In Isaiah 7:13, Ahaz asked this question of his people, “Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also?” Can any sin be regarded as small, or can any transgression be looked upon as a light thing? Is sin something we might subject to censorship that one might be declared big and another little? Are some sins possible and others punishable? Are some sins to be condemned and others to be condoned? Should we wink at one and weep over another?
Maybe this is what is wrong with our society. If so, we need to re-evaluate this thing, for we have the wrong idea altogether. God does not classify sin, but lets us know that every sin is horrible, and not a single one is honorable. Any sin is grievous before the Lord, and not a single one is granted by the Lord. Each one is serious, and not a single one is sanctioned.
Sin is sin in God’s sight, whether it be a failure on our part to do that which is right (omission – James 4:17) or whether it be a doing of that which is not right (commission – I John 5:17). There are no small sins, for there is no small God to sin against. The Lord tells us that every transgression and disobedience will receive a just recompense of reward (Heb. 2:2). Did you notice that the Lord said, “Every transgression and disobedience?” This means that the Lord will make no allowance for sin!
Is homosexuality a small thing? This degrading and despicable sin is described in the scriptures in which depravity is found in its greatest depths (Rom. 1:21-27). The punishment of the homosexuals of Sodom and Gomorrah was a complete annihilation. Homosexuality was a sin in the days of Abraham and Lot; it was a sin in the days of Moses; it is sin today!
Is pedophilia a small thing? The radical left is desperately trying to standardize the most deviant of behaviors and bring society’s standards into conformity with pedophilia! This is a clear attempt to force acceptance of deviant behavior upon our society. There is mounting evidence of organized pedophilia and child-trafficking networks throughout the world.
There is no direct mention of pedophilia in the Bible, but this behavior is discussed in Galatians 5:19. Paul uses the Greek word, porneia, to describe all types of immoral sexual behavior that includes pedophilia. Those who commit this act will not inherit the kingdom of Heaven (Gal. 5:21).
Is being a moocher and being lazy a small thing? Socialists promise all kinds of free stuff, but they never discuss the true costs. The Apostle Paul said, “IF any will not work, neither let him eat” (II Thess. 3:10). Paul had a very strong work ethic (capitalism). He was a tent maker. Paul made it very clear that the ones who would not work were not to eat at the expense of others who did work.
Is calling evil good and good evil a small thing? The lying, corrupt mainstream media have become the greatest threat to our country and freedom. They are owned by the global elites who script what is said, word for word, and they have been reporting lies, half-truths and complete falsehoods with the clear intention of deceiving the American public!
Can we regard these matters lightly? It is time to stand up for the truth -- enough is enough – and take our country back!
