The Language of God - A God of all cultures post

In Christianity Jesus talks about the pharisees who decorate the tombs of the righteous and then say they are not like their fathers who killed them - so they testify against themselves that they are the sons of those who killed the righteous and should therefore fill up the measure of their sin on judgment day.

One thing I think of is those pastors who accentuate the difficulties of discipleship and tried to drive out the hatred of sin with the language of sin which is hatred and sin masking as godliness

An example of this is when a Christian refers to a woman who sleeps around with derogatory language

While the bible encourages monogamy the act of hatred is according to Moses worse than the act of sexual disharmony

Only people who struggle with sexual purity hate sexually impure people

A true Christian not tempted by lust will behave like a peaceful and respectful non participant too busy focusing on love and gratitude to waste even a second of time hating people who commit sexual sin even though he himself does not practice it

Satan cannot drive out Satan

so hatred cannot drive out sin

because hatred itself is a sin

what drives out sin is peace and love and satisfaction and humility

you don’t have to hate any group or social class of people or mock any sexual woman to achieve those ideals

    Yeah I follow Taoism. Very similar except less focus on sins and no actual God.
    Is this still revelant?

    My god is the mightiest of them all, he stands above Jesus/Jehova or whatever his name was. You find him way above them all. He is Northern, he lives in Asgaard.

    God is love. But even God hates... sin.
    Hating humans is not good but hating sin is good. Because sin destroys the image of God in the human being. Sin is transgression of the law of God. Sure is that sexual wrong behaviour is sin. Any sexual action out of marriage is sin. And greed and egoism and lack of helping others is sin too. And many things more... And we can't say that one sin is bigger than another. We have to flee from any sin. But without the Holy spirit we can't have the victory over any sin. Some people try to be a disciple of the son of God without the Holy spirit. This can't work and the laws made to make possible a spiritual life without the Holy spirit are an origin of religious suppression and are to be banned on the whole globe.
    • The special problem with sexual sins is that they think that they have the right to be wrong, have the right to sin. Some of them are even proud to sin.

      I believe having sex with only your wife isn’t a sin than having sex with a girl that you haven’t married yet right?

    Proverbs 6:16 - 19
    16 There are six things the Lord hates,
    seven that are detestable to him:
    17 haughty eyes,
    a lying tongue,
    hands that shed innocent blood,
    18 a heart that devises wicked schemes,
    feet that are quick to rush into evil,
    19 a false witness who pours out lies
    and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

    There are numerous versus on what God hates. You have a point that we should not be blinded by hate or hate each other, but as it's often said: Hate the Sin, not the Sinner. God hates sin and as we grow like him we will hate it more, but it starts in our own lives. As Jesus said, take the plank out of your eye first. We shall speak out against all evil, but it shall be God's words, not our own. We can hate things, actions, ideas, and or beliefs, but never people. When we speak out we should consider the approach.
