As the controversy about fallen ministers rages, there are brothers and sisters in Christ who are suffering REAL persecution right now for their faith. As the church in America, we have no idea what real trials of faith are. We have the freedom to indulge in our selfishness and debate inane aspects of doctrine. “Are we still under the law?” “What about our freedom under Grace?” “Did God create me with this sin?” We have no idea what it means to wake up every morning and know that when we walk out of our houses we will have to make a decision to live as a witness for Christ even though it very well may mean our life. I believe our perspectives are all wrong. If we truly were seeking to love God with everything and to then pour that love out on others, we would have no time for the petty sin that so easily besets us. Think about it.
