I was asked an important question after last Sunday’s sermon– by my wife no less.
She reminded me of some things I preached earlier that day:
1) below the cross we are all equal (Eph. 2:19)
– that under the law we are all equally quilty of sin before God and below the cross, we are “in Christ” and we are all equally forgiven- we all belong to this church in equal standing.
2) some sins are worse than other sins (1 Cor. 6)
-Murdering someone is worse than stealing a pencil.”
