As A Christian Are We Growing Insensitive to Sin?

Most believers understand that sin is wrong. They know how important forgiveness is and the price Christ paid to give it. They also know the importance of repentance and dying to the old sin nature. However, living in a sin filled world where every segment of society is practicing their sin in the open daily from the highest to the lowest among us we are compelled to ask the question, “As a Christian are we growing insensitive to sin?” It was not that long ago as believers we would be appalled to witness some of the sin we see in our world today. Was the sin there all along or were we just blind to it? Or was everything done in secret behind closed doors? Or have we as a world just gotten more-evil? Perhaps we can answer all these in the affirmative. Have we grown insensitive to sin to the point where we can just overlook it and not be too bothered by it? Insensitive to the point where we can gaze upon it, we can watch it, we can read about it and we can even share it with others. As we shall see this did not happen overnight. It took a very long time for people, especially believers, to feel comfortable enough to look at the sin and have no problem sharing it with others.

So, what does the Bible say about the sin all around us. “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy (I Peter 1:15-16). We are called to be holy, which means we must separate ourselves from all manner of sin. Before we can separate ourselves from sin we must first recognize it as sin. Oh, how we have fallen when we no longer recognize sin as sin. When did we as Christians stop recognizing pride and lying as sin? When did we as Christians stop recognizing that vulgarity, sexual immorality and adultery as sin? Have we grown that insensitive to sin that we no longer call it sin? Perhaps we should ask what’s causing the insensitivity. Could it be that in our eagerness to get away from one set of sins like homosexuality and abortion that we have run headlong into the acceptance of other sins, such as pride, lying, vulgarity, sexual immorality, and adultery? Can we safely say that one set of sins are better than another? We must agree that all sin is sin, although our Father in heaven tends to take a dimmer view of lying and pride. Perhaps because Satan is known as the father of lies and his pride led him to rebel against a most Holy God.

Perhaps another reason for becoming insensitive to these sins in question is that somehow the old sin nature can accept these better than the unpopular sins of the religious community such as: abortion, homosexuality, the acceptance of other world religions and cruelty to children or animals. Whatever the reason for our insensitivity we must open our eyes and understand that all sin is sin. It should make little difference to the believers if it’s someone of low position or a higher position, if the sin is present we must call it out. If it’s lying, then they must no longer lie and repent of all previous lies by confessing them to God and to one another. (See James 5:16) If it’s pride, then they must stop all their boasting and bragging about their selves and in humility consider others better themselves. In the same way all vulgarity, sexual immorality and adultery must stop with repentance, making a confession to God and to one another of their previous sins. For those in the highest level of authority should they not repent and confess these sins publicly to receive not only the forgiveness from God, but from the people. If not, then how can God fearing Christians continue to support such a person or persons. Have we become that insensitive to sin that we now turn a blind eye to it?

Perhaps another reason for becoming insensitive to sin is that one becomes comfortable with it. It is always easier to do it the second time. Either committing the sin or just participating in it. To listen to the boasting over and over again or the lying one begins to accept it as the new normal. The same is true in listening to vulgarity or being around a hot-tempered person. After awhile it becomes easier to accept. Of course, the same is true in committing the sin. Every time one commits a sin it becomes easier. In the same way, every time one participates in a sin, such as, watching it on TV or on Social Media, it becomes easier. Step by step one becomes more insensitive to the sin. It no longer shocks. It no longer feels repulsive. One no longer feels the conviction of the Holy Spirit thus grieving Him (See Ephesians 4:30). In time after seeing the sin time and again one become insensitive to the sin. Once that happens then it becomes easier to move from being just a participant in watching the sin committed to committing the sin ourselves. As one loses their insensitivity to the sin it becomes an acceptable habit. Indeed, sin is a very slippery slope.

