Good or Bad?

cholesterolThose who watch their cholesterol levels know that not all cholesterol is the same. There are different kinds of cholesterol. To put it in layman’s terms, there is “good cholesterol” and “bad cholesterol”. The bad cholesterol clogs arteries and leads to heart attacks. However, the good cholesterol somehow helps to prevent coronary disease. So, not all cholesterol is the same.

In the same way, the Bible says that not all pleasure is the same. There is good pleasure and bad pleasure. Good pleasure is healthful, self-controlled, and obedient to God’s commands. Bad pleasure is self-indulgent, addictive, and disobedient to God’s commands.

“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.”—Romans 12:9.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father…”—James 1:17.
