God had to Die

I was once confronted by one who rejected Christ.  He stated, “God would never come to earth, become a man, and die on a cross for us.  He is God.  He would never do such a thing.” 

Unfortunately, this man’s knowledge of God is incomplete and barring a change of heart, he will spend all of eternity existing in dying separated from God(life).

Standing Right in this Present Day

Departing from sin, being appalled by sin, being vocally against sin, with love preaching repentance and forgiveness are the very nature of the being of a Christ follower.  To embrace, ignore or to remain silent about sin is to be accomplice with sin and thereby an enemy of HIM, who alone is the righteous Judge.

2Tim. 2:19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ DEPART from iniquity.

He will set His mark!  The precident has been stated.

SCOTUS' Denial of God

Romans 1 is clear and incredibly applicable today. Beware to those who fly a "Proud" colorful banner claiming that abhorrent sin is "equal" to Holy Matrimony. Their position is grounded in a denial of God as creator God. They are not Christ followers. They are deceivers of themselves and those who are simple. They are proud of their sin.

Oh, those who are simply “happy about the change”, but are not "practitioners" you are not in the clear. Revelations chapter 3 calls you lukewarm. The last verse of Romans 1 is the clincher, “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

Equality, God Style

God practices "equality", "For all have sinned..." (Rom. 3.23)

He commands all to repent and believe. (Ac 17:30)

He then commands believers to, " speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority!"

Titus 2:11 For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

The Forgiven and the Forgiver are made One in the Process

I John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

I thank God that this promise is not dependent upon the findings of the “Court of Public Opinion.”

Neither is this promise:

Romans 8:1  There is therefore NOW NO CONDEMNATION to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

The only conditions are confession/repentance of sin and faith in Christ as the righteous Savior.  It is then, a done deal.
