A Crime is a Crime

By Paul Stanley

It struck me last night after looking at a FB page about crime in Stockton that maybe what people view as crime might be a bit more subjective than we would like. What I mean is that they were talking about why there were cops around and helicopters circling the sky. They were all trying to figure out why they were there so I suggested an immigration search and man, you may have thought I dropped the worse racist slur imaginable.

It was as if I committed a crime by bringing up that particular topic. I wondered why the folks responding were so sensitive on that issue. After all, illegal immigration is a crime, or so I thought. But it was as if it were a taboo topic, or, that we could talk about other crimes but we have to leave that one alone.

As I thought about it, often times we handle sin pretty much the same way. We can talk about sin that others commit, but if it hits a little too close to home, then we must not talk about it lest one gets offended.

Just like crime is crime, sin is sin. We cannot pick and choose which sins we can partake in and the ones we cannot no more than picking which laws we decide to obey and the ones we choose to ignore. I realize that not everything is black and white, but God is clear on the subject of sin in the bible and if we are going to be "honest citizens," we must obey them whether it gets personal or not, just as we do the laws of the land.

If we allow the law to become subjective, pretty soon everything will be legal, and if we allow sin to become subjective, pretty soon all types of behaviors become acceptable. They reason God tells us yes and no in regards to sin is not to put a damper on our lives, but to protect us, and the law is the same way.

Make sure you stretch often as you play. Your muscles and joints are typically engaging in repetitive motions for long periods of time. Your muscles need to be properly stretched to avoid cramping and formation of blood clots. This is for your health. hackeroffice.com
