."God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?" (Romans 6:2)
It is not normal for a saved man to allow sin to go unchallenged in his life. The true believer will hate sin in his life and fight it. How could a man who has the spirit of God indwelling him, think nothing of allowing blatant sin to remain unopposed. Jesus said, "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other." (Matthew 6:24) Paul explains further, "Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? (Romans 6:16)
we could get into the philosophy of what "Being" means, but I think we all know what was meant in this statement.
I like Daniel Tosh's view on Homosexuality.
See, Every Homosexual in this country that I know, know what my religion feels about their lifestyle. They want to do what they do, its on them. I have been directed by my savior to love my neighbor and not to judge.
It is between that person and Jesus what kind of life they live. It is my responsibility to love my neighbor and to judge not unless ye be judged. Its not my job to correct a behavior. Its my job to make the introduction to Jesus if you've never heard of him and pray for your salvation if you have and rebuke him.
It's on big guns upstairs to correct you in any way he see fits.
If a murderer then asks for forgiveness and becomes a Christian are you better or worse than he is? How about your sin? Is the sin you commit on a daily basis better or worse than murder?
