“Why do evangelicals make as if there are some sins that are worst than others? Sin is sin!"


The confusion emanates from the usage of the word “sin.” There is sin (make, kind) and acts of sins (model, type). For example, a teacher and the different specialties like Science teacher, Arts teacher, Social Studies teacher and Math teacher. In this teaching, there are some that have a high employment rate, but there are others that don’t. Sin is defined as missing the mark. That begins from birth (Psalm 51:5; Rom 3:23). It happened through the Federal Head Theory.  One man (Adam) sinned and the sinned goes down to the entire human race (Romans 5:12). Thenceforth, everyone is born a sinner. However, sin is manifested in these four ways: when you act out of faith, when you knowingly refused to do good, when you transgress the law and when you do unrighteous acts. Nonetheless, there are some sins that are not only spiritually damning, they are physically destructive. This paper will exemplify the kinds and types of sins and also show why some are pardonable and others are not. I will start with types.
Any faithlessness is sin (Romans 14:23). It is a sin to doubt if something is right, yet you do it. When there is confusion between your synderisis and syneidesis, faith takes precedence because you have failed to live by even the law. Since no man is saved by the law, then he must survive by grace. If you fail to use grace, then you have missed the mark.
Deliberately refusing to do good works (James 4:17). Not doing the good works, like refusing to keep yourself healthy is sin. It is a sin to know something is right, yet you don’t do it because you should always do the right thing when you know it and can. It is good works that will shine for people to see and know that you have believed in God so they can give glory to Him. They cannot enter into your heart to ascertain if you have believed or not.
Sin is transgression of the law (I John 3:4). Let me put it this way; missing the mark is not fulfilling the law (the law of God). That is why some people may not have had the Ten Commandments to fulfill the law, yet they did it anyway because God is everywhere, and He has written his law in the hearts of all people; their consciences bear them witness as their thoughts accuse or defend them sometimes. Whether you believe in God or not, there is a time when the things that you do undo go trial in your heart, and it is your conscience that is the sitting judge, while your thoughts act as the lawyers.
All unrighteousness is sin (I Jn 5:17). Do you remember when Micah was confused about what to give God? God told him this, “… to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God (Micah 6:8).” The first thing was justice. Any injustice is sin. This requires you to act equitably in word and in deeds. Racism is not an act of righteousness because it is total injustice! Those who practice and benefit from the windfalls of racism are constantly and deliberately living in sin. The benefactors are likened to recipients of stolen goods.
Every human being is still guilty of the examples I described. However, while the original sin mentioned in Psalm 51:5 and Romans 3:23 are taken away when you confess with your mouth and believe with your heart  in Christ (Romans 10:9-10, 13), you can act out the other examples which you appropriate forgiveness by confessing and forsaking your sins (Proverbs 28:13). Despite the availability of absolution through the salvific plan of the messianic sacrifice, some are not forgiven, the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit and the continuous rejection of grace by deliberately living in sin (Hebrews 10:26). Here is why blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is unpardonable.
By refusing a known fact about God or Jesus, is refuting the existence of that fact; thus, constituting blasphemy. When any one rejects the suffering of Christ (Is 53:3-6; 2 Cor 1:5-7; 15:3; Heb 2:10; 5:8; 9:28; I Pet 1:11; 2:24-25; 4:13; 5:1), they are blaspheming against God. In other words, they are saying the Bible is telling lies; thus, God is a liar. The Bible talks more about the suffering of Christ than the joy of the Master. To negate the existence of his suffering through which we are redeemed means that they are not acknowledging the source of their salvation; consequently, such will definitely die in their sins. That is the reason why blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is unpardonable. The sin in itself plunges you into eternal damnation.
