Someone posted an article on fb that reports a church deciding to accept pride, gossip, sorcery, covetousness, theft, and sexual immorality alongside their acceptance of homosexuality over a decade ago. The article was from the Babylon Bee. Now I know the Babylon Bee is satire, not real news. But honestly, can’t you see a day when some churches will accept most “modern” lifestyles? We are already beginning to have people claim that their involvement in beastiality is merely an alternative lifestyle and they want the right to marry their pet. The same is happening with pedophilia.
I am convinced most churches do not see many sins for what they are – traps, burdens and heavy weights that ensnare us. All sin trips up our walk with the Lord. We are doing no one a favor by just accepting such in peoples lives. We want to truly love them — share that these are not the way to happiness and God has the answer. We must also share our own struggles and encourage them with stories of deliverance.
