Is their sin in our Churches?

May 10, 2013

As bad as it hurts me to say this yes we do have sin in or churches. After all we are only human and that is no excuse, we are not perfect and never will be for there was only one perfect person and that was Jesus Christ. When we accept Jesus as our Lord we strive to be more like Him. But when we argue with each other, or jealous of one another, gossip about each other, and on and on with these things we are sinning against each other and against God. If we do anything to hurt someone or cause them to not come to God or fall away from God we are told that we should have a mill stone tied around our necks and dumped into the sea. This is one reason people call us hypocrites because we act so religious at church and so non-religious the rest of the week.

None of us want to think that we are sinning or causing trouble for the church but we do some times, and we as christen  should be able to go up to someone and say to them that this is not right and maybe you should think about what you are doing. We all know how hard it is to talk with people because we fill that it is none of our business. Then if we do confront them and they do not change what they are doing we are to get together with two or three others and go talk with them again, and if that does not work we are to bring it to the church body. This troubles me a lot also for I have seen churches split over the color of carpet being put into the church, I know that this is satan’s doing and this is why we are to treat them like you would to someone hurting your family. By doing this we hope and pray that they might see what they are doing wrong and turn away from it. My prayer for me is that if anyone sees me not living as I should as being one of God’s children that they would come up to me lovingly tell me so that I can correct it.

Dealing With Sin in the Church

Matthew 18:15-20

15 “If your brother or sister sins go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over. 16 But if they will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ 17 If they still refuse to listen, tell it to the church; and if they refuse to listen even to the church, treat them as you would a pagan or a tax collector.

18 “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will beloosed in heaven.

19 “Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
