What's It All About?

Burning the Bible is OK.
Flushing the Koran (impossible, by the way) is not.
Burning the flag is OK.
Disrespecting Islam is not.
What's wrong with this picture?
Ever since the Ten Suggestions were outlawed in public places, we have things like this going on. And we wonder why.
According to the Bible (Hey, it's my blog, I can refer to it if I want), sin comes in three basic forms:
  1. Sin is the trangression of God's law. 1 John 3:4
  2. Sin is knowing to do good, but refusing. James 4:17
  3. Sin is doing something you think is wrong. Romans 14:23
So, while it is possible for you and I to do the exact same thing with one sinning and one not, there are some definitive things that are sin no matter who does them. However, our relativistic world would prefer that all "sin" be in the mind, and therefore not real. If sin is not real, we don't need to worry about an accounting for our sins. We certainly would have no need of a Savior. "If it works for you, fine" doesn't cut it where the rape and abandonment of an eight year old girl is concerned.

Quite right. I'm still waiting for reports of the riots caused by Islamofascists desecrating the Bible, which they have done repeatedly.

And waiting...
