Why do some Christians say “all sins are equally bad” and “everyone is equally guilty”? | WINTERY KNIGHT

Hands of many colors holding up a cross.

  Standing up for Truth and Loving our EnemiesPosted on May 13, 2021, by Mel WildEvangelist

     Reinhard Bonnke once said, “The devil is just a mouse with a microphone.” Jesus stripped him of his power on the cross. Now, the only authority he has is what we give him through the lies we believe. The same is true for tyranny. Oppressive regimes only have power when the people allow them to have it. And we allow it through ignorance and fear. But we also know what was meant for evil can be for our good (Gen.50:20), and that God works all things together for our good (Rom.8:28). So, in that hopeful light, I will share an op-ed piece from the Epoch Times that exposes what’s bringing us to the brink of tyranny, and then add my own insights on how we should respond. This article is titled, “The American Oligarchy is being Exposed” by Brian Cates. I don’t think you have to be a subscriber to read it for yourself, but I will put some of the main points here, just in case. Here’s how the article begins:“One of the biggest impacts Trump has had on the country both as president and as a private citizen has been awakening millions of Americans to the very real danger of a media and political elite class that has been subverting Constitutional and legal processes in the states to increase their own power and control.”*

Not all idols are made of bronze or gold.

I used to teach a Sunday School class to kids, and one day I was talking to them about the importance of reading the Bible. Every single one of them had a reason why they were too busy to read the Bible. Since they were kids I accepted some of the reasons because after all, honoring your parents is also honoring to God, however some of the things that made them “too busy” to read their Bible were just plain silly. If watching Wheel of Fortune means that you are too busy to listen to God’s word, Wheel of Fortune has become an idol! I am not saying don’t have fun, I am saying that if you don’t have time to read God’s word, you may have an idol or two in your life. It’s time to look at your schedule and clean out a few idols.
For those of you who may be genuinely too busy, because you are doing something that can not wait like helping a special needs person, may I suggest obtaining an audio Bible? People who lead stressful busy lives need God too,

Is your God, the God of the Bible?

There are many different “gods’ that get preached about, some are trinitarian, some are modelist, some are black, some are white, some are Middle Eastern, some are only anger, some are only love, some have room for both justice and grace…

Only one is THE GOD that can save you. He has grace for people who have tried, and honestly don’t understand the differences, but we must all search for a more complete vision of who he really is. Because worshiping a god who isn’t him is idolatry.
