A list of Sins (Sins of Commission)

God is not asking your opinion  on this.  As smart, as religious, as important as you may think that you are,  God does not care about what you feel, or think; this is not a discussion.   

God declares that these are sins against Him.  If you don’t agree, if you have “buts”, if you have “tolerance”, if you are politically correct,  you need to get this one idea not only though your brain but your Heart.   You do not get to decide what a Sin is, You do not get to decide what is right and wrong, nor do you get to decide if you are forgiven (even if you have forgiven yourself), and God is not interested in your opinion on the subject.  You will either repent and receive grace, or you will receive what you deserve. YOU ARE NOT GOD.  

Just a word of caution, a word of truth - "He who turns away his ear from listening to the law, Even his prayer is an abomination." Proverbs 28:9

  1. Great post! Sometimes we forget how wretched and sinful we are. We water down our sin and justify to ourselves "oh it's not THAT bad." Yes, we are bad...filthy, terrible people, but I'm so glad that He saved a wretch like me!
