It doesn't matter where you're sinning, you're still sinning

It doesn’t matter where you’re sinning, you’re still sinning



Last night (Saturday), my mother and I had a conversation about my uncle and daddy. One lives here and one crashes here, when one of his girlfriends gets tired of him. I told her, if I had a boyfriend and if I was having sex, the next logical step would be moving in with him, so I can get all the sex I want (I didn’t tell her that part though). Her response was: Do you want them living in sin?

She ignored the fact that both men are having sex with their respective women(s). I told her, they are still sinning, whether they are going over to visit or if they move in. Where they are sinning does not make it less of a sin. On judgment day, God isn’t going to say, well since you sinned here, instead of there, then you are good in my eyes. Enter the pearly gates of heaven, my child.

It doesn’t matter where you’re sinning, you’re still sinning.

Biblical loopholes. What places are ok to sin in and not get in trouble? Not with your self or others, but with God. If I cuss in church, is it more or less sin than if I do it at home? If I have an impure thought at the grocery store, is it ok versus me having an impure thought at home?

The relatives are still having sex. Still engaging in fornication, pre-marital sex, and maybe promiscuity. If it wasn’t ok for God when I was fornicating and being promiscuous, then it’s not ok for the uncles. If it wasn’t ok for God when I was shacking up with men, then it’s not ok for the rest of us sinners. Justifying and rationalizing the sin based on location, does not make it any less of a sin.

It doesn’t matter where you’re sinning, you’re still sinning.

UPDATE

Today in Sunday School, Frank (rest in peace. He died in 2016).  touched on the same topic.  He said all sin is sin to God. No sin is greater or less than one another. You're responsible for your own sins. You're responsible for how you justify and rationalize your sins. It is your decision whether you choose to sin or not.

  2. That gave me stuff to think about. I am lax in my home with language and such. I like a blog that makes you think.

    1. @Janelle exactly. My mama was more concerned about shacking up than the sex.

  5. Sinning is sinning no matter where you do it! Too true. God is everyone. He sees and knows what you're saying and doing. If you wouldn't feel comfortable doing it in church, you shouldn't be doing it.

    1. Exactly Chasity. Sin is sin, whether at home or out in public. That was the point, I tried to make to my mother. I should send her the link to this post. :-)

  6. Isn't it funny how you hear the same message in church that you've been thinking about outside of church? I have had that happen more times than I can count. :)

  7. Totally agree with your post. Sin is sin in God's eye whether we humans consider it small or big they are all sin and violates God's law. Nowadays people treat evil as good and treat good as evil. But what are their measuring stick for these moral values/laws? I would say God's Words should be the measuring stick for all moral laws because He is perfect, Holy and Just and He never change.

  9. There is no great sin or small sin. In God's eyes they are all the same. I think it's easy for us people concentrate in sins like premarital sex and forget how we sin by unforgiveness and by being judgemental. By coldness and distance and by not trusting everything in God's hands.
    Pride is the sin that made angels fall, and still we pride on how we can be good and work things out in our lives.
