God is Not a God of Excuses
In our time there are many excuses given as to the reasons why no one should mention the word “Sin.” These excuses given claim that everybody sins, therefore people should be allowed to live whatever life they see fit because it is their life. What’s more, who are we to confront others or tell them how they should live? Some of these people for the defense of their stand take the Scriptures out of context, like Romans 14:13, and Romans 3:10, and John 4. Conveniently, they skip Romans 6:1-23. These incessant debates are all over among the circle of those who claim to have faith in Christ Jesus. But is this true I ask? Various Scriptures show otherwise such as Matthew 18:15-17, Galatians 5:13, 1Thessalonian 4 and Titus 2:11-end. My point is that God still judges sin and holds church leaders accountable for correct teaching on the subject.
To my brothers and sisters around the world, colleagues in faith, and all those who are still searching read and here this; Cain killed his brother, Abel in Genesis 4 but judgment did not end there. God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19:12-29 because of sin. Saffira and Ananias were judged and struck dead by God for the deceitful sin of lying in Acts 5:1-11.
Why would God do this? Because God was setting boundaries of law and order just as in any state in the United States or any other nation on earth have a police force to maintain law and order. These police or law enforcement officers are trained to recognize and respond to acts of rape, murder, pedophilias, drunkenness, or indecent exposures, etc, etc, and are commissioned to keep the public safe. In the same way, ordained church leaders are commissioned to train and teach on spiritual laws that can keep our spiritual life safe from judgment if we follow them. In an effort to maintain law and order in society preventive measures through written rules and laws are set, offenders are punished, and societal moral sanctity preserved.
The Bible teaches that the wages of sin is death in Romans 6:23. The Bible is the moral law for believers and in it is the code of ethics for how they should live. .
Above all, we know that God who is Love is not only of Love, He is God of Justice, Righteousness, Vengeance, Wrath, Forgiveness, Obedience, Holiness, and yes, a God of Truth, and God who hates sin. To love God and not steadfastly walk righteously (not perfect) towards Him in all these areas is living a lie. We cannot always use the excuse of “GOD is LOVE.” God has never made Excuse for sin. We all have the ability to live right if we choose without excuses.
