Thought of the Day July 13, 2022 A sin is a sin

By 2:42 PM


"Is our faith unconditional or conditional, total or partial? Is our faith based on conditions. Are we like Christians who say 'I am Christian but on the condition that things are done this way'. Am I a smorgasbord Christian, picking and choosing what I will believe and passing over what I do not accept? Is my faith in God or in myself? These Christians are afraid to grow, are afraid of lifes challenges, are afraid of the Lords challenges.” (Pope Francis)

Our faith is in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is based on his revelations and the truth he has revealed. Even though I am free, I can't call myself a Christian, a follower of Jesus the Christ, if I don't accept what he and his Church, through the Holy Spirit, has revealed to us about what is morally right or morally wrong. It is better for those who can't believe in what is revealed to walk away than to become a false disciple.  The smorgasbord Christian is walking on the wide road; the faithful Christian choses the narrow road. A sin is a sin. We have no right to determine the rightness or wrongness of an action. We are not God. The commands of the Lord are clear. We are called to follow his commands, not choose what we will follow or not.
