I was once asked by a friend if I will drink a glass of 100% pure distilled water. Without bothering to ask the logic behind her question I quickly answered ‘yes’. Then she rephrased her question and asked me again if I will then drink a glass of 99.9%
pure distilled water with .01% poison. Without even thinking I promptly said NO (with surprised and annoyed expression). I don’t think I got her point and I threw her my deadly glare (If only looks could kill). Even the most stupid person in the world knows the answer, who would dare to drink that water and die instantly. No matter how pure the water, it’s still contaminated.
Then she explained to me the sense behind that silly question. And truth be told that was the best lesson I have learned about compromise. Sometimes it’s okay to make ‘very little’ compromise because we always reason out that God will understand and it’s not too obvious for others to see. We let ourselves be 99% pure and 1% impure. But the truth will remain, you’re still contaminated. I am not suggesting that a Christian will not sin. The Bible clearly says, “If we say we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). But there is a big difference between the person who sins, is sorry for it, and doesn’t want to keep doing it, and the person who continually, willfully, habitually sins over and over again and then says, “It is okay. God will forgive me.”
Wrong is wrong. Sin is sin. Immoral is immoral. We don’t need to sugarcoat it to look beautiful. This time, I’ll make a stand. I’d rather offend the world than offend God. It’s been quite a while now that we’re offending God, it’s now time let the world get offended.
In court, if you killed someone you can’t reason out that you only killed once and you did thousands of good deeds to be acquitted. Doing good things doesn’t remove the fact that you killed someone. In the same way, compromising the standards of God is also the same as turning your back to Him. You can’t say you follow God’s command, yet compromise with a single sin. That’s the truth in the Bible I know. And the purpose of TRUTH in the Bible is not to offend but to save and love.
For once I will say this since the issue has already gone viral and this is the last time I will comment on the issue. I support Manny Pacquaio, regardless of what you say I’m entitled to my opinion. Once and for all, I
we dont condemned the LGBT community, we condemned the act. What I we hate is the sin and not the sinner. It’s been quite a while now that we’re offending God, it’s now time let the world get offended.
