What is the consequence of minimizing the gravity of sin? That’s the question we sought to answer with this week’s message at Living Hope. The truth is, “sin” is sidelined by the culture outside the church, because it presumes a normative moral standard. Our culture is instead more comfortable with Postmodernity’s individualism and moral relativity. Even inside the church, we want to make our own rules. Even in churches where SIN is preached without pulling punches, it sometimes seems to hardly make a difference in the lives of those in the pews. God forgives, right? Is grace so commonplace, so cheap, that it has dulled us to the effects of sin?
SHAME. FEAR. BLAME. PAIN. DEATH.
If we minimize the gravity of sin, we won’t be reliant upon God for the grace of sanctification and transformation, and we will not be holy.
