So can we? Can we be without sin? And when I say “without sin” I don’t mean forgiven sins you daily mess up on. What I am talking about is getting to a point where our lives have no habitual sins, consistent sin, and or disobedience to his word that I need to ask for forgiveness for? We will see pastors speak about sinful acts and rituals of man that saturated in sin all the time. But the word of God cuts like a double edge sword. It cuts the person who uses it and the person it’s used against. Just when you speak out against Masons and Eastern star members who have pagan and satanic symbols that represent them, you find that the symbol of the cross isn’t Christian by origin but pagan. Just when preach against Halloween and it’s origins that are that of Satanism and Pagan roots you look down on your feet and find Nike shoes who’s symbol is that of pagan idol goddess. Outside the church.. one man can look upon two men kissing and bring out the Bible showing where this is against scripture but then go home and watch porn of two women doing the same thing and now he is just as guilty of the same act in the eyes of the scripture but he doesn’t see it like that. Another can walk down the street and preach against racist white men and women, and yet they themselves won’t date outside of their color nor allow their children to do the same thing.
I’m not saying that all these things aren’t sins based on scripture because they are without a doubt. However, the more I dig the more I find wrong with the world and even me. The months of the year, days of the week all named after pagan gods to honor them. You could make the case that just by continuing to use and acknowledging these names you are honoring the gods that they were named after. The Bible never names the days of the week outside of the Sabbath. Why are we? Even the names of our planets honor false gods. What do I do with that? Rename them after Christian followers??? The candles you blow out on the cake is a ritual to honor a pagan god that was assigned to that day and month who is to grant you a wish and protection on your day of birth. This is why they say “make a wish and blow out the candles”. This world is truly saturated in evil and false gods and rituals that based on scripture keep us in sin. This is why we have to be separate from the world. But what does being separate involve? How far do you have to go to be free of some sort of sin you are committing? This is why denominations that point fingers at other denominations really aren’t any better than the other. In some way or another the same sin they say other denominations aren’t answering to, you can find 2 or 3 more connecting actions that is being done by them that link back to that very same sin in some way and most of the time they don’t even know it or rather accept it.
I have searched so hard for a path that I believed would lead me to a point of growth where sin would not exist in my actions and path that I walked outside of a momentary lapse mistake. I have grown to understand that this doesn’t exist for humans if you live and work in this world. Even some car names are based on false gods so should I not drive it anymore now? Bottom line should we should just go ahead and sin then? No, God forbid. But I do feel that if you seek to be perfect in deeds and actions living in this body you will be surely proven wrong every time. Even the disciples themselves struggled with sin even after walking with Christ and being filled with God’s Holy Spirit. So if they continued to struggle against it we have no hope of avoiding this same fate while here on this earth.
What I see is the answer for today is to just accept that we all sin and share the same sins even if we don’t know it. Ask for forgiveness and have understanding on others sin and position they are in on this day. This doesn’t mean to ignore sins or give the approval of sin done by others or yourself. It means to understand while you may not be doing someone else’s sin specifically, you just might be guilty of others that lead back to that sin or greater. We all fall short and I have yet to meet one single person that has a normal physical life that sin can’t be found in their life on a regular bases. Please introduce yourself if you exist!
