This brief article will address the wicked practice of people using God’s holy scripture to defend sin.
Here’s scripture that is so frequently wrested out of context:
“Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.
37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:”
For starters, I am not judging anyone, God will do all of the judging of people. I am abhorring evil & reproving the unfruitful works of darkness, (as God tells us Christians to do in scripture, as you will soon see).
I’m also telling the workers of iniquity that God offers them salvation in the risen Lord Jesus Christ by grace through faith. And I’m telling them that if He saved me in my wickedness, then He can do it for you too. If anyone hasn’t come to Him for salvation to be cleansed of their guilt, then they haven’t come to Him legitimately for salvation. We are all dead in our trespasses and sins apart from being saved, (Ephesians 2.1, Colossians 2.13).
[Moreover, if defenders of iniquity really embraced that section of scripture regarding “judge not” (as they define its meaning), then why would any abortion supporter defend the prosecution of any mother who kills one of her toddler children?
(Hypocrites of all ilk) wrest scripture out of context for their personal gain, just as false prophets do].
Why don’t these same people also reference the following scripture?
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
“Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.”
“Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.”
“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,”
Killing defenseless children is wickedness, and claiming Holy scripture as a defense to do it is extreme wickedness! It’s blasphemy against God to use His words to defend evil!
Repentance unto God is the solution to these sins, but for such people who will not repent unto the Lord Jesus Christ, terror will overwhelm them at their judgment such as they have never known.
“And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
“For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.
31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.”
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ.
