Sin is NOT Conditional

conditional

Perhaps the reader has encountered something like the following?

While out shopping with an acquaintance recently, a stop was made at a local branch of a large, national chain store.  The acquaintance went inside to acquire various items on his list.  Upon his return, the shopper casually remarked that “somehow” a box of candy ended up in his shopping bag.  It was then further offered that the acquaintance was not aware of the box of candy in his bag until he left the store.  He then offered that “It’s not like they’ll notice a little box of candy.  It’s not like it would break them.”

It was at that moment (after the last attempt at justification) that the thought occurred that “Sin–specifically theft–is not conditional on HOW VALUABLE the item pilfered might be.”

Another thought occurred that in the end times, theft is one of the sins of which men will not repent.  THEFT is one of the five great great sins mentioned by the Bible (Besides theft, murders, sorceries, fornication and idolatry are mentioned.)

“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
–Revelation 9:20-21

While various legal penalties DO base their punishments on the amount of the crime, God’s Word does not.

Sin is NOT conditional.  Very few sign contracts when they commit sins.

Has the reader encountered someone who downplayed a sin because it was only a “little one”? (This is especially true of lying, stealing and or cheating with someone other than your partner.)

HAS the reader encountered someone who attempted to justify his behavior based on the small significance of the behavior?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
