The world is in a bad place because of sin. Sin is what we have condoned in a lot of ways. We gave it a slap on the wrist, but we didn’t really change. There are plenty of people caught up in sin. We all sin. And there are a lot of people who are simply OK with it.
People don’t like to call sin what it is. It’s sin. They don’t like to recognize it as wronging God. They don’t like to admit that it’s not right. They just like to not think about it. That’s all.
I’ve been that person. Sometimes I do wrong things and I mope a little bit, and then I lay in bed miserable about it. Somehow, I think that if I lay in bed all day afterwards that maybe I won’t think about it so much. At least I feel bad right? And if I’m sleep, I don’t have time to feel so bad, do I?
But, even as wrong and twisted as that is, there is something even crazier out there. There are people who are OK with certain sins for no other reason than the fact that they commit them. Crazy, huh?
We are facing sad times. People want to pick and choose the parts of the Bible they like to live by. Then everything else is applicable to everyone else, but them. For some reason, they can “get away” with it because they don’t believe that part. That’s not right.
Sin is sin. Homosexuality is a sin. Sex outside of marriage is a sin. Drunkenness is a sin. And there are many more sins. No matter who’s doing it, it’s still wrong. Sin is sin no matter how good a person is and no matter how much you love them.
Don’t condone what’s wrong just because you do it too. And don’t condone wrong just because you love someone. Speak the truth in love and call it like it is. Sin.
