If we have the characteristics of a sinner, then we could very well be sinners. By the way, what does a sinner look like? Probably just like us.
We all do the wrong things (sin}, but we have a habit of noticing the wrongdoing of other people, and not our wrongdoings. You would probably say that is not fair, of course, it is not fair, but that is the way we people have always been.
We disobey God’s commandments every day, some of us realized that we have done something wrong, and ask God to forgive us, and some of us do not care either way. That is the human nature in all of us, you see, we have these human bodies, that disagree with God’s commandments on just about every angle.
Starting today let’s stop calling people sinners unless you are calling yourself a sinner too. We break most of God’s laws every day, we lie, we steal, we hate, we commit adultery one way or the other, and etc. We commit these sins daily.
God created this planet with all of its wonders and us to live in harmony with each other. As you can see, we cannot do that, but God knew we could not live-in harmony because of our one major hindrance, the body flesh is and always will be against God’s laws and commandments.
Why would God put us in a body, that is against everything that he is for? As you can see, we have managed to stumble along in this life without God, and that is all we are doing. We cannot live the type of life that God intended for us to live without him.
Everything that has happened on this earth and everything that is happening now, and, in the future, God already knew about it, thousands of years ago. God knew what it takes for humans to live an abundant peaceful life on earth. So, why all of us are not living an abundant peaceful life.
We sometimes say some of our brothers and sisters are sinners, although we may be correct in saying those words, we forget we are sinners too. Keep in mind just because people go to the Sunday and/or weeknight religious worship services, they are still sinners.
I once thought people who went to the Sunday or weeknight religious worship services were not sinners, and when I saw them do something against God’s rules, I got upset about their actions. I sin all the time that is why I did not hang around the places of religious worship.
We all have sinned and came short of the glory of God, and we keep on sinning day in and day out, we just cannot stop ourselves from sinning. If Jesus would not have died for our sins, we would all end up in hell or someplace other than heaven.
I hear some people call other people sinners a lot, I guess they do not understand they are sinners too. I hear religious leaders and preachers say homosexuality is a sin, as if some of the stuff they are doing is not a sin, we have to be careful of what we say.
When you call someone a sinner or you say the stuff, they do is a sin, you are probably correct in saying that. But you must make sure the stuff you do is not a sin. We sin sometimes without being aware that we are sinning because it has become such a habit we do not recognize when we sin.
So, let’s stop calling people sinners, even though they are sinners, let us not say that because we all are sinners too.
