The title of this post comes as a result of those professing Christians that enjoy pointing out the sin of others, but refuse to see their own sin. Many will pull out specific scripture from the Bible to bring forth judgment to other people. For example: One may quote scripture in reference to sins like homosexuality, adultery, slander — but then they think their sin is o.k. since they belong to a Church, prayer group or “Christian Gathering”. Wrong! Make sure that you are without sin, before you go up to someone else and point out their sin!
How many people out there would become angry if you pointed out the scripture in reference to marriage or divorce; then told them “I’ll just love and pray for you” and expect that to be o.k. with them? We must forgive everyone in our past and present, as I’m sure many of us have had friends & family that felt justified in their sin quotes. We do indeed need to love and pray for everyone.
Each person must take everything to the Lord in prayer for specific answers to questions about sin. Let the Holy Spirit guide us to scripture and may we each hear that still small voice of truth.
Yes we do need to know what sin is and repent from that sin. We also are not given a free pass to continue in sin. Remember that Jesus didn’t come to do away with law, but instead came to fulfill it. We are now under a new covenant, which means things like animal sacrifices are no longer required.

6 in all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.
Matthew 5:17 “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.
