Is It Any Wonder Christians Are Not Taken Seriously
The article speaks for itself. We are called to be separate, set apart, and Holy.
This should not be a reason for finger-pointing but instead a reason for grieving and praying that people so deceived who think that grace is an excuse to sin instead of the power to say no to sin. God says very clearly that we are to be holy as He is holy and that without holiness no one will see God. Is it any wonder that the world mocks Christians? Those that teach holiness and righteousness are considered legalistic. I once heard with my own two ears a pastor say that in order to really appreciate God’s grace we had to explore our sin nature. How stupid is that? Sin does really make you stupid. Holiness is not an option or a nice thought but instead it’s a command from the most high God.