Now, let’s test ourselves and see just how insensitive we have become to sin. Are you shocked, and feel repulsive when you see someone on Social Media beat a defenseless dog, or see a half-naked woman leading the music service in church, or see young boys beating up another boy in the school yard? If you say no, then you have grown insensitive to sin. How do you feel when someone post on Social Media a pastor touching the genitals of a woman, or someone is using vulgar language to express their point, or someone is mistreating their child in the market? If you say that you feel nothing, then you have grown insensitive to sin. How do you feel when you see a man half-nude dressed as a woman? If you feel nothing, then you have grown insensitive to sin. To be holy we don’t comment on those post but turn away immediately. As holy children we must not even gaze upon the sin. How do you feel when countless women say that they had an adulterous affair with the President of the United States of America? Truly now, can they all be lying? Yes, this all supposedly happened before he became President but the lying is happening now. The pride and boasting is happening now as President. As believers have we grown that insensitive to sin or are we simply ignoring it because we like his policies. Because we like how he is standing in the gap for the Christian community. This list could go on, but you get the point. Let’s make sure as believers who have been called to be holy that we have not lost our sensitivity to sin.

Trump May be the Catalyst to Usher in the Antichrist

So, why do we write, “Trump may be the catalyst to usher in the Antichrist?” Admittedly he is the first administration that has forced so many things to go in the opposite direction. Step by step with the power of his pen he has reversed many things from the previous administration while he appears to embrace the Christian community. Only the power and persuasion of the Antichrist could the pendulum be forced to go back in the opposite direction during the next administration. The lure for globalization has been too great, fantasized by Hollywood for many years. The global desire to address the effects of global warming has been too high, taught and accepted by most. The longing for tolerance of all other belief systems with open borders to all has had a profound effect upon the liberal mindset. The acceptance of all lifestyles including homosexuality and transgender has captured the hearts of most. So, along comes Donald Trump who stands against it all causing the pendulum to swing all the way in the opposite direction. Continue reading Trump May be the Catalyst to Usher in the Antichrist

Revealing the Man of Lawlessness

All through history we have seen evil, sin, and lawlessness. Yet, in these last days lawlessness will increase to such a degree that the man of lawlessness will be accepted and worshiped by every nation. The old restraint spoken of in the Bible will be removed so that the man of lawlessness can be revealed. (See II Thessalonians 2:5-6) Although the interpretation of who is doing the restraining has been hotly debated for years, there is a consensus among most scholars that the legal system of the Roman Empire held gross lawlessness in check, at least the outward forms. Even the Apostle Paul saw the Roman Empire as being established by God to punish the evil doer and reward the good.(See Romans 13:1) In every world empire since the fall of the Roman Empire outward acts of lawlessness have been punished to keep man from destroying himself.  In later centuries when evil men twisted God’s law or rejected it altogether they were led to enslave men of color, commit mass executions, or seek annihilation of an entire race. Yet, in every case the world’s consciousness has led man to right these wrongs by adhering to their legal system and bringing forth a swift and powerful judgment on the evil.

Final Warning

This is your final warning, repent now or experience the full extent of God’s wrath that will be poured out on our country. I wrote these words back in 2006 and every day since, these words become more prophetic for a country that has all but turned its back on the one true God.

Thus saith the Lord, “Legalizing abortion, homosexuality, and same sex marriage has barely scratched the surface of your immorality. You are a country that has kneeled at the altar of psychology seeking answers to your multitude of problems. You are staggering around like a drunk under the heavy weight of psychotropic drug addiction. I am no longer welcome in your schools as you seek to introduce the practices and traditions of other world religions among your children. Your leaders no longer respect me as the God over all of mankind, but now seek an audience with foreign gods through appeasement and empty treaties. Every vile and unclean bird has been allowed to enter your borders to set up human trafficking, magical arts, sorcery, and every manner of lewdness. What can be said about your greed and lust for power that has abandoned all restraints of morality and have inflicted pain upon my people will be written in your epitaph.” Continue reading Final Warning
