What Do I Think? — Sunday Thought For The Day
People have asked me what I think regarding the continuing revelations of priests violating young boys? My answer is: “I think sin is sin and that God hates the sin of homosexuality and sexual perversion just as much as He hates the sin of lying, cheating, or murder.”
God is not a respecter of persons nor does He categorize sin. Sin is sin. Nowhere in scripture does it say that God has a descending order of sin; i.e., one sin is not worse than another. That includes the “unpardonable sin,” i.e., blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 12:31 KJV) The consequences of that specific sin are the worst but it is still sin.
I tell people who ask me about these recent revelations that the making known of this sin is not my greatest concern. My greatest concern is for the people of any church that claims the exclusive authority of God rests with them. My concern is for the people who have been led astray by false teaching and that is not limited to a particular denomination but is the condemnation of all churches, priests, or pastors who lead people into false belief with false teachings.
A brother in Christ shared with me that a sign on a church marque in the town in which he lives read: “We believe in the bible, but not literally.” The difference between the mainline church that displayed that message is no different than any church that makes its own rules as it goes along in order to accommodate it’s furtherance.
What do I think about priests violating young boys? I think sin is sin and it must be eradicated from top down, because as the saying goes: “A fish rots from the head down.”
READ: James 1:13-15 (KJV)
13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
