Today’s Sermon

Love one another. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Judge not lest you be judged. Who’s perfect here? Can you see into another man’s soul? You judge outside actions you have only heard of and don’t understand because the people you judge are those you never bother to befriend or aid in any way. As much as you have done this for them you do also unto me. Are you the one who left the Samaritan on the side of the road? Others may fail. Others will fail. You fail and I fail. What is failure? We have all failed in the eyes of God. Is your sin ‘worse’ than others? How can you gauge the weight of sin? Your desire to destroy others through God as a proxy is sin. God will decide. You won’t. Thou shalt not kill. If you do not repent, you will be devoured by your own selfishness. This is extremely sad that you cannot find joy in the Lord, but only hatred. You are threatened by other’s beliefs or lack of belief. Why? If they are doing wrong, love them. If they do not repent of their sin, leave them to God and then focus on others who may come to believe. In general, you are wasting your time focusing on other people’s sin when your and my sin is just as troublesome to God. Political solutions will never solve what lies in a man’s or a woman’s heart. I will be praying for God’s peace for all of us.
