The attacks on Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson are just a sad tip of the iceberg our culture has wrecked upon.
The Word of God said (a long time before any of us formed our opinions) that sin was sin and that although God loves sinners…He hates sin! The Holy Bible lists on several occasions certain specific sins that God especially identifies as those He despises the most. It’s not always sexual or immoral sins that make it to God’s list of those sins He hates. God hates pride, God hates lying, God hates the murder of the innocent, God hates wicked fantasies, God hates how quickly sin is embraced, God hates the dishonest gossip of liars, and God hates it when discord disrupts the harmony of unity.(Prov. 6:16-19)
Before some of you gobble up this list and wave it in the face of those who stand with God against sin, you better think twice! God does NOT expect for me or anybody else to sit back and pretend that you are not in sin. God does NOT expect for me to sit back silently while immoral and ungodly people flaunt their sinful lifestyles in the face of God, His Church, and the Community where they live. God doesn’t think it’s cute that you can live in open immorality and post quips and quotes of God’s love and Christmas on your social media sites. God’s Word calls you a double minded and unstable man.
The WORST part is that it’s not just mainstream media and other celebrities who will readily accept sin as normal and even desirable behavior. Many of you who attend Fundamental Baptist Churches have lowered your standards and have given Satan a place where he can comfortably flee when he is resisted by those who will point out sin as they see it infiltrate their church, family, or community. I am amazed at the so called “Christians” who continue to “Follow”, “Friend”, or “Like” these immoral men of reprobate minds. Somehow you leave the impression that maybe “birds of a feather DO flock together”.
Somehow, many “Christians” have swallowed the idea of our wicked culture, that if you say anything about or against sin…then you are the one who is doing the wrong! How ridiculous of an idea that would simply silence the pulpits and make mute the pews, while sinful men continue their lascivious behavior. I refuse to be silent when the souls of men, women, boys, and girls are lost and continue to be confused by the immoral and ungodly lifestyles of those who use the Cause of Christ for their own gain or convenience!
Keep it in perspective. Love the sinner…hate the sin! Pass them through the Cross of Calvary, and the sin will be washed away and the sinner saved for all of eternity!
