“If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would not have sin: but now they have both seen and hated Me and My Father as well” (John 15:24).
The great tragedy of many modern American pulpits is the abandonment of the historical/grammatical understanding of the biblical text, and to embrace other sources of authority, so as to accommodate as many lifestyles as possible—and all in the name of love. What could be more unloving, and self-damning, than the withholding of truth; to affirm what scripture has deemed sin? The one thing that makes God’s grace amazing is the reality of sin. The attempt to eliminate all the lines and boundaries defining sin, is but an expressed hatred for the Boundary Maker.
