VENTING MODE ON:
I don’t know why I am so surprised that Christians are so morally clueless. Perhaps it is because no two ministers of the Gospel can agree on what is sinful and what is not. My last post was a case in point. Gambling: is it a sin? Or is it not? No agreement. One pastor says, “It is inherently covetous.” Another will say, “It’s adiaphora,” or “Well, as long as you are just doing it for entertainment.” The same could be said for many other issues, both moral and doctrinal, in the church. There are always two sides to everything, two opposing viewpoints that are both potentially right.
And we wonder why our people are so morally confused. We wonder and lament that Christians don’t seem to know what is sinful and what is not. Is it maybe because, hmmm, perhaps WE PASTORS DON’T EVEN KNOW ANYMORE????
Is it just because some are afraid to call anything a sin? Is it because we just want to give people an escape route that is of the Law and not of the Gospel? I don’t know. It is mind-boggling to me.
