Kindred,


When people make excuses for bad behaviors, then there is no confession of sin, no repentance, no attempt at making things right or better, and ultimately no redemption or salvation.  


Misdirection, blame and scapegoating are the cowards' way of running from the truth and excusing the harm perpetrated.  


Admission by sinners of the delights of delighting in evil, is not the same as the confession of sin and the repentance of harm caused by their delights in evil.    


Even when believing oneself to be in the right, there is no justification for the wrongs of hurting or harming another person in crimes against humanity.


In each of these cases, there is no acknowledgement of the Lord or the Lord's commandments to love thy neighbor as self.  


When there is no acknowledgement of the Lord, the Lord will not guide or direct their path.  


Without the Lord's guidance, this person would be like a lost sheep wandering the desolate desert of fear and doubt.  


How can you trust the Lord with all your heart, if you do not have a heart? If you lean only to your own understanding?


The Lord does not require your blind allegiance or your unwavering doubt.  


The requirement is to acknowledge and trust in and love the Lord with all your heart, pure and true, and to honor the commandment to love beyond yourself in fellowship.


Only when we acknowledge the Truth can we be shown the Way and Live and love in trust.




Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
