"...perhaps it’s misunderstood doctrine..."
“I love the phrase, ‘If sin smelled like smoke, we’d all stink.’ For some reason, perhaps it’s misunderstood doctrine, members of the church tend to measure the severity of sins. White lies? Oh, I give that a three on the sin scale. Adultery? That’s a 20! The truth of the matter is, sin is sin, doesn’t matter what color it is. ANY sin keeps us out of the presence of God. When we look down on someone for a mistake ‘we would never make’ we exalt ourselves. That is dangerous ground. If I could change something, it would be that church members—especially me—remember we’re ALL beggars at God’s feet.”
