Nicely done pastor. I so agree. Will we trust science or will we trust in Christ? Many are blinded by science and the god of this world. May God open their eyes and open their ears so that they see and hear the truth found only in Jesus Christ.

Well said Pastor Spalding! Unless we humans realize that we have a problem(sin) with a Holy God, there is no need for a Savior from the death that results from our sin(Rom 3:23, 6:23). You outlined that beautifully in just a few sentences. Would that the Church preached such a message.

Last Sunday the associate pastor of a church I attended while traveling, tried to explain that Peter’s vision on Simon the tanner’s roof showed us that we are not to call sin impure because God commands us to eat(accept/embrace) other’s lifestyles. God Bless you and God help us.

Hello DocReits, I saw this comment come in and just have to ask what does it mean when you said //that Peter’s vision on Simon the tanner’s roof showed us that we are not to call sin impure because God commands us to eat(accept/embrace) other’s lifestyles.// ?

Hi Pamela,

You ask,

“what does it mean when you said //that Peter’s vision on Simon the tanner’s roof showed us that we are not to call sin impure because God commands us to eat(accept/embrace) other’s lifestyles.// ?

I did not say that Pam…the associate pastor said that at the church I attended in Seattle. He was using Peter’s vision(which was to illustrate that the Good News of salvation was available to the Gentiles”) as a proof text that we(the Church) are to accept the gay lifestyle. IOW, calling sin acceptable(clean) in God’s sight.

I thought I was clear but if you did not understand my statement then I know others did not as well. I was pleased with and responding to the guest pastor/author’s point:

“So you see, the problem mankind faces is that God is good and we are bad. Most people in the world, including those secular scientists who hold to evolution, refuse to admit to Holy God that they are sinners. That they have a sin problem … a sin debt! As a result of their denial, they set out to establish some other explanation for our existence.”

My point is that the Church has the very same problem!! Many(most?) Christian churches rationalize away sin to become more “accepting and acceptable” to our culture and as a result miss out on not only God’s Blessing but perhaps our own salvation. Forsaking sin is at the heart of the Gospel. God saved us in order that we might have fellowship with Him and Glorify His Holy Name forever.

The question I raise, “What place has light with darkness?”(2Cor 6:14). Do we(I) sin and will we(I) sin…Yes! But we forsake it, ask forgiveness and go on. This associate pastor, whose church I attended said that we embrace sin by welcoming and attending and participating in events such as the “Gay Christian Convention” he attended. Sad, but a very common occurrence in the watered down Church in America.

Please let me know if that rambling made sense…;-)

Hi DocReits
You have clarified it for me. That pastor apparently forgot to read that 2 Corinthians Chapter 6 (and some other parts of the Bible too) because attending such events are really contrary to what we are called to do “…come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,” (a little later in that 2 Cor 6 chapter). I liken this to calling yourself a Christian and choosing to work as a doctor who performs abortion. Or choosing to sit around with the “old buddies” and drink a case of beer to the point of drunkenness. Or spending the night with a prostitute. I could go on … in other words, it is one thing to accept the person who is steeped in such sin and love them anyhow, it is quite another to to condone the sin by participating in the act. Thanks Doc, I do believe we have digressed from the original post.
