Hate the sin
May 31, 2013 § 5 Comments
The idea that fornicating with the same person over and over again is morally superior to fornicating the same number of times with different people is pervasive. I suspect that is because the relationship many are in right now began as a fornicationship; and if not one’s own relationship, perhaps it is true of many of the relationships of the people one loves.
Because of the pervasiveness of long term fornicationships, acts of fornication in a long term relationship have taken on a kind of sacred quality in our culture. Folks are kind of sorry that they did it, but they aren’t really and fully sorry they did it. Folks kinda sorta disapprove of the sin, but they don’t hate the sin.
But if you don’t hate sin, you are not a follower of Christ.
