Sin is subjective! Sin is what one thinks it to be!

Sin is objective! The judgment of sin’s in another is intolerant and prejudiced,

Subjective! Objective! Is it?

God did not send His Son to die a cruel, horrible, humiliating death on the cross for a short-coming. For what the world defines as sin. For what the world excuses. God sent His only begotten Son to die for you and for me for our rebellion, our hate filled hearts, our transgressions, our bent toward unforgiveness, and our self centeredness.

Daily I strive, and daily I fail, yet God in His infinite love toward you, toward me showed us a love I cannot begin to understand and know I could never deserve by sending Jesus. Our Saviour, Jesus our LORD, came loving and forgiving, showing mercy, being gracious, kind and gentle. Daily He walked among the fallen, showing compassion, always mindful of the reason for which He came, always with an eye toward the cross.

Sin is neither subjective nor objective. Sin is as scripture defines it to be; turning our back on God, refusing to do what He has called us to do, what He has taught us in His Word, what we know to do. Sin is disobedience to our Creator God. For this Jesus came, and for this He died.

And now Praise His Holy Name, though our sins be a scarlet [and mine surely are] they will be as white as snow - because of Jesus our Sacrificial Lamb, slain in my place, slain in yours.

"How precious is Your loving-kindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light. Oh, continue Your loving-kindness to those who know You, And Your righteousness to the upright in heart." Psalm 36:7-10

  1. Amen and Amen Ali; it's astonishing to see sin made light of, and that's in the church! Many have forgotten God is thrice holy, and He despises sin. Those who are merely professing Christ and yet living in willful rebellious sin prove they've never been born again by God - those who truly belong to Him will indeed strive to mortify sin daily. May we never, ever make light of sin - ours or others.

    This piece written by A.W. Pink speaks of the scriptures and sin - http://www.sermonindex.net/modules/articles/index.php?view=article&aid=25964

  2. Thanks Lyn. I long to be more like Jesus, and grieve that I am not. Yet my sins show me just how very much I need Him.

  3. Amen Ali - we desperately need His grace and mercy each minute of each day He gives us.
