Blame and Mercy.

Within the church, we are often drawn to look at the sins of our brothers and sisters instead of examining yourself. We do this very well by disguising gossip with prayer. For instance, “have you heard about Joe cheating on his wife? We should pray for him.” Well Hosea 4:4 says “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame! Look, you priests, my complaint is with you.” I am not a priest but God’s complaint is with me when I embrace my sinful nature. I am coming clean and saying that there are times when I enjoy the wrong decisions. Whether it is gossip, cursing, living in this world, drinking too much, or lusting; there are times when I find enjoyment and comfort in it. That is not okay. When I ask for prayer do not say “That’s okay, we have all been there.” No, kid me in the butt and tell me to STOP SINNING.

I’m out.
