An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

A Greater Sin

(Pro 6:33 KJV)  A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away.

We tend to think of all sin as being equal and in once sense that is true.  We are told that breaking any part of the law has serious consequences.
(Matthew 5:19 KJV)  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
At the same time some sins are more offensive to God than others.  Adultery, dealt with here, is not like other sins.  It is a “reproach” (2781) that will not be “wiped away” (blotted out NASB) (4229a).  Sexual sin is right up with idolatry to generate God’s wrath.  That is because both are aimed at intimate covenants. 

So?  Reject the conditioning of our popular culture.  Reject any sexual involvement outside of marriage.  You might find that easier if you change what you watch and read.
