Sin without Consequence is not Forgiveness

January 31st, 2017 by G.

We are drowning in strawman Christianity.   I don’t just mean progressivism.  I mean this hideous notion that what Jesus wants us to do is keep the corrupt and the sinful in power over us–because to do otherwise would be “unforgiving.”  This is a doctrine of hell.

So a shepherd in Tallahassee was preying on his congregation–he had seduced a man’s wife.  When he got caught, he announced he had no intention of stepping down–because to do so would be to deny his repentance.  Also his congregation should keep him running the church, because that would show how awesomely they had forgiven him.  Gaa!  Strawman Christianity and virtue signaling are twin poisons.

Virtue Signalling is just Pride that needs to be reassured. Pride, but without the confidence. All of the sin, but none of the upside.

That church needs a financial audit, quick. A pastor who will ___ one parishioner, will ___ them all.
