Only God is fit to judge and only Christ can save those who will be judged


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times In the eyes of God, all sin is sin. All sins are bad because sin separates us from God. It is a separation that, if not bridged, can lead to our eternal separation from God. We all sin and in sinning separate ourselves from God. Each and every one of us is a sinner and therefore each and every one of us separates ourselves from God and risks eternal separation. This makes us all equal in the eyes of God and because we share that equality we should be very careful about judging one another because God will judge us all. We have no appeal from His judgments, no appeal, that is, except the shed blood of Jesus Christ. By being baptized in the blood of Christ when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior and allow the Holy Spirit to take charge of our lives we gain the bridge that enables us to cross the gulf that sin has created between us and God. Even then, however, we are not perfect and are still vulnerable to sin, but we are less likely to give into that vulnerability because Christ is with us and allows us to lean on Him as we allow Him to guide us. When we do that, we will understand that we, like all other sinners, cannot overcome our sinful nature without Christ’s help. When we realize that, we will not see other sinners through the lens of our personal judgments, but through the eyes of Christ and His love for all of us and reach out to them as He reached out to us.