There is also a second occasion where the quality of our sins is different. That is where homosexuality comes in. If we deliberately keep missing the mark, even when we have obtained salvation, there will no more be any sacrifice. For example, if you believe in Christ, yet you are living in homosexuality which refuses to procreate, which is an ordnance of God.  
Having kids out of wedlock is unrighteousness that is sin but not unto death (venial) I Jn 5:17, unlike blasphemy against the Holy Spirit which is a mortal sin (I Jn 5:16 and Mt 12:31).  Furthermore, there are two kinds of sins: venial and mortal (I Jn 5:16) because some sins like adultery can be forgiven, even if they have no means of restitution; meanwhile, others cannot. They affect the soul of the doer directly!  
To decorticate the meaning of 1 John 5:16-17, we must keep these verses parallel to Romans 3:23; 6:23, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God;” “The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ our Lord.” Consequently, every sin leads unto spiritual death. How then can there be sin that does not lead unto death and one that does? The verse means, there is sin that has been marked out as unpardonable (which is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit), and there is another one like those above that are not. Those that can obtain mercy are venial; whereas, the ones that cannot obtain mercy are mortal. Sexual sins are egregious and spiritually mortal (I Corinthians 6:18), but they are not the mortal sin (hamartia) per se. 
It is important to remember that the body is regarded as the temple of God. Thus, other sins touch the outer court of the temple, but sexual sins enter further into the Holy of Holies. How? When you commit sexual sin, you take the temple (your body), wherein God lives and you join it with a harlot. Therefore, you are forcing the Lord to join himself to evil. Since God does not share his glory with man, he servers himself from the defaulter. That body becomes unredeemable at the moment of the sin. When the individual rejoins himself or herself to God through confession which serves as absolution, they bring with them physical and spiritual woes. Consequently, Solomon said, “But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul. A wound and dishonour shall he get; and his reproach shall not be wiped away (Proverbs 6:32-33).” Sexual sins are a direct spiritual attack against God because sex is a spiritual act and not a physical one.
You must note why sexual sin is against the body. When we believe in Christ, we become one spirit in body (I Cor 6:17). We demonstrate our union in water baptism (Rom 6:4-6) and then proceed to acquire spiritual power in Holy Ghost Baptism (Mt 3:11; Mk. 1:8; Lk. 3:16; Jn. 1:33; Acts 1:5, 2, 11:16; I Cor. 12:13). Thus, we are married to God. When we commit sexual immorality, we have sinned. It is like adultery; meanwhile, “thou shall not commit adultery (Ex 20:7).” It means that we have broken the vow; whereas marriage brings oneness (Gen 2:24). At that moment, we create two bodies. That is why you are asked to flee rather than resist (I Cor 6:18; Col 3:5; 2 Tim 2:22; 1 Pet 2:11). It is the only sin where you cannot stand to fight; you must only flee because no mortal; no matter how disciplined and holy they have been, has ever fought and won the sin of sex. To win the fight, you must not even fight it; you must flee from it. The church fathers used a phrase “Alia vitia pugnando, sola libido fugiendo vincitur” meaning that “all other sins could be conquered by fighting, but sexual sin is by flight only.”
Now you understand that when sex takes place, we entangle our spirits with the individual we are having sex. Do you remember, “Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness (2 Cor 6:14)?” You also understand that blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is unpardonable. Therefore, all sins are not equal. Although every crime is punishable, but some are more punishable than others.

