I’m Guilty How About You?

(Rom 3:23)  for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God,

In these days of social media news travels quick you can read about current events moments after they happen. Often times online along with the story there are comment sections for people to share their comments on any given news story. More often than not those comments those comments are nasty and extremely judgmental. As Christians we should never allow ourselves to be in agreement with those who post negative comments.

Right now, the headlines are dealing with Bill Cosby, Deshaun Watson, R. Kelly all stories of unacceptable sexual behavior. There is the Discovery+ series dealing with the issues of the Hillsong ministries some of those issues are sexual in nature. Then there are political issues right against left it is amazing how quickly people are degraded and called unmentionable names online because of their political beliefs. You’ll read in the comments section of stories dealing with people who clearly have sexual issues those commenting on the story are so quick to call them “sum bags’’

In our scripture text the Bible tells us that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Scripture also informs us (Jas 2:10)  For whoever shall keep the whole Law and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. (Jas 2:11)  For He who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” But if you do not commit adultery, yet if you murder, you have become a transgressor of the Law. Sin is sin and we all have been and, in many cases, still are guilty of some if not multiple transgressions.

As those who are supposed to be followers of Christ when we watch the news or read something online we should never chime in with others and condemn we don’t condone but we don’t condemn. As evil as Adolf Hitler was if he had repented of his evil he would have been saved. Let me repeat that as evil as Adolf Hitler was if he had repented of his evil he would have been saved. (Mar 3:28)  Truly I say to you, All sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men, and blasphemies with which they shall blaspheme. (Mar 3:29)  But he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never shall have forgiveness, but is liable to eternal condemnation. Jesus Yeshua said that “ All sins shall be forgiven to the sons of men” So if someone has repented of their sins and evil deeds how can we condemn what God has forgiven?

There is so much going on in the world today, as believers and followers of Christ we need to be in constant prayer for our leaders and our nation. Whenever we hear, see, or read of someone who has fallen be it sexual or criminal no matter what the case or situation maybe. We should pray for all parties involved pray for the victim and pray for the perpetrator. When it comes to politics whether you are on the left or the right always remember that Jesus Yeshua died for that same individual who has different political opinions than yours.

Before I could post this I was going to mention Roe vs Wade being possibly over turned as I was about to post Roe vs Wad has been over turned. You can’t talk about abortion if you don’t deal with fornication. . Eliminate fornication and there is no need for abortion. In 2019, unmarried women accounted for 86% of all abortions (CDC). In 2011 it was noted that as many as 80 percent of unmarried evangelical young adults have had sex, according to an analysis of a study on sexual activity as noted in an issue of Relevant, a Christian magazine. There should be just as much fervor against fornication as there is against abortion. However, you can’t have that type of fervor if you know your children are sexually active or you yourself maybe in a sexual relationship outside of marriage.

(2Ch 7:14)  if My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. In times of distress and trouble this scripture is often quoted however what often times is lacking is humility. The Apostle Paul said (Rom 7:24)  O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? None of us are so good or so perfect that we don’t daily need God’s Grace and Mercy. So, the next time you hear or read of someone who has fallen no matter what the case or situation may be. First of all Thank God for keeping you and yours then pray for all parties concerned. Be Encouraged and Blessed Minister Mike.
