Shame on those who claim to be in the Body of Christ but ‘cherry-pick’ the sins they feel are important.
Is homosexuality a sin? YES!
Is abortion a sin? YES!
Are these the only two sins that God prioritizes. NO!
Look at what God said through the prophet Isaiah…
Isaiah 10 (NKJV)
“Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees,
Who write misfortune,
Which they have prescribed
2 To rob the needy of justice,
And to take what is right from the poor of My people,
That widows may be their prey,
And that they may rob the fatherless.
3 What will you do in the day of punishment,
And in the desolation which will come from afar?
To whom will you flee for help?
And where will you leave your glory?
4 Without Me they shall bow down among the prisoners,
And they shall fall [a]among the slain.”
For all this His anger is not turned away,
But His hand is stretched out still.
For those of you who require New Testament support, notice what Yeshua told the Pharisees and religious leaders. He rebuked them sharply for their hypocrisy…
Matthew 23:23 (NKJV)
23 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have neglected the WEIGHTIER matters of the law: JUSTICE and MERCY and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone.
The spirit of the Pharisees is alive and well in many of those who claim to be Christians who act as though Jesus dies and gave them ONE NARROW NARRATIVE.
If you are a Christian, and have never spoken out against social injustice…
If you are a Pastor and have never preached against social and racial inequality and inequity…
If you don’t have compassion for the poor in the land…
Not only are you are not being true to the entire message of Yeshua the Messiah, Jesus Christ, but the spirit of the Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes and High Priests during the Lords earthly ministry still lives in you today.
You prove on which side of history you would have stood by your heart and attitude today…HOW YOU PROVE WHICH SIDE YOU WOULD HAVE CHOSEN IF YOU LIVED IN BIBLE DAYS BY YOUR ATTITUDE TODAY…
I pray that God softens your heart through peace to submit to His love, His will and His entire word.