Until then, I hope I made the distinction that all sins do not have the same weight.

Dark Pages



When the days get darker,
Do not fret all night long.
Every night will always end.
A new day will soon start.  

When your tears flow down,
Do not regret your past.
Every past will always end.
A new future will soon start.

When your labor is all in vain,
Do not be depressed of failure.
Every disappointment has an end.
A new objective will soon start.

When your love bears no fruits,
Do not ever give up hope to love.
Every seed must die to germinate.
A new love season will soon start.

You will conquer if you fret not.
You will rejoice if you regret not.
You will succeed if you depress not.
You will be loved if you hate not.

"Gregg Easterbrook Needs to Read the Bible Again!"


While I do not support Kim Davis’ refusal to sign marriage licenses, it is my belief that Gregg Easterbrook is wrong in his interpretation and application of the verses that prohibit gay marriage. The bible is unequivocally forthright about homosexuality. My task is to show how he has quoted the bible amok and applied it amiss.  
The author tries to give his article more credibility by stating that he is merely going to cite from the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). If anyone knows about translations and the history thereof, they will agree that the reason the NRSV is widely acclaimed is mainly because it is more ecumenical than any other version since it is much more dynamically equivalent than any other version out there. Those for ecumenism outnumber those against, so it is proper to have an ecumenical tool as the flag bearer. That does not diminish the quality of the translation. It is no doubt a very good translation because it accommodates almost all denominations. Notwithstanding, the NRSV does not surpass the King James Version; it rather actualizes it.
He correctly points out the prohibition of homosexuality in the Old Testament (OT), but then asked, “Why don’t today’s Judeo-Christians believe in slavery and filicide?” The reason why some of these things prohibited in the OT would not be carried over is simply because some of them were ceremonial and civil laws of the people in the days. Only moral laws transcend cultures and people; ceremonial and civil laws do not, albeit, new societies could borrow their concepts to build upon. The society nowadays has its own decency laws.
              He falters greatly in his attempt to interpret and apply these verses, “Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.” He quibbles from these verses which clearly prohibit a man from having intercourse with another man and a woman having intercourse with another woman by arguing that, “many church-married, monogamous, man-woman, devout Christian couples engage in acts once thought perversion.” That does not eliminate the crux of this passage. It is almost as if he was saying, “I know that the Bible prohibits homosexuality, but there are other people who are doing bad things too. I know I was speeding, but there were other people driving on the HOV lane too, officer.” Two wrongs do not a right make, Easterbrook!
The author said that “Beyond this, Paul frowned on all sexual interaction, including by men and women married to each other. (I Corinthians 7:29.)” Indeed, Paul did as his personal opinion. Paul was speaking about the encumbrance of marriage to the accomplishment of the work of God and not on the type or nature of sex. In homosexuality, we are dealing with the type of sex, which is prohibited. Therefore, Easterbrook has once again misused the bible in his application.
He gets it again wrong that sex was absent from the New Testament. Sex didn’t seem very important to Jesus’ followers because the glory of heaven outweighed a million coituses, but their heathen compatriots basked themselves in orgies and all sorts of debaucheries because in this world only, they had hope. Carpe Diem was their devilry, so they subconsciously muttered, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” Thus, sex is not absent from the New Testament (NT).
It is true that the key word in Romans 1:26-27 is “natural,” but it is in usage rather than in nature. It says clearly, “Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse…”
The word “natural” describes the noun “intercourse.” It is not dealing with one’s sexuality; it is dealing with one’s proclivity. Jesus said, “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’” (Mark 10:6). That is their sexuality; it is natural. That is the way they were made. The Bible reads, “Therefore, a man leaves his father and his mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh.” People are naturally born male or female, except in cases of anomalies, and they are expected to have intercourse with the opposite sex. That is the natural way. This should settle the preference issue because the prescription is clear; a man should have sexual intercourse with a female and a female should have sexual intercourse with a male. If people decide to do the contrary, they operate in the realm of the unnatural. In so doing, they will receive due penalty for their error.  
The author again goes back to false analogies by alluding to Christians who divorce despite Matthew 5:32 and the impossibility of the rich entering into heaven (Matthew 19:24). Look, impossible things to men are possible to God (Luke 18:27), especially when God is the one calling men unto salvation (2 Thessalonians 2:13). Although in both situations there is great difficulty in achieving the kingdom, they do not upgrade homosexuality to righteousness. No matter what the evil the Christian right or liberals commit, their acts do not upgrade homosexuality to a God-approved practice. It was so in the beginning, it is so now, so shall it be till the end.
However, I do agree with Easterbrook that “Jesus summed up Christian theology in one sentence: ‘This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.’” Nevertheless, love does not exempt admonishment. Paul told the Colossians, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.” (Colossians 3:16), and Ezekiel told the Israelites:
Mortal, I have made you a sentinel for the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. 18If I say to the wicked, ‘You shall surely die’, and you give them no warning, and do not speak to warn the wicked from their wicked way, in order to save their life, those wicked persons shall die for their iniquity; but their blood I will require at your hand. 19 But if you warn the wicked, and they do not turn from their wickedness, or from their wicked way, they shall die for their iniquity; but you will have saved your life. 20Again, if the righteous turn from their righteousness and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block before them, they shall die; because you have not warned them, they shall die for their sin, and their righteous deeds that they have done shall not be remembered; but their blood I will require at your hand. (Ezekiel 3:17-20).
            Easterbrook and co, if you hear the word of the Lord, you should not harden your heart. Homosexuality was an evil practice then, it is now, and it will be forever.

Until then, Kim Davis and Easterbrook are both wrong.

