We have become a country of enablers. Under the guise of love and tolerance, we have enabled people to live in sin and not feel guilty or ashamed of their actions. As a matter of fact, guilt and shame have become dirty words themselves. No one can be held accountable for their actions because they are either ‘sick with a disease’, ‘born that way’ or ‘free to live their lives as they see fit’. They can't help it, so how can we blame them? We must accept them as they are and love them and their ways. I am afraid to think of what is coming down the pike next, but I’m sure we’ll find a way to accept it no matter how perverted or evil it is.
What God calls sin is sin. There’s no way around it, over it or under it righteously. We may not hold ourselves or others responsible, but God can and will. We may candy-coat the truth, spare people’s feelings and enable (even reward) bad behavior, but God will not. He will punish it. It will feel the full weight of His wrath. There will be no excuses accepted, no humanistic reasoning debated and no tear-filled cries for mercy granted on the judgment day. Mercy is only available in the here-and-now. Make things right before you die or suffer the consequences before a Holy God.
I feel badly for the millions of people who have fallen into deadly sin because society has put their stamp of approval on it. People use to turn from sinful living when their conscious’s bothered them. But now society has declared that not only can we live any old way we want, but we must tolerate, respect and even admire others who live perverted lifestyles. And I’m not only talking about homosexuals. Alcoholics have a disease, thieves have a disease, sex addicts have a disease, child molesters have a disease, adulterers have a disease, and on and on. No one is responsible for their evil deeds. And how dare you Christians quote from some ancient fairy-tale book to tell us different. There is no absolute truth. There is no moral standard. There is no God.
The Bible says there was a time when every man did what was right in his own eyes. It says there was a time when the Earth was so full of sin that God destroyed it with a flood. It says that there was a time when man’s thoughts were only evil continuously. Look around and see history repeating itself. The final cleansing will be with fire, not water; and sooner than we think.
