So many judge others, believing their sin is not as bad as others, categorizing sins but in the Lords eyes sin is sin. When someone is turned away from the places that are suppose to be serving the Lord because of what the person looks like or because of something the person once did, they are putting Jesus on trail, if He can wash away peoples sins…. that’s a place I never want to put myself in…..putting Jesus on trial.
Romans 3:23-26 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and are justified by His grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by His blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins. It was to show His righteousness at the present time, so that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
Isaiah 43:25 “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions, for my own sake, and remembers your sins no more.”
Think about this…. Isn’t it true when someone doesn’t accept that others are worthy of God forgiveness, that they are saying what they think is above what the Lord thinks?
Romans 14:13 Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather determine this—not to put an obstacle or a stumbling block in a brother’s way.
