left hanging it is not edible; in most cases it is extremely difficult to peel. Only after an ample amount of time basking in sunshine and through maturity does the banana become good for consumption. The bible says that a bad tree cannot produce good fruit. So goes it with a human being when used by God for development into his kingdom. If we rot or spoil on his vine due to our resistance and disobedience (such as the children of Israel did being kept in the wilderness for forty years because of their hardheartedness) just like a rotten banana incarcerated within its own dead skin, our flesh and soul will also be consumed as waste in the lake of fire. However, there are millions of other mature bananas that will ripen for the

harvest and serve the purpose of feeding the flock.

Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to the birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.

Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves.

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature.

And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.

Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Romans 1:21-32
