“There is none righteous, no, not one”
Romans 3:10 wasn’t kidding.
Neither was Jesus when he called the self-righteous rulers of the day a “generation of vipers”. That pretty much sums up the political field today. While I still believe there ARE some good people in politics, there aren’t any without some kind of baggage. Sin has found its way to the doorstep of everyone. That doesn’t justify anything or anyone. It is simple a statement of fact.
The selective outrage against political opponents has become acceptable and common place. One doesn’t have to look far to see striking examples of this self-righteous indignation. Many who are calling for Judge Roy Moore to step aside because of allegations of sexual improprieties also voted for Bill Clinton. Accusations of racism are launched by those who looked the other way when it came to their Leftist darling, Senator Robert Byrd, who was a leader in the Ku Klux Klan. There is no shortage of hypocrisy in the world of politics. If I were to make a list, it would be a long one. On both sides of the political isle.
The Apostle Paul, who was a murderer and persecutor of Christians was converted and used mightily by God. The thief on the cross next to Jesus was ushered into heaven when Jesus saw his faith and repentance. God never justified sin. He transforms the sinner. In the day of Jesus, it was those who were making the accusations who were actually the biggest transgressors. Some things never change.
To my Leftist friends, and Establishment Republicans who are consumed with the political feeding frenzies, a few words of advice. As you dig for bones in the graveyard of your adversary’s distant past, be careful. You might unearth some of your own. We would all do well to spend more of our time grieving over our own sin, rather than reveling in the past sin of others.
Is sin justifiable? No. Is it forgivable? Yes. Can God use us after we experience a transformation in Christ? Absolutely.
Look at your own sin. Yes, you have it. You need a Savior. When you stand before God, you will be acountable for your own wickedness, unless it is covered by the blood of Christ.
Your political views would be quite different if you first dealt with your own sin.