“Is Kim Davis right to have refused licenses to gays?”


It is my belief that the Bible prohibits gay marriage, but Kim Davis’s reaction seems a little bit preposterous. The fact that she has been married four times waters down a great deal her moral authority. Furthermore, when a hostile crowd came to Joash to complain that his son, Gideon had destroyed the temple of Baal, he told them, “…Will ye plead for Baal? Will ye save him? He that will plead for him, let him be put to death whilst it is yet morning: if he be a god, let him plead for himself, because one hath cast down his altar (Judges 6:31).”  Is God that too weak to defend Himself? I believe that in the face of a conflict between the authority of man and that of God, Christians “ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). In one of my articles, “When Should Christians Disobey Their Government?” I explained that Christians could disobey the law of man, if it conflicts with the law of God, but Kim Davis’ situation is very different.
She is an elected official. Which means that she campaigned for the position and knew the job responsibilities. The constitution is very clear about the separation of church and state. Reading what Christians write when I disagree with them on conservative websites, I definitely agree that there should be clear separation between church and state. This is serious because you cannot imagine a Muslim clerk refusing a license to women  because it goes contrary to his beliefs that women should not drive, or imagine an atheist refusing a marriage license to Christians because they believe in God, something totally against her religion. Let us say that there is a county clerk out there who does not believe in digamy, and she refuses to issue marriage license to people who have been divorced because it is against her belief, even once. Would Kim Davis love the idea?
Kim Davis’ situation is different from the case of Daniel, Meshack, Shadrack and Abednego or even the disciples. In this case, you have the choice to resign. In theirs, they had to bow or die. The choice she had was either to sign the license or resign. By signing those licenses, Kim’s faith is not affected in anyway. It is not about heaven or hell, salvation or damnation. It is a personal choice that each of us must makes. Jesus was a prime example on how to handle a law that you disagreed with, and you had a choice to obey, without it affecting your trust and belief in God.
There are times when a Christian can disobey the government. That is if the law of man conflicts with the law of God, and she/he has no way out of it. In this case, she has two alternatives: resign and not partake in their evil or remain and issue the licenses. However, she cannot remain and then refuse to issue the licenses because it would be disobedience to authority. It is on basis of that doctrine that Jesus paid his taxes. His disciples did not want him to pay taxes, but he advised them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." 
There is an earthly authority called Caesar, and we must give to Caesar what is Caesar and to God what is God (Matthew 22:21).  It simply means that the Christians are not exempt from obeying the rules of their earthly governments when they do not infract the laws of God. Sometimes though, the Christians will not be committing sin if they disobey certain laws, but because they are not inherently sinful, though inconvenient, they should respect them for the sake of peace and societal tact (Matthew 17:27).
The time to fight this battle physically has passed. Now that it has become the law of the land, the Christians must kowtow but wrestle the “principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” that have taken a stranglehold of this country. In general, the Christians must supplicate, pray and intercede for all men, including kings and all those in authority, whether we agree with them or not, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceably life on earth (I Timothy 2:1-2; I Peter. 2:13-15, 17). Remember that your peace shall depend upon the land in which you dwell (Jeremiah 29:7). The law of the spirit governs the spiritual man, and the law of the flesh governs the physical man (Romans 7:23; Galatians 5:16). The Christians cannot be taken out of the world; consequently, they can only be preserved from evil because they are not of this world (John 17:15-17).

Nonetheless, although she is not right, she does not deserve jail time. 

Until then, I believe that she has misunderstood the word.

“Can You Remarry If You Have Been Divorced?"




