David for forgiveness of sin – 2 Sam. 24:10 “And David’s heart smote him after that he had numbered the people. And David said unto the Lord, I have sinned greatly in that I have done: and now, I beseech thee, O Lord, take away the iniquity of thy servant; for I have done very foolishly.”
You know what makes me want to literally puke? Preachers who throw out a flowery sermon about Salvation and Justification and define Justification as “just as if I had never sinned.” Really?
It has become very evident, over the past few years, that Pastors who define Justification as mentioned are referring to the sin they give a free pass. Quite frankly, their own. “Free pass Friars” God forbid that a Christian commit a sin that reigns supreme on the bucket list of the unpardonable sins. Most Baptists will listen to a sermon, go home and forget what they heard. Rather, they should be practicing 2 Tim. 2:15.
Reap what you sow will find its way to the doorstep of the Pastors who limit the restoration, forgiveness, atonement, grace, and mercy of God. The bad thing is this: members just let it go on and on unchecked. Pastor, you better be able to Biblically backup your judgment, criticism, and unscriptural rejection of saints who have committed a sin that you don’t pardon but Christ does! Woe, Woe! to the Pastor who preaches his preferences and his convictions. Who cares about your preferences! Members, you need to remember that it is your responsibility to compare scripture with scripture. Critique what your Pastors says and compare to God’s Word.
