Just a closer walk with thee….

7Deadly SinsI often wonder why folk act like sex is THE #1 sin. Like, as long as they are not having casual sex, or premarital sex, everything else they do is just okay cool.

I mean, is there one sin that is worse than any other sin?

For me, as a Bible reader and a God believer, I would think that, as the Bible proclaims, blasphemy of the Holy Spirit would be about the only sin that is greater than any other sin. That’s the one UNFORGIVABLE sin… (Matt. 12:31-32)

(SIDE NOTE: Perhaps, all this time, I’ve been wrong in my understanding about the sin of committing suicide. Apparently, a person who has not claimed the salvation of Jesus’s death on the cross for his/her sins will not be forgiven suicide, but one who has accepted Jesus as his/her Lord and savior will be forgiven, is already forgiven. (John 10:28) But, perhaps that is also another blog, too…)

Anyway, this blog isn’t meant to be very long to read…but about that whole celibacy thing…………………………..

How much closer to God are you getting if you don’t have casual sex, or premarital sex, but spend your time judging other people who do…or just spend your time judging other people, period?
How much closer to God are you getting being celibate, but talk about other people behind their backs?
How much closer to God are you getting being celibate, but don’t like this person or that person because of some self-perceived notion about that person’s life?
How much closer to God are you getting being celibate, but you spend so much time condemning His children, when that isn’t even your job…When your faith IN God is at an all-time low…When your works clearly can’t speak for you…When your life resembles everybody else’s life, only without the sex?

I’m not saying you aren’t getting closer to God, you may be, but celibacy……..???????
I don’t know…that don’t seem like it really gives you a leg up if you’re low down in a bunch of other “Thou Shalt Not” areas in life.

One thought on “Just a closer walk with thee….

  1. Illicit sex as the #1 sin? That would seem like an exaggeration. I made my own personal list of evils that do harm to other people or generally sicken the soul a while ago.

    Violence (assault/murder) was first. Illicit sex was last. (Dishonesty, disrespect, and greed were in the middle.)