                 This question to me is very simple to answer. The bible does not prohibit remarriage because it gives reasons why one could divorce and remarry. If you were voluntarily sent away by your spouse, you could remarry (Deut 24:2). The woman was only prohibited from remarrying her ex-husband (Deut 24:4; Jer 3:1). Another instance one could remarry is if they divorced an adulterous spouse (Mt 19:9). The third was if a spouse deserts or abandons her marital home and absconds, the remaining spouse can remarry (I Cor 7:15). Therefore, my task will be to elucidate the points above.
In Deuteronomy 24:2, marriage is used euphemistically. The divorced woman can remarry if sent away. For example, if your husband divorced you, you had the right to remarry. That explains why some couples wait for their spouses to engage the divorce process. I saw a couple one time who were holding up their divorce, so they could have grounds for remarriage grounds.  They said that they were separated. I asked the husband why he did not just divorce his wife to restart from zero, and he told me that if he did, he would be ineligible for remarriage, I was surprised.
God prohibited a man from marrying a sister in law as retribution or while her sister was still alive (Lev 18:18). That does not mean that he prohibited digamy altogether. Let me use an example that would be current. If someone said; “do not marry your sister in-law to make her angry or while your ex-wife (who is her sister) is still alive, they are not saying you cannot remarry at all. It actually means that you can remarry on conditions that it is not a form of retribution or that your sister in-law is still alive.
However, there are two conditions: one, you should not remarry your ex’s wife sister just because you want to make her angry and 2, you cannot married your ex-wife’s sister while she is still alive.  In England, there was the Deceased wife’s Act that allowed a man to marry his dead’s wife’s sister which was prohibited originally.
Nonetheless, God prohibited digamy (Lev 18.6). By prohibiting incestuous marriages, God automatically prohibited any remarriage to siblings (Lev 18:18). Marrying sister in law while her sister was still alive. You must remember that these laws were ceremonial laws which do not transcend cultures. The second condition for remarriage was actually given by Jesus.
He said, ‘And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery Mt 19:9.” If you divorce your wife for any other reason other than adultery and you remarry, you have committed adultery. Take note that the prohibition is not on remarriage, it is on the reason for the divorce. Divorce per se is wrong; it was not in the original plan of God. It became tolerated rather than prescribed due. Consequently, due to the hardness of our hearts, we divorce, but the condition for remarriage are still there. The third condition was given by Paul.
In I Corinthians 7:10-15, 39. Paul is against divorce as ordered by the Lord. However, if she runs away, she should remain single or she should go back to her husband. The husband should not put his way away. It is important to remember that at this time in that culture, most men married women. So only the man had the right to divorce their wife. If you wife or husband decides to divorce and go away, the remaining spouse is free to remarry.  If remarriages was altogether evil, Paul would not have suggested as a personal opinion. Why is she no more under bondage? I want you to follow me slowly. A marriage is a bond in love that is sexually administered.
There are five elements that make up a covenant: agreement, oath, sacrifice, witness and feast. God is the executioner of every covenant because every covenant is supposed to be eternal and only one who is eternal can over see it. Now, if one person leaves the covenant, he or she is considered dead. God cannot no more excuse the covenant because one party is dead, so the person who is alive becomes free (I Cor 7:39); otherwise, the widow would not be eligible to remarry. That is why Paul makes an explicit explanation to the Romans (Rom 7:2-3).  By quitting the covenant of the Law, man becomes dead to sin in Christ. He is resurrected in the covenant of grace; whereby he becomes a new creature; behold all things have become new.
We have to reconcile Mt 5:32 and Mt 19:9 and I Cor 7: 10-15, 39; otherwise, the Bible will be showing a lot of contradiction. Even though adultery dissolved the bond, the people are still married before God until there is a bill of divorcement which now puts an end to the covenant as if one or both parties were dead. That is why Mark adds, “against her (Mk 10:11).” In doing so, we can safely conclude that God tolerates digamy in those three conditions, if the spouse was chased away, if the spouse absconded or if the spouse was caught in adultery.

Until then, I hope this answers your question.

“Dear Salary, Why Are You Not Growing?”

“Dear Salary, Why Are You Not Growing?”

Four friends lived in a village
Fuel was born from the ground
Bread was born in the factory
Meat was born in the farm
Salary was born in the house

Four friends lived in a village
Everywhere fuel grew taller
Everyday bread grew taller
Every time meat grew taller
Every year salary was the same

Four friends lived in a village
Fuel was renamed Oil War
Bread was elevated in status
Meat had a visa to go overseas
Salary was sick and in bondage

Four friends lived in a village
Salary’s dwarfness was awkward
The council enjoyed his disability
The people sought for diagnosis
The results were malnourishment

Four friends lived in a village
Father cried, “Let salary grow tall!”
Council hid the perfusion underneath
Throngs marched loudly, “Salary grow!”
Salary grew again in minimum wage.
